Yesterday, I took a whack at the sewing machine Michael gave me for my birthday (I hinted. A lot.). And I managed a simple little project without even needing to call my mom! I call that a major success.
I have a thing for mobiles, so I started with these easy stars, hung from a small piece of driftwood. Also have a thing for driftwood. But you knew that already.
And while I was sewing away, these guys were doing their thing on the bookcase. I love them. They were a gift from my parents when we got engaged, and they just made the journey all the way from Maine this year. Not a scratch on them, hardy guys that they are.
And for Dublin readers, check out this lunchtime concert at the National Concert Hall next Friday at 1pm. It’s only €10 per person and there are still seats left! Michael and I are trying to do some schedule re-arranging so we can make it too. It would be the perfect Christmas-y activity!
