I found this cute quote somewhere, have no idea who said it but I thought about it and it really sums it all up.

When I give to you what I make with my hands
I share with you my heart.

Embroidery machine

Since my embroidery machine and I have become friends, I have decided to try making some things that I used to make without using the embroidery machine.
The first thing on that list was mending my pants...looks so much better to have something pretty there instead of a regular patch.
The next thing on my list was making postcards.
I learned how to make them several years ago, but never embroidered on them before.
The trick is to find a design that will fit the 4 x 6 inch card.

Spring Forward...................

I love the weekend when daylight savings begins....first I get more daylight in the evenings, and I get more done it seems. Funny how darkness, and not the actual time makes me feel it is later than it actually is.

The other thing I like about daylight savings time is, Sunday morning church service....You can tell the people who forgot to set their clocks, they are arriving as the rest of us are leaving.

I don't mind getting up in the dark, as I do not get up that early, and when I do get up it is already light...But OH how I LOVE having that feeling that the days have gotten longer and I can work so much later than I used to. And the sunlight is out longer, I love the sunlight it is so energizing.
