Oh NO! I bought more stuff

The yarn I like at JoAnn was the cheapest I have ever seen it. Then I had to have $50 worth of stuff in order to get free shipping. Thread was also the cheapest I have ever seen it. I have stuff in my cart at Amazon. I hope that it can just stay there until 2/10. I try to order just once a month from Amazon. That way I must think about it for awhile.

I messed up

I messed up the front of the special order pet carrier. I am going to have to cut out a new piece and do it again. My new sewing machines has lots of special stitches, some work better than others. The one I used was not so good. I tried it out first and it looked good. It’s OK I found another that works well. Trouble is with cleaning up Lauren’s room going on at the same time life is busy.
