Faye's Sewing Adventure is Back Again...

...it's been far too long since I've written a blog post.  I have sincerely missed posting, but you know - LIFE!  I finished my high school year at the end of May.  I then made my annual transition to college life by getting use to teaching online - which by the way isn't as complicated as I thought it would be.  It's actually really nice getting to learn something new.

I kept thinking that I would sit down and write a blog post, but kept putting it off because I hadn't sewn anything new.  I finally said forget about being absent for such a long time - today is the day.

In mid June I joined my family in North Carolina for the celebration of my grandson Malachi's graduation (the youngest of four grands).  I am so proud of him as I am of all the others.  He's North Carolina A&T Bound promising to become the family's first engineer.  I believe him too!


 and got to meet my newest great-granddaughter, Novah Skye for the very first time.  She is truly a added blessing.
 In the meantime, I had to switch up sewing machines because it was way past time to have my work horse serviced.
My Janome 3022 is really a good electronic machine that I only pull out every now and again.  I actually hate switching machines and getting use to another one.
But I got my BabyLock Sophia serviced in record time with a bonus.  They replaced my automatic threader mechanism for only $12.99.  It's been broken for a long time, but when I checked on getting it replaced earlier I was quoted $169.00.  I said "no way, I'll just thread it the old fashion way".  I'm ready to get some real sewing done now and get back into the swing of things...

    1. Hi Leslie thank you! Yes, they've actually live in Greensboro since he was little. He has an older brother (rising senior) and he wants to follow his footsteps. I've visited Bennett there too.
