Here it is already Monday!!!  So it's Monday Mug Memories!  I have three pictures of today's mug.  Gotta show you all the way around this one.  It's from The Buggy Barn in Reardon, Washington.  I didn't get it this past April but a few years before.  What a lovely shop!!

I spent some time during this snowy, rainy weekend to get my sewing and craft room cleaned up.  Feels so good to go in there now.  Not perfect but I breathe easier when I walk in.

This is what I woke up to Saturday.  It's not like that now, the snow is all gone but we have no sunshine.  My forecast shows sun tomorrow.....I sure hope it's right!

Saturday the sewing machine repair guy Chris was at the shop.  Earlier in the week he came and repaired a lady's Featherweight.  So a light bulb went off in my head and I brought mine in for him.  I used it Friday night...quite different from my big Janome!!!  She sounds a bit tinny...but she's old!!!!! LOL!  I'll take it out and use it on occasion to keep her running smoothly.

I hope to continue sewing on a table-runner I started yesterday.  I had it in my purge pile but it was from a cute little shop in Exeter, Ontario that is no longer open.  I bought it while there with my cousin and my aunt.....and the chocolate store was across the street.  I love that little town!!!!!  So I couldn't part with the memories but told myself if I was keeping it, it had to get done!  I'm almost done the hand stitching on the last block and will get it put together today.  A picture for tomorrow's post!!

Great job on the sew room! Love the stories. Mug is fun. Be gone snow!! Happy stitchin' on that runner. Your "tidy" is preferable to my "creative chaos". I may need professional help.

Pegs, if I was closer I would help you tame your chaos...but only if you wanted me to!!! Do you find your featherweight tinny sounding when you use her or does she purr?? :) Snow is gone and the sun is shining...yippee!!!!

See you tonight Sue!!

My little Lightweight is wonderful, but on one side now I'm using my Bernina. Must remember to give her a run now and then. Great machine, what.

Margaret Macpherson said...

She purrs, I think. Have to oil and clean often.

Jane said...

Hmmmmm. Sounds like something metal is maybe rattling but nothing big. Hard to describe. The servicing cost me $100 so I want her to purr!!!!!!! LOL!
