Yard Work and A Thread Seminar

I spent the morning out in the yard weeding flower beds and cutting back the wild rose bush that was threatening to take over the entire yard.  It was a beautiful morning to be outside, sunny with a nice cool breeze.

We had ribs and corn on the cob for lunch.  That corn we got on Wednesday is so good!! 

This afternoon I went into the local quilt shop for a Floriani Thread workshop.  The seminar was geared toward people who own the high dollar embroidery sewing machines.  While I would love to have one I just don’t think I would use the machine to its potential.  Mom has one and so does LoraLee and if I need something embroidered they are very accommodating!  The second half of the workshop focused on all the different stabilizers and sewing aids that can be used in quilting, sewing and embroidery—that’s why I went!  But the best part of the whole deal was each attendee received a gift box containing a sample of the stabilizing products and best of all, 10 spools of Floriani embroidery thread which can also be used on the longarm.  Beautiful colors making the $30 fee for the class well worth it!IMG_0265

Since the bear visitors were here we have been locking the doors at night—our doors have the lever handles and could easily be opened by a bear.  The downside—we are so unused to locking the doors we keep locking ourselves out.  As was the case this morning when we went on our walk—couldn’t get in the back door so I walked around onto the deck to go in the unlocked bedroom door and look who came to visit this morning:IMG_0262 Six grouse on the deck rail.


  1. I like those visitors a lot better than the big furry one from a few nights ago! :)

  2. Better grouse than bears!! Find an outdoor hiding place for a house key so you can get in when you lock yourselves out.

  3. better to have grouse waiting for you rather than the 'three bears'!!
