Back from Mississippi - got in 6:30ish yesterday and am VERY happy to be home. Cha Cha couldn't decide if she was glad to see me or mad at me! Cats ... but I came home from work today with a new mouse toy which Squeaks! I may regret this purchase later tonight. She loves it and has decided she is glad I am back.
Got ahead of myself with the cat toy. There was a lovely box waiting for me at the office. I was almost so excited I couldn't get the box open .... but I finally did! And this new toy 1/4" pressure foot was inside. I tried to think of some reason why I needed to go home early. I couldn't. Also, couldn't for the life of me get a better picture. I'm positive everyone reading this knows what the little gadget looks like. I've not had one before and needed to record the arrival.
While I had the camera out, I remembered promising (way back in July) to show a few pieces of pottery handmade by the MadMad Potter ... also known as Lady Shuttlemaker (she tats - see the inside of the pink serving tray). I absolutely adore these pieces. Indirectly, I was inspired to start this crazy little blog by the MadMad Potter. Go check her work out. She is one of the most creative people I have ever met.
My friend who took care of Cha Cha while I was away dropped by. We had a lovely chat. I managed to mask my hands which were itching to put the 1/4" foot on the sewing machine. It is too late for this evening now - I adored the visit - the new pressure foot can wait till tomorrow evening. Good friends always come first!
