Abby's First Snow

Abby: Um, mommy? Where's the grass? I have to do my business and I can't find the green stuff. I'm not even six months old yet I don't know what this stuff is. Is it alive? Can it hurt me? If you come outside with me I promise I won't be scared. I think I'll just sit here and wait for you. Abby: I bet this white stuff is food! Yummy! And look at all of it! I'm not going in when mommy calls or it might be gone the next time I go outside. Sophia: Sheesh, it's just snow. I don't know why Abby is getting so excited over it. It comes every year and it stays for a really long time. I'm glad mommy made me a fur coat because that snow is cold! Sophia: M-o-m-m-y! Abby's trying to get my fur coat! Tell her to leave me alone. Abby and Sophia: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Yehaw! I'm back in the saddle again!

That's right baby! My sewing machine is home from the sewing machine hospital and she's all fixed up and ready to go. After I finish baking a batch of pumpkin bars for hubby to bring to his guy thing this weekend I'm off to spend some quality time with my sewing machine.

I know I shouldn't have, but it's Fabric Mart!

When I read a Shannon's post about using these beautiful Anna Sui silk's for linings... well, what can I say? My fingers typed in Fabric Mart's web address on my keyboard and in minutes and order was placed. The package arrived today and I must say, these silks are even more beautiful in person than they appear in the photograph. Oh how I love the way silk feels!
