    Just got in the door - DS got T-boned - totaled my old car. I hope he can collect some insurance - likely the other guy was on drugs - DS is ok - bruised, burned from the air bags, aches and scratches. He really is blessed to have walked away from that wreck. The car was thrown a pretty long ways and stopped by a big electrical or phone box on the far side of the road by the back end of his car. Hurray for airbags. Oh his little car was in the parking lot when we got there - right where he landed.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I read your blog today. Your quilts are beautiful!! You are very artistic with your quilting, and the birthday cake for your 1 year old was adorable. I enjoyed quickly reading through your wonderful blog, a great inspiration! Thanks!!!
    Well thank you! What a copmliment. Hahaha, about the cake - I got really into cake baking for a minute. I thought that might become the new quilting for me...silly me. I should have known better!

    I knew a Monica once, a neighbor of mine, but she's moved!

    Hahaha - now SEE! Look at that. Checks and balances you all are! Hahaha! I hadn't even thought about what I would rather be called. My identity is all wrapped up in the name Valerie that I might not know what to do if someone called me anything else!

    Edited to add - Miriam I didn't hit refresh before replying...so your post just showed up for me! I hope your son is alright! How scary!

    Miriam, sorry about the accident. I don't know whether to love or hate airbags. I'm glad your son was able to walk away.

    Miriam,
    I'm so glad that your DS is okay for the most part, it could've been so much worse.
    I used to have an Aunt Miriam, she was my Grandma Ruth's sister. I miss them.

    His guardian angel came to his rescue. WOW. He will be sore tomorrow.
    Miriam you have so much bad drama going on in your household lately.
    Knock on wood, things happen in threes...you need better karma over there.
    Maybe you should plant some trees or do some type of Feng Shui.
    I'm saving another prayer for you and your family.

    Just took him home to let the dog out. Yeah there is a LOT of drama around here - you just don't know the half of it... I've had the threes - all day - at work one of the stupid store managers accused me of breaking 11 of her grocery carts - I'm in there an hour a week or less... just started that store 6 months ago... LOL... If she is so smart why didn't she just give me the same broken cart every week??? Then we have our wonderful (NOT) neighborhood. I'm just not going to go there... too close to home...

    Wilbur is doing real well - he suddenly knows his numbers, shapes, colors and the alphabet - DD does not remember teaching him any of that. He's also now talking in sentences, using the potty, staying dry all night and into EVERYTHING an almost 3 year old can find to get into plus he's gained a bit of weight. Major good stuff for an almost 3 year old. DD wonders how long he had that infection.

    Thanks, Monica!! The quilt is special to me because I made it for a special friend who is not able to anything like sewing. I made it for her to give to her daughter for graduation. Long story, but she's physically very limited. It was my blessing to make it for her.

    The Davis is doing pretty well. Poor old girl was left to herself for a long time. She was barely moving when we got her, but I oiled her up really good and after a couple of days got her to move freely. Had to really clean everything we could reach, but now she sews. DH hasn't started working on her cabinet yet....that's probably quite a ways down his HoneyDo list!! LOL

    Glad to be back!!

Geeze, I didn't know if I should just keep my mouth shut about what she had, or tell her the truth? Anyway, I decided to tell her that she didn't have a vintage HC at all, but a modern reproduction of the original Singer model 15 with a Sphinx decal - probably made in either Taiwan or China. What do you guys think? Do you think I should not have burst her bubble?

    Oh, Nancy! Not a good position to be in, but absolutely tell her the truth. She needs to know. She'll be OK with you telling her.

    Judy, the coffin top is actually quite plain, plus it has two dime sized holes in it where something in that garage fell on it and broke pieces out. DH is just going to put veneer over those sides to cover the holes, rather than just trying to fill the holes somehow.
