It was back to reality (to a degree) on Tuesday. The very best part of my week is that my granddaughter, Emily, is staying with me until I take her home to Virginia on New Year's day. She went to work with me on Tuesday, did all my filing and then hung out with a co-worker's son. They had a Harry Potter movie marathon in our conference room, played cards and generally enjoyed each other's company. Good thing because they are spending the day together at my office again today!
This was Emily's BIG Christmas gift
She has been coveting mine for about 2 years. She loves this machine with all the little bells and whistles. She also received lots of sewing "goodies" and several gift cards for Joann's and a gift card to spend at Burkholder's Fabric. Guess where we are going on Saturday! The machine is out of the box but we have not had time or opportunity to set it up. I don't think Emily ever threaded mine or ran a bobbin. We will be practicing those things so that she will be able to use her machine at home without Grammy standing by.
I always enjoy the 12 days of Christmas and it makes me sad to see so many trees on the curb the day after Christmas. I love this time of calm and reflection. I hope you are enjoying your time as well.
