Well, today, I stayed home from work to wait for electricians to show up to repair three broken lights that Jerry had tried over and over to fix but couldn't. I was MAJORLY, PLEASANTLY surprised when two very nice, clean, polite repairmen showed up. The younger one spent most of his time in my sewing room because I decided I wanted ALL the lighting in this room changed. WOW!!!! What a difference.
Anyway, his name was Jonathon. He has a beautiful wife and three adorable daughters named Peyton, Chloe and Rylynn (?). I think that is right. He showed me pics of them on his cell phone. All dark-haired beauties. Found out he and his wife are youth pastors at a small church in the town they live in. They just got back from church camp where they both preached. It was SO, SO, SO refreshing to listen to this Christian daddy talk about his family. He even told me the sermon he preached at camp.
Jonathon, of course, noticed all my sewing machines, and he said his wife Davilynn (?) had purchased a sewing machine, but she never used it. I'm not sure she knows how to sew. He noticed the video I made this morning on my computer monitor and asked me about it. He asked for the name of my blog so his wife might learn about sewing.
I told him that my blog wasn't a very good place to learn about sewing as I jump around from one thing to another -- to another -- to another, and I don't really teach. I gave him the Craftsy.com website for her, and I really hope she will check it out for beginning sewing classes. They have so many wonderful classes and she can watch them right at home. She is a SAHM which I admire greatly.
Anyway, here is the video I made this morning where I groan about the "shame on you" comment I received from a few people. Then I show you how far I've gotten on our friendship swap.
AND, since Margaret has already opened her July 28 birthday present from me, I can show you what I made her now. She really liked it. Margaret was MADE to wear beautiful clothes and jewelry, and it thrills me that she wears what I make for her.
And for those of you -- which may be ALL of you -- who couldn't see my parking lot haircut by Princess Di, here is a photo:
Jerry is downstairs trying to heat up leftover roast and potatoes. I need to go assist.
Be back soon.
