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!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

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!
