Sewing with Scrabble!

How was your holiday?

We had a wonderful time at the lake house. Mark, Mom, my sisters, and my husband and I all cooked and slept and ate. With all that exhausting work, you’d think there would have been no time for sewing, but we’re just kinda superheroes that way. I got the binding on a quilt and Mom and I designed a quick baby quilt, too. Rebecca worked on a project — she’s going to be nipped by the bug for sure — and everyone felt deeply happy to hear the hum of the sewing machine on the back porch.

Even the dog.

Here’s a picture of me and Scrabble, Mark and Mom’s miniature Golden Doodle. At seven months, she’s still a puppy and very much a true love of mine. (Don’t worry, I didn’t let her get too far with the binding. She’s not ready.)


Watch that little paw, Scrabble-do!
