Come on, get happy....

Yarntini Self-Striping Superwash in Sunshine

These socks just evoke such a happiness...they say summer to me. Ah, the beach. Just simple ole stockinette socks are so darned nice for the ego. Easy peasy.

What else made me happy this week was a trip to the sewing machine repair shop. My machine has been slowly showing some age, but finally, the presser foot just wouldn't go down - the presser foot and the thingy to put it down weren't friends anymore. Unusable. I have had my machine for 12 years and have never taken it in...many of those years it sat neglected - but still, it needed to be cleaned at least - I felt like a bad pet owner, I mean I wouldn't stop feeding my cat, would I? Anyways when I called Jen at The Electric Needle she knew exactly what my problem was. I took it to her on Wednesday, and by Thursday she had it back to me. I am not going to lie, I felt totally giddy just getting my machine back all shiney, and working. Now I have some new fabric, and need to make something. I love that feeling - all of that possibility.

some scraps of flea market fancy that I traded my first born for...

I feel another mug rug coming on...
