The Most Wonderful Time of Year

...when your sewing machine hiccups and needs to visit the tech for some TLC and you get behind in your sewing and suddenly Christmas is ONLY five days away and you've only wrapped two presents and you still need to find a couple small things for gift bags...


The Empress is going on hiatus for a bit and would like to share with you a photo of my nativity set as arranged by my granddaughter Chloe, who is in Kindergarten.




And, because I'm a nerd...

  5. Thru the eyes of a child....precious.
    I do believe you have a treatable condition, lackamachineitis. A preventable disease which can be reduced and prevented by the presence a featherweight. Very handy to keep around :D Hope the machine is back to you soon safe and sound.
