Happy Leap Year!

I am moving on with my sewing situation,... really, I am...I'm even okay with an extra day of cold, dreary February,... really, I am....I posted this pic a year ago because this fragrance, Éclat d’Arpège, makes me happy and I wear in in Spring and Summer. I purchase it from here..

*And Happy Birthday to my friend Denise who is 13 today, I mean 56....

The Latest

More the company was so professional that they left me an anonymous comment. Yes, and said I yelled and swore on the phone. Think I'll use that in my harassment case because that is not true AND I do not curse..The problem is that the company Sew CHic, in my hometown, went out of business (I think I know why) but I received a call from her today and she has found all of my information..original bill of sale, registration and warranty information. Viking would not believe me when I told them I had registered and I really bought the machine, etc. but The previous owner had left town. So the way I see it, they should have taken extra special care of me. Whatever...

So here it is....if you want to embroider, I would not suggest a viking / husq. designer SE you need a stronger, more reliable and functional one. The customer service is poor, okay terrible..period...the end.

But I made this purse before it went on the outs. The towel I did with my old machine (Elna CE20) but had to keep rehooping. Seriously, I never had had the first moments' trouble with it. I found the retro designs and couldn't wait to try them out. So my friends get my samples!

* I am going to be honest...I cried today from the stress because Viking/Hus and the sewing machine dealership isn't being very helpful. I bought the machine only 2 years ago and found my canceled check today. I am embarrassed to say I wrote a check out for 8,000.00+ and just can't believe they would not be kinder to me....

It's A God Thing II

My youngest son had been asking me about becoming a christian for a year or so. We discussed and read the book "How to Become a Christian". He was ready to walk the aisle and tell our congregation. My husband was on-call though and said he would be operating all day. My son did not want to wait. Our children's sermon yesterday morning was a sweet story about an indian "rite of passage" between a father and son. I whispered, "we really should wait until your daddy is here". "No" was his answer. My older son texted (what did we do w/o our cell phones?) hubby and told him and he said he was just getting of his cases canceled. I said "come in your scrubs if you need to"... about the time little one was introduced about his decision, there comes hubby walking down the aisle. Sweet, too sweet....

Deleted Posts

I have had to delete a couple of posts, one because a comment was seriously "viral ish". The other post was written in anger and I deleted it at five am this morning when I awoke stressing about it. It was theraputic though:o)
We are back to school tomorrow after a long Winter's Break. Busy week of activities as many of you are. This weekend is my oldest son's Sweetheart Dance. I am hosting the Freshman Class for a breakfast. Can not wait to show pics!

Amazing Chair

I monogrammed it using my Viking/Huska Designer SE and she is going in for a check-up today. I had to find a specialist. *See below

My new neighbor and I have basically collaborated on both our daughter's rooms. It is easy to share paint colors, material and even carpet. Here is a chair that I monogrammed for her and she recovered it. It is the cutest chair I have seen! I wish the pics did it justice. See what you can do with any old chair?

My Baby's Sick:o(

She just keeps blinking and and is stoic. She must go see the embroidery machine Dr. I'll just sew then and finally work on my daughter's window treatments.

My Valentine..

This is what hubby gave me for Valentine's Day. Three stack rings in my children's birthstones and mine in between, which just happens to be a diamond. My husband's is an emerald, as the pic shows, but my daughter's is Peridot.

Girl's Weekend

Yeehaw! We've been in Dallas, Texas for a cheerleading championship. We had the best time on our girl's trip! Daughter and I left the boys at home and flew for the weekend. The shopping and food was great! The cheerleading was great too!

Thank Goodness It's Friday

Oldest son has just finished basketball and has begun baseball this week. I love baseball as it screams Spring and Summer. I think I am glad it is Friday, but our weekends seem to be just as busy these days! Have a great one!

Little Purchase for my Little Guy

Saw this Lilly swimsuit and thought my eight year old needed it. Not all stores had it on-line so I had to search. I don't think my conservative hubby will go for the matching one though !

The Preppy Thing To Do!

I voted, but not without reservations....I just want total honesty, loyalty and integrity. Today, I checked my voice mail and I had 14 new messages. The candidates were calling to make a last-ditch effort in gaining my support. Just tell me good things about YOU ...please don't bad-mouth the other candidate. I am so apathetic about the whole race and wish we could start all over with candidates. Does anyone else feel this way?

Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?

this quiz was made by Lori Fury

I am a huge fan of historical fiction and feel I know Henry very well...I guess I thought I would be Anne Boleyn... I even went back and changed some answers and I am still Catherine of Aragon ! At least he didn't chop off my head!
