The weekend has gone by and it is a new week.  Miss Molly has had visitors for the last two weekends.  Her cousins have come to visit.  Two weekends ago, three dogs visited.  Two were Schnauzers and one a Labradoodle. IMG_1130

This past weekend, a Bagel (Basset Hound/Beagle visited.

The Labradoodle and the Bagel took Miss Molly’s spot on the couch.  She was not really happy, but let them do it. IMG_1479IMG_1133


After the Bagel left, Miss Molly climbed on her spot on the couch and slept for four hours.  It’s tiring when you entertain.  Of course, the Bagel came with my grandson who is one of Miss Molly’s favorite people.  He and Miss Molly ran around the house and played. IMG_1480




I have a glass by my sewing machine that has a lot of tools that I use when I’m sewing.  IMG_1481



There are pens and pencils in the glass.  One is a regular pencil,  The pink one is a water soluble disappearing ink pencil. When I used it this summer, it was so humid that the ink disappeared before I could sew.  I will try it again in the winter when it is dry. I like the blue disappearing ink pens.


IMG_1483  I have several scissors,  the little pink one and the one with the pink ribbon have curved blades so I can cut close to an embroidery or the end of a seam.  The gray one with the purple ribbon is a paper scissor.  I paid $10.00 for it and it was a great buy.  When I have it sharpened, I have to be careful not to cut myself. I don’t use the little rotary cutter very much, but keep it in the glass so that I won’t loose it.

IMG_1484I use the little screwdriver to tighten presser feet and the needle.  Also to loosen the plate.  The tweezers are handy for getting things out of tight spaces.  The wooden iron is used to press seams so that I don’t have to keep getting up to use a regular iron.

IMG_1485  The little screwdriver is handy when the other one is too tall to fit into a space.  The pencil sharpener was always lost until I left it in the glass. The chalk is used for marking,  The flash drive has my embroideries on it.   When it is in the glass, I don’t have to look for it.

Other tools are close by in bins and boxes but these are the ones that I use the most.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
