I had the loveliest surprise when I came home last night. I saw the lid up on my mailbox and feared it was stuffed full of bills (as usual). Imagine my surprise when I found this......
Someone left a bottle of wine! No card, no note, just a happy surprise. I found out later it was from a friend I had done a tiny favor for at work. Sweet! And it came in handy as "storm wine" as you guessed it.........another storm today. Work was closed again so I had a nice relaxing day. It's still snowing and blowing so no point in shovelling until tomorrow.
I made some tea biscuits for lunch. Seemed like a good comfort food, hot from the oven and drizzled with molasses
And then I decided to try and fix the sewing machine again. Last time I tried I broke the needle. I managed to replace it and get that stupid walking foot attached again.
I love what the walking foot does, but this one is a piece of crap. It's a Singer brand to fit the machine but it's made very poorly. All you have to do is look at it sideways and the foot falls off. So I had to go very slowly and continually check to be sure it wasn't going to fall off. I managed to get about 1/3 quilted when I quit for the day. I'll see how far I get tomorrow.
Did I mention I'm off again tomorrow? And that Monday is a holiday.......extra long weekend for me! I think that calls for some more storm wine 😛 🍷
