Knitter and Now Quilter?

Thanks for all the well wishes for Jessie. She is doing great. Yesterday I took her to Collins Animal Hospital (They are so nice!) for a second opinion and the doctor said that she was infected. He gave me antibiotics and told me how to clean her up so she should be all healed in about a week. She already looked better this morning.

We got to see the shuttle launch on Friday evening. It was awesome from the water. With all the rushing out the door to get a good spot I forgot my camera. I was so mad at myself that I couldn’t get any pictures. I am trying to get some from friends that had cameras though. It seemed a lot louder from the water than it is from land. Did anyone else think so?

I also got a nice package from my Mom and Aunt Martha on Friday.
I couldn’t believe they bought me a sewing machine. Thank you guys!! I have been wanting one for a while. This one is so cool! It is a Brother ES2000. It is so easy to use and I have already started making some little drawstring bags that I saw on the Happy Things Blog.


I just love the way they came out and they were really easy too. Now that I know that I can sew straight lines I want to try and make a quilt. I know it will take some time to gather the fabric and plan it out. Oh, and learn how to do it, but I know I can and it will be fun.

Sadly Sheldon is still without legs, But I had so many other things to play with over the weekend. I did make it to the heel on the Freesia sock last night. I hope to have it finished and be on the leg tonight. More pictures of it tomorrow. I don’t know if I like how it is going yet, but I am not the type of person who likes to rip back something I have worked hard on. We’ll see how it goes.

Have an awesome Tuesday!! It looks like it is going to storm in a minute here.

Cute fabric on the drawstring bags.

We had that storm you wrote about. Right after lunch the winds kicked up something terrible! Not much rain though.
