I’m late writing my post today and joining my friends over at LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Color who write about things they like that bring them joy.
I was up before it was daylight and on the road to do some errands.
First up on the list was to stop at the dump to drop off our garbage. I really like the attendant there. She always has some fun conversation. Today she started things with a compliment for me! She said she liked what I’ve done with my hair. Last week I had become tired of it getting in my eyes and took the scissors to it. Now you can really see my grey wings and they actually are a pretty silver 😉. From there the conversation went on to the students at the college who are taking their hairstylists course and that I should try them next time I have a couple of hours to relax and get my hair washed. It was fun for a while to just be normal visiting an acquaintance.
From there I headed to do a drop off at the Red Cross Equipment Depot to return the walker we had borrowed for DH’s knee surgery. Another pleasant visit with the lady there who has been a volunteer for 37 years. I left with a form to register as a volunteer. I do like to help my community!
My next stop was here:
I love this shop! It is Allan’s Sewing Machine in Trail, BC. He is not only my favourite, most reliable honest repair technician, he is the owner of a gold star Janome dealership. I can always find some fabric or notions to spoil myself with in his shop. Today, however, I was on a mission. I finished paying for and arranging delivery of my new
toy tool which I am in love with;
While I was in the shop I was astounded to see that he only had two machines left, the Continental M7 and the Horizon Quilt Maker Memorycraft 15000. The sewing machines and sergers are all sold! I love knowing that in these crazy times, more people are learning to sew or share in a craft that I am so addicted to.
I like being able to resist temptation and stick with my goal of sewing from the stash. I did however pick up a flannel backing for one of my commission projects. It was requested that the winter duvet cover have a flannel, cozy backing. Backings don’t count as adding to the stash when it was in today and going out this evening, right😉
I really like being part of the Board of Directors for our local Guild.
Our Guild owns this sweet little one room schoolhouse. We do have fun providing meeting space and classes for our membership. I enjoy being able to host classes here and have really enjoyed learning other crafts; felting, basket weaving, spinning, natural dyes to name a few. With the numbers spiking here in our Province,
I am expecting lockdown orders to be mandated soon the lockdown was instituted late this afternoon just after I got home. All classes and our fundraiser are cancelled until at least December 7.
I love this child;
Thanks for stopping by to read my list of likes today. I do enjoy sharing the things that bring me happiness! Do stop over to LeeAnna’s post to see our friend’s I Like/Love Lists. It’s guaranteed to make you smile! I’m also linking with Knit By God’s Hand who just joined us on LeeAnna’s blog. 😄 Carol
