    Donna; DH gets them from work. Lily is pretty talented with them. She can get the packaging open that they come in plus she can catch them in the air or bat them back at me while plug is in midair. She carries them in her mouth and is very affectionate if she has one and wants you to notice so you'll play with her. Ah yes, I am well-trained by my cat. She also can remember the space/area where you got the latest plug from so she can help herself later if her wait staff are completely unobservant or even sleeping. ~ Chris

    1926 Singer 127

    I was given this Singer 127 as a boat anchor and I decided to practice cleaning and restoring on it. There were some kind of mud nesting bugs that had half flilled the face insides and all across the arm of the machine. It was rusted solid on the inside.
    Well I have it as good as I can get it. She is still missing a front slide bobbin plate, shuttle and bobbin and in the cleaning her bobbin winder broke. She is going into storage until I decide what to do with her, but she is clean and turns easily now. Maybe she just needs a new home, too.

The quilts were just grand this year! Such talented ladies. One of our members won Best of Show at Road to California this year...she and a friend of hers made a quilt that is just out of this world. The other lady does the piecing and applique, and she does the quilting sitting down with her Bernina on a table. No long arm!! She has won Best of Show at other national shows for her quilting. She is just amazing!
    I'm going to have to go back through the photos to see that quilt. Which one was it? All are beautiful!

    Off topic I'm making my dough for the beignets. The dough needs to chill for at least 4 hours. Plan to snack on some after dinner tonight!
