Today I am grateful for spoiling myself!

Yes, I spoiled myself today…

Did something badass!

For me!

My last sewing machine was purchased in 1986.

Yes, it still works, but it doesn’t do everything I want to do…

So I took the plunge today.

I bought a new machine.

A Cadillac of machines.

Not only one for me, but also a buy-one-get- one deal that will make a dear one very happy! I can’t wait to gift it!

I am ecstatic — over the moon!


I learned to sew on my grandmother’s treadle singer sewing machine making aprons. Later, she helped me sew 4-H projects, clothing, and I helped her sew quilts. I cherish the memories.

I have always loved the process of creating, cutting, color, picking patterns and fabrics, quilting,

tearing things apart and putting them back together.

When I cannot find what I want in a store, I just make it —

like my red wedding dress!

I love to sew, unless I have a deadline…


I have always thought of everyone else first. Their needs and wants before mine.

But not today.

I spoiled myself

and I am glad!

Excuse me, I need to go play!

XO Lisa ❤️
