Ain't she cute here, holding that quilt and sewing the binding on sew nicely. That's my Mary. An old girl, but she sure does a good job. I'm afriad I'm going to have to take the cover off the foot control and see if it's dirty or anything. She takes a few minutes to warm up and that doesn't seem right after I've replaced all the lubricant and given her a good oiling. If cleaning up the foot control doesn't solve it, I'll have to think about checking the motor more closely. I'm sure it's a snap to take out and clean up. Fortunately, the repair manual was available on the internet, so I feel like I can do just about anything.
(And, yes, I was just 18 inches from having that binding sewn all the way around. Now, I have to go back and make some "corrections". It was my first all machine binding, after all.)
Ain't she cute? Just look at those big eyes. And, no, she's never going to grow into those ears. They're dachshund size and chihuahua shape. This was when Sydney was trying to put a flower on her as a halloween costume. Didn't work very well. She doesn't like costumes very much. And, everything has to go into her mouth.
Ain't she cute? That's my girl, right there in the middle. She's just tipped off the basketball. She's certainly found her sport. She has the height for it and those long slender fingers are sticky on a basketball. She really enjoyed herself and after the first game, the coaches moved girls from the A team to the B team and Sydney got moved up to A. While I am proud of her for being moved up, I am very disappointed in the A team coach who told the A team, during the middle of the game, that she was going to switch the teams around because they were playing so badly. That didn't go over very well with me. I also didn't much approve of her aggression toward the girls during the game. I guess I got spoiled with the volleyball coach who was unflappable, and that's very high praise, coming from me.
So, that's my cuteness for the day. Can't think of a thing to share for WBW. Maybe something will come to me later. Some old memory. For now, I'm exhausted by work again and last night was a very restless one, and I just can't think of old memories right now.
Take care and have a great Wednesday. We have tonight off. No after school activities. I hope to finally get my kitchen cleaned back up. There has been no time or inclination this week.
