Oh my gosh! Two days in a row! :) That's a good start to the Fall Season.

Last Saturday Ronnie and I took about an 8 hour road trip. We went East on I40 towards Oklahoma City, looking for a Mall that we had stopped at a couple years ago. Unfortunately, we did not find it; I guess it was further than we thought! We drove about 30 miles past where I thought it was, then turned around and headed back. Went to Henryetta and stopped at a WalMart - I was looking for a certain sewing machine. Nothing. So we continued on using state highways as opposed to the Interstate.

This is my new sewing machine, which I finally found in a WalMart store in Okmulgee, OK. My plan is to learn to quilt things like place mats, table runners, pot holders, luncheon cloths, etc., so I thought I should have a sewing machine to make the things to quilt! Now I just have to learn to sew and quilt! :) So far its not going so well, but I'm going to go to a quilt shop and get some help!

We also found a Payless Shoe store in Okmulgee where I was able to get a new pair of mule tennis shoes I'd been wanting. They are not exactly what I had in mind, but will do. Then on through the beautiful countryside to Muskogee and the Golden Corral for supper. Then a stop at our friends house to pick up some embroidery hoops and a chicken table runner that some of you would love! and a short visit; then home. The plan is to make a chicken runner using hers as a pattern. Will keep you posted on that! :)

All in all, it was a great day - after the fussing about where the Mall was! Hope you all had a good day. I am so thankful for what God has provided for me in my later years.

Until next time, take care and be safe.

Girl you did great on your sewing machine. I've been collecting/gatheing my sewing supplies to see what I have. I found a treasure I had forgot about. I haven't sewn in so long, I'm having a blast getting back into it. You will do good. half the trip is the Want To! You'll find help.
