Feeling BLAH

I dove in and cleaned up my work area yesterday after my post
I am going to have to break down and either get a new machine,
or pull one of the few I have on the floor out and see if I can get it working
mine is giving me fits, it still sews but it sure is aggrevating
I should own stock in a sewing machine company :)
And I just noticed how dirty the outside of my machine is LOL
I oil and keep the inside of it in great shape
This sewing machine was given to me by my Mother in Law
we had it repaired and the guy told me something was broke on it, that it would still work but the part could not be replaced
seems I recall him saying it may not work for along time

It has serviced my needs for two years so I am very happy with it And I think of my Mother in Law every time I take a seat in front of it
I Miss her so much

I Even organized my mess on top of the fridge

I know I am like many when I say I work and work until I just 
can not handle the mess anymore and I have to rearrange
Make it all tidy (so I can mess it back up again)

I recently got a few boxes of Goodies I purchased from a Friend And inspiration kicked in, funny how some new trims and fabrics will do that to you
The two pieces of Fabric on my table top came from those boxes, I use fabric so I can change it out now and then for a fresh look And then I laundry it and it goes in my stash 

Ok maybe I should get stock in the foil pans you see here :) I keep my orders straight by using a foil pan for each order

I have Not been feeling well, 
I actually just had not shared that I have not been feeling
well for awhile. One thing then another, Everything is ok though

Oh the stress of unknown things, being unsure of what is going on that alone can make one sick! Suppose I am Ungracefully Aging *sigh* Body parts seem to be doing new and different things with me 
~ a bit of humor thrown in there~

Had to take Miss Rango and Shelby in for their shots this morning did not think I was going to survive, started feeling yucky while I was there. I sure hope I do NOT have a bug of some kind, I Hate getting sick! And Flu season is probably going to be wild this year

October is not an easy month for me nor is November
Wishing my Grandson a Happy Birthday today, I have not seen him in a few years, life sometimes is just not fair

Today is also my Daughter in Laws Birthday
They may be down next week, I hope so

So I will close sharing a recent Picture of Sweet Lilly

And a Picture of Lilly's Daddy when he was a Little Boy
With My Dad

My dear sweet Dads birthday would of been this month as well
I miss him so!

Have a wonderful day


  1. Hope your felling better Brenda, I often gets the blahs. Love the cute Lilly picture, adorable.Hugs Francine.

  2. Oh Brenda, sorry for the blahs...when the body & heart are down at the same time it makes it extra hard. Hope you are feeling better soon & don't have a bug. Your dad was a handsome man, as well as your "little" guy! ~*~Lisa

  3. Brenda, sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I hope you feel better very soon.

  4. I think the holidays are the hardest, it reminds us of things we lost and family that is far away, so just I just go with the flow and wait till it passes. Usually I do holiday things, this year, I won't be doing as much but I do want to make gifts. There is something going around, seems a lot of us are getting sick, I took D3 and it seems to have knocked it out, still feel yucky but more energy, though I am not sure if that is a good thing, lol.

    I hope you feel better soon

  5. Brenda - Sorry you are not feeling well. Hope it's nothing serious. Sometimes we just get tired and I find the older I get, the more that happens. LOL Your workroom looks so neat and organized. I would almost hate to mess it up.


  6. Birthdays and holidays are certainly the hardest to wear a smile when inside your aching. We all go through this because it is part of life. We certainly do not have to like it either. Wish I lived closer to you, I would give you the biggest hug my friend and hopefully put a smile on your face? Or we could share some tears together? You are a super special lady and don't you ever forget it!

  7. So sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. I certainly understand the aches and pains thing! And, yes it is hard being away from our Grandlittles can be difficult for us loving Grandparents. You do beautiful crafting and always
    make us smile with your funny posts. Take care of you.. Hope you get to feeling better.

  8. I have to say a prayer each time I get my machine moving, LOL! Never know when it's going to quit on me! I hope
    you get to feeling better, Brenda!


I really do enjoy your comments
Thank you so much
