Kelly they are so cute.  The only thing I have done recently is put a Mighty Mouse on a scrub for DH.  I have so many ideas but have not had the time.  I just finished one course I was taking and decided to wait until I am caught up on stuff before taking another course, then continuing ed came out with an ASL course so of course I had to register, last night was first night and I am amazed at how much I remember.

ROFLOL. Kelley that's funny. When I was much younger our neighbour's dog ran out and bit my cousin in the face as we walked home from school. Since that day I've been afraid of dogs no matter the size. If they're running at me it's all over. I'm trying to get over it but they still make me mighty nervous.

Thanks Kelley. I'm not sure how he feels about dogs now. I haven't talked to him in a long time.

Kelley I would come use your machines too but I am afraid of kids LOL.  Actually your goldens look beautiful.  I have black lab crosses and the male is like that, scared of his own shaddow.  The female is smart as a whip and keeps him in line.

Kris, I had a similar experience with dogs as a kid and I always told my kids never to put their faces up to a dogs even though they loved to hug them.  To this day I do not trust any dog even my own not to bite.  Before these dogs I had a Jack Russell and as he got older he got snappy.  He got out of the yard and bit my neighbour on the leg, he was put down after his quarentine period.  She was upset we had him put down but we told her that a nip that broke her skin could have been on her grandbabies and we could not allow that.  I love my dogs dearly and we had all kinds of training for this Jack spent I can't tell you how much to get him to stop nipping but some dogs you just can't trust and it is not fair to them or the community to have them either penned up all the time or running loose.  I have a thing about people who trust their dogs to walk without a leash or be on their property without a leash.  Yes dogs sometimes get loose but our neighbours never leash their dog and it drives me nuts to see it running around.  Sorry for the rant.

I have the combo sewing/embroidery/quilting machine which is my treasure. that's my Ellie. I love to sew on her. I have 5 other machines that I could piece on (the Featherweight is great for piecing) and I have a couple of other machines that I could quilt on but I want to sew on Ellie. I've been sort of looking and drooling and debating at just a quilting machine and telling myself that I don't need it. I could use that and have Ellie doing embroidery but then I'd miss Ellie. Or I could go with a less expensive Babylock embroidery machine that I could use the same software for but then all the money I spent on Ellie is a waste. Sooooo that's my dilemma. And oh, I have no money to do any of the above!

Diane,

Are you still doing the monthly embroidery project? Sounds like fun and very inspirational.
