Re: Need a new sewing machine

I have a Janome, bought at Hancock Fabrics a few years before they went out of business. It's computerized, but is still pretty basic, and has been a really good machine for the relatively simple sewing I do now. The most complicated thing I've done in recent years is put in a zipper.

Re: Daily Check in March 8, 2021

It's turned into a lovely, sunny day. I went out around 3 p.m. to put gas in my car and go to Dollar Tree for a few items. Used gift cards at both, so no real money spent. Dollar Tree is in the same shopping center as a tiny Goodwill store. I went in the GW and poked around. There were only three pe...

Re: Daily Check in March 8, 2021

Good morning, frugal ones. I way overdid working on the house this weekend and all my arthritic spots were yelling loudly at midnight, so I am taking a sick day today.

Janet, I am worn to a nub! But the house is clean and fresh. Everything is back where it's supposed to be. DH decided he did not want a big dinner, so I sat down with some mending while watching TV.

Re: Daily Check-in March 7, 2021

Good morning, frugal ones. I am curled up on the sofa with the little dogs. It's quite chilly this morning, but things are going to warm up this week. Today I must go grocery shopping and give DS's bathroom a thorough cleaning. He cleans it, but he pays no attention to the floor, so the grout is qui...
