Brrrrrrrr it's cold here again??

Got spoiled by the 80 plus weather. Azaleas are starting to bloom, but it's been raining & cold, uggggggg!! Have had a fire going since last night & it's toasty in the family room!! I made a meatloaf too! Kept the kitchen toasty too! Plus it was yummy!!

I've seen a few people in blogger world doing straight line quilting.
So I impressed myself today. By learning how to straight line quilt on a regular sewing machine & a 1/4 inch foot!! This is my test runner made from leftover blocks!

Long time no see!! First I want to thank y'all for the comments on sticking with the counseling! I did make it to all but one, didn't think I could handle that one!
Second I quit my crazy job!!! The manager kept throwing me on the emotional train tracks. Than wrote me up for acting depressed???
So I started working at a full service salon 3 days a week, only it's not bring in enough money, so I need to find other ways to bring in some money!

I did survive my DH's birthday! He would have been 50 on March 3rd. I'm trying to plan something to do on April 7th, our wedding anniversary :(

So anyway on Monday my Mom & little brother came over. They brought Hardee's chicken tenders, yummy! My brother had some errands to do, Mom & I cut & pressed 12 wallets while he was gone! When he got back we made plans for him to come back Tuesday. He did come & fixed a few things for me. He's coming back today to hook up a ceiling fan in the back bedroom. He needs to go in the attic to see if there's a support up there!
One the sewing front, all my machines are having tension issues?? I think someone messed with them. I don't see how they could be messed up all at the same time?? They all worked right last time I used them! I about pulled all my hair out!! LOL finally got out the manual for the Pfaff & got that one working right. Than I pulled up the manual for the featherweight online. But so far I haven't got it sewing right :( hope to get it right today!
Off to get this day started!!
Hope y'all make it a great day!
