I love Veteran's Day. It's a great day to thank men and women for serving their country. I was in the Air Force many years ago and althought I didn't retire from the service, I will always remember my Air Force experience as a positive time in my life.
I will spend Veteran's Day quietly. I plan to do some housework, walk the dog, sew a little and take my new to me 301 Singer to the sewing machine doctor and leave her for a tune up and new cords.

Looks like things are settling down....somewhat.
All of us are staying in touch, just still waiting for the dust to settle and read all the new rules. SO many. Here's the ones I find really different.
I've had this fantastic "free" pattern for a fabric wallet for months, but ithe measurements for the fabric is in centimeters instead of inches. I searched the internet for conversions and all. Well, just yesterday, I was making a purse and when I turned my measuring tape over...WOW!!! The centimeters are converted on the other side...my BIG AH HA!! Moment. STUPID ME!!
