I cannot believe that so much time has elapsed since my last post! I was really ill with a horrible sinus infection for the entire month of January and am still trying to get my steam back to full speed. I have purchased some beautiful cloth for some items that I am making for my two granddaughters. A recent trip to my Husqvarna Viking dealer resulted in buying a nice table extension for my Designer SE and a couple more specialty feet. Now, I need to get to work and sew! I really have not broken in the Designer SE as that my time was spent on taking care of my father 24/7 for 20 months, and then becoming caretaker of my spouse who is in early stage of a form of dementia, plus handling the responsibilities as a personal representative for my father's estate during the last 11 months. My spouse is fairly functional, but I have to keep an eye on him just the same. However, I am making the most of time that I can find for myself.
