This is Lorraine! She came in dressed like this after my Mr Potato Head post YESTERDAY! LOL!
I loved it! Life is too short to be so serious all the time, and being just a bit silly is most welcome ---
Teaching classes sometimes has me face to face and seam to seam with some pretty up-tight quilters who are comfortable in their own pursuit of the highest level of perfection, and then I find myself getting uptight--worried that my classes aren’t good enough, results are not satisfactory enough for the level everyone is expecting of themselves --
And then in comes Lorraine who reminds us that life is about sometimes lightening up a bit before we snap from perfection overload….
This is beautiful Lorraine without the Mr Potato Head Getup!
This sweet machine is the machine that Lorraine learned to sew on at age 4, it belonged to her grandmother. How special is that??! I wonder if she got her sense of humor from her grandmother too? It wouldn’t surprise me.
We had an awesome day ---and there were more vintage machines with us!
This is Bonnie T’s Singer 185J, named SHREK!
((With good reason, it’s very….green!))
This is Bonnie’s sister Barbara’s 128 Blackside!
We also had several featherweights in the house just stitching away with their own little distinctive featherweight voices.

This morning is the monthly guild meeting and my lecture and trunk show. I've brought quilts from the NEW BOOK! So excited to share them with everyone.
Afterwards, we are in for a half-day Boxy Star class and I know that is going to be a ton of fun.
The adventure continues in Williamsburg, Virginia!
If you are in for some Yard Sale Saturday, head on over to Colorado Lady's blog where she is hosting today! It might just be the opportunity for the perfect arm chair shopping for you!
I've hosted in the past, but life is just way too out of control for me to do that right now, I'm not home on a Saturday very often --and I've had to pass the torch on to someone else who wants to carry on the tradition -- go check it out!
