Teaching young children to use a sewing machine

 I have been meaning to post this forever(for you Dawn).
 This is how I modifed the control foot on LiLi's sewing machine to make it easier for her to use.  You need a piece of wood cut to the width of the foot control.  Experiment with the sewing speed to decide how high it needs to be.
 Popster custom cut mine but you could probably use something like a paint stick or a shim?
 All you need to do is tape to back of the foot
 Now you can see how it stops the control from going down too far so the machine will not sew at full speed.  I also put a piece of this tape on the stitch plate to help her sew in a straight line.

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
