* I read an article in the newspaper a few weeks back about the Little Free Library. The Little Free Library is basically a wooden box with perhaps a shelf for two rows of book. Anyone can walk by and borrow a book. The can either return it when finished or bring a different book to the box for someone else to read. How cool is that?
Of course I checked right away to see if there was one in my 'hood. There is! The next street over and up three blocks! We walk the dogs in that area, but have never gone down their street because it is a dead end. Now I want to build one and put it in my front yard! It's my new obsession. There are some pretty cool YouTube videos on the Little Free Library website. I think it is very inspiring and is a great way to meet neighbors. Check it out.

What I don't do really well is sew. Another friend helped me make a quilt top for our bed. But she recently had a baby and isn't able to quilt it for me on her machine. The class I signed up for is called Quilting Big Projects on your Small Machine. After I signed up I had a moment of panic. My sewing machine is a 1948 Singer. Could it do what I need it to do? I did some research on the internet and after some email correspondence with a vintage sewing machine man I found I can order the sewing feet I need and I'm good to go!
* After five days of severe thunderstorms in the Denver Metro area last week I think it is finally safe to finish planting the garden. I might get to it this weekend!
