Here is Canandaigua Lake. I don't think we are at the peak of color yet. Next week, maybe?
Lets hope those cables don't snap. Yikes!!!!
Pretending not to be afraid of heights ! I have conquered another part of my Corky Personality!

These costumes were not fun. Messy ,very messy. I think, we vacuumed up fur for a year. I still have all of these costumes. I am still searching. I will find 1978. More to come......

I still need to embellish, quilt, and bind. But, I will take progress in any shape or form. :0)
I chose green because it's a neutral color to me. Mother Nature uses it often. Let us not forget American dollars are that color.
I found the pattern in this magazine.
My house guest went home over the weekend. It seems weird without Silly Gilly.
Nothing taste better than a cool, crisp Pepsi on a fall day. So much for dog toys.
Miss Elly is happy, her beauty will no longer be ignored. See it even happens with dogs !

Notice her rosie pink cheeks. Do you remember where the signiture is?
What was that name?
I was a teen back then. Just a mere 13. I remember recieving a cabbage patch and a boom box. Santa was good to me that year!

I really need to make myself some flannel PJ pants. I would buy them but, the legs are always too short. I could buy mens but, there not girly enough for me. PJ pants are cheaper to make anyway. I had to throw out all of my pj pants out from last year. They were almost "see through." Can't answer the door with everyone knowing what color my undergarmets are. LOL!!!!

A BIG huge thanks to Dr Carl, the CSI of sewing machines.
He asked me when was the last time I oiled it? My face must have said it all. Never was my response. Your suppose to oil this machine every 8 sewing hours. oops!
My hubby figured , I am only 500 hours behind. Yikes! Thanks to him! I brush it out and change the needle on a regular basis. Oh well, a lesson learned.
I think, I will oil all machines on Sunday and Wednesday from now on. I have missed the auto thread cutter, needle down position, and other handy features.
My serger has also been oil deprived. Yikes! Is that why they were louder than I remember? Maybe? **giggle**
I had better go do that now.

It is Christmas!
Now, I am in high gear. Time is ticking. The pressure is on.
Here is my list. A little overwhelming...but relax ...I have 90 days. **sigh/giggle**
Making some doll clothes.
Using old dryer sheets to make Strip blocks.
This is what started my sewing/quilting obsession. Sewing for Barbie before, I could read. I think I was 5 or 6 years old.
She is a proud member of my doll collection. The 1991 Holiday Barbie. She was purchased at Woolworth's.
And tote Bags( I almost forgot)~ LOL!
I know what I am planning but, I can't say. (they read my blog) I can say if they behave they may get something from my little sewing/quilting corner. **giggle**
All of these plans happen by GOOD TIME MANAGEMENT!!!! Those are 3 words that I do NOT care for. But, must live and breathe by. Otherwise I fail and that is not an option...
On MY pillow at 4:30 am. LOL!!!
Someone needs to change the date on my camera again.

I wanted to do a rolled hem. A simple task. uhh no! I had to get out the book. Talk to it nicely..(not really) finally.... I get what I desire. : ) Yippee!
A very nice edge finish.
All of my doggies are sleeping. I will take a picture later today, of them modeling these doggy hankies.
I do have a house guest. My Dad is in the hospital. ( He will be fine.) So, while he recovers ..."Silly Gilly" is staying with us. He is a very polite house guest. Making himself at home. Isn't he too Cute!!
I will try to get a picture of Silly Gilly and Miss Elly together. With a little luck maybe Mitzie too! I may be pushing my luck but, there is always cut and paste. **giggle**

This is going to be a Dog Hanky. How does my rolled hem work on my serger again? I can't remember. When all else fails...get the manual out! : )
What are my blogging plans?
- A little sewing machine tour. I would consider myself a collector.
- Tell you all about an online auction coming up.
- Share a little about my job hunt.
