Sewing machine woes...

Well today I took my machine to the shop to get it repaired.  Bad new over $100 to 200 to repair, good news it is repairable.  Looks like a gear broke.  He told me that to replace my machine it would cost more than $900.  So I guess under 200 is better than 900.  I must live under a little black cloud that likes to dump on me.

It is the birthday celebration month

Grace celebrated her 10th birthday yesterday.  Her mother took her to get her ears pierced.  she was delighted.  I could tell that she is excited to wear all the earrings she got for her birthday after her ears heal.  The lower picture is Grace putting Abby in a trans state.  (didn't work)

Nana sews Kelly a new new outfit

Kelly's new outfit looked darling.  I think she thought I still think of her as a baby, and she looks grown up in this little suit.  When I look at the pictures, I see that Kelly looks more and more like her mother.  I hadn't noticed that before.  Old eyes see new things!

Two little boys

When I took over Mary Jane's new dress my two little boys were so cute.  Adam wanted his picture taken so I obliged and he stood in Mary's "elevator."  so cute!!!  Kenny wanted me to play with him.  He would bring me toys and talk so cute.  I could not understand one word but he was sure I was listening and kept jabbering.  He is such a funny child, last time I was there he would not even let me touch him.  Yesterday, he gave me a kiss and could not get close enough.  I feel so lucky when the children are so receptive to Jim and I.  Mary reminded me that the "motahome" was killed.  She pretended her toy "motahome" was on fire too.  She will miss camping as much as me.

I feel like sewing again

Mary Jane loved her new dress.  She asked me if she could keep it at her house.  Guess she thought I might have to take it home to altar it.  I assured her she could keep it and take it to her room.  My guess is, she slept in it because she did not want to take it off.  Makes my heart warm when the children like the clothes.
