I am so glad it is Friday!! This week has gone by quickly, but it has been exhausting and stressful!!

Overnight, we had just a few flurries fall. When I got into my van this morning, snowflakes were just gently laying on the windshield. It was neat because you could see them each individually. I had to take a picture of it. They're each unique and each beautiful.

Tomorrow I am taking my embroidery machine (Brother 180-D) to be repaired. I knocked out the timing on it making Kurt's embroidered blanket for Christmas. I filed my taxes tonight, so now I will have the money to have it repaired.

I am looking forward to going to the shop to have it repaired. They are a Viking and Brother dealership, which is perfect for me since I have a Viking sewing machine (Freesia 425) and a Brother embroidery machine (180-D).

I am also going to begin working on my "top secret" quilt. I'll write more about that tomorrow, But for now, I am going upstairs to snuggle under my antique singer print fleece blanket and read a quilting magazine -- ahhhh - that is my idea of a perfect Friday night!!


  1. Hope your machine is well soon. Lucky to find a dealer who carries both brands of machines!!

    Can't wait to read about your "top secret" quilt tomorrow!!

    Snuggling up with a favorite blanket and reading a quilt magazine sounds like a perfect Friday night to me.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. We lived in Wernersville for 18 months and it is soooooo beautiful there. My husband took a job in the area and we had thought we would live there forever. Sadly the company went out of business and we moved back to KS. That was 15 years ago and I still miss it. We have dear friends in Reading.
    We had a very hard winter when we were there and used up all the snow days. Our 14 & 17 year old boys loved the snow in Dec., but hated it by April. We lived on Omega Circle, south of Penn Ave.
    If I'm reading your blog correctly, you are new in the area. I do hope you learn to love it as much as we did.
