College boy, Zach, has been home just over a week, and I sure am enjoying having him home. :) I know the days of having him here all to myself are numbered...the older he gets, the less and less time he'll be here and soon he'll have his own life and career in the Air Force and who knows how much I'll get to see him then. We moved to Idaho just a couple weeks before he left for college, so he doesn't really have any friends here to hang out with....so we've been spending our evenings playing Rockband and board games. He's always been our "game" boy. The picture above was taken last week at a place called Balanced Rock in Idaho.
This is a picture of Zach that I pulled off of Facebook. It was taken by a fellow ROTC cadet...but I liked it! :) It kind of gives me a glimpse of his future and the man he is becoming. ....sigh....
This is a picture of my new baby! Baby Lock Espire, that is. Yes, I have a new machine! My "dream" machine has given me one headache after another for the two years that I owned it...it was hard to admit that I wasn't happy with the dream machine and that I needed to make the decision to try another dream! :) So far, I'm very pleased with this one. I love the thread cutting feature and that it tells me when the bobbin is low! Woohoo...you know how many times I've sewn chains of fabric only to find I've run out of bobbin! (I know we've all done that....) Here is a picture of the first project I sewed on my new machine. I made Bitty Baby clothes for my neice's birthday! All she wanted was boy clothes for her bitty baby twin...

Here's a close up of Sleeping Smokey...he really likes this spot because of the lamp on my cutting table. It's nice and warm right there.

Of course, Smokey had to jump up and check out the blocks out while they were on my mini design wall. He's such a diligent employee. He even posed for a picture.
