I started this day with sewing machine shopping. I have lived with only one machine forever. If it goes in the shop I don’t sew that week. If I’m quilting something I finish it before I piece something else because I don’t want to change the machine set-up. This year my old machine broke right before we were snowed in for three days. Sad face.
I sewed on the machine I thought I wanted, and then I sewed on a machine with similar features. I stuck to my original choice and bought a Pfaff with the ten-inch bed. Talk about a world of difference when you quilt. I should have done this years ago.
The family spent the afternoon in the boat on the Maumee River. We were the only ones out there except a couple of kayakers. It was a little on the hot side, but otherwise a perfect day.
I took a picture of this tree because the exposed roots were so cool. See the deer path on the left? The deer swim out to this island and do whatever deer do.
The tree picture may turn into a quilt.
Still on track to be the best vacation ever.
I love my large bed machine. Well I just love the machine period. It’s a Jerome and it’s great.
