Ahhh, The Emotions Go Wild

The highs and lows around here — it feels like the stock market!

Unfortunately, my sewing machine is sick.  Poor thing.  I was sewing along on new dresses for the girls when all of a sudden there was a loud clunk and the whirr of a non-moving machine.  After I cleaned up the mess of thread and the almost-broken needle, I realized that the bobbin casing is now hitting the machine and won’t move.  Boo.  So, the machine is at the sewing machine hospital for an estimated 10 day stay and I’m here, twiddling my thumbs and fretting about the things on my sewing list.  Ahh, sadness.

With this free time, though, I was going through pinterest and happened upon some of my quilts pinned onto people’s boards, and even repinned with great comments.  Had me SO excited, and it was so much fun to see people really admiring my work!

And in the meantime, just one more week until summer is officially over and school starts for my Elena.  A first grader.  Oh MY!

Finally, since I couldn’t go pictureless, above is one of my girls this summer inspecting one of their many science experiments: white carnations in food-dyed water.  The blue water definitely worked the best!
