I gave mine away. I got so tired of everyone asking me to fix this, hem that, catch these spots for me. Spike has it now. Let him do all the mending for the family.

Yesterday was grocery day. And it is also fill up the freezer month. Not one piece of meat in the freezer. So I was wrapping and wrapping. My hands are so cold from handling the cold meats. (Will they ever get warm again?) And I ran out of freezer bags and wrap right in the middle of all of it. I still have some meats to wrap up for the freezer.

I went overboard and bought a treat for myself. A very large filet of Wild Iceland Haddock. $9.99 per pound. Total cost? $18.00. Haddock is my all time favorite fish. I could eat it three times a day, seven days a week.

Evidently, DeMoula's must have had a bonus weekend. No mushrooms, and so many other items were missing from the shelves. They had flats everywhere with the help filling up the shelves as fast as they could. It made getting around the store with an electric cart difficult. Have to send Spike back tomorrow for the freezer bags and wrap.

Hope everything goes well with your surgery LP. You will feel so much better when it's over.

Dawglover, I have so many jeans I've saved for a project like this. If I make the lap quilts, I'm planning on donating them to local nursing homes.

I've had mine set up at my sisters house this week to do mending. I've had it with me in my tiny apartment because I didn't know if the computerized machine would have been harmed by extended periods of sub zero temperatures in my storage unit. I have been researching making curtains and had no idea how many ways there were to make curtains. The biggest challenge was to decide the style. I have decided to do grommets and am now waiting for my sewing room to be completed. The hickory engineered wood flooring starts to go down today and will take a week to lay. An engineered wood flooring is the only kind of wood flooring that can be used with radiant heated floors.

I will sometimes do mending for family members, but most of the time I tell them they are free to come over and use the sewing machine whenever they want to. Most of the time, they don't.
