Whew! I’m SEW Much Better!


My Big Fishbowl

After $1,400 ($500 liner, $200 heaters and $700 labor) and a huge upcoming water bill, I’m happy to report…


the Fishies are alive and kickin’!  The Pond Guy showed up yesterday, removed all the fish from the pond (thank goodness I have 4 huge 96 gallon boat coolers…LOL), cleaned out the pond entirely, enlisted the help of 2 neighbors to place the new 200 pound liner in the pond, refilled it with 3,500 gallons of water and finally put the fish back in the pond.  Thanks to everyone for your good vibes!

The good news is we discovered a little BLUE Koi (I’ve been dying for one!!!).  Yippee!

Fabric Rack

Linda of Craft Apple posted this neat Magazine Rack which inspired me to finally use an awesome magazine rack I picked up at HomeGoods last year:


Now to figure out where and how to hang it–it’s pretty heavy!

Off to peruse my fabric “collection” for more fabrics to hang on my rack…

Happy Sewing!
