My sweet son's finace has been thinking about bow ties for their upcoming wedding. Of couse that got me thinking too! SO I saw this blog post from Sew Like My Mom and besides being an excellent Blog name-she had a free pattern.
and sewedand used my pinking shears to trim away the seam allowance and clip the curves and points.

SO I was happily doing a load of laundry when I heard a lack of sound from my happy little laundry area. Never a good thing when things get too quiet. And there is was, no tumbling dyer.SO I did a quick search on you tube and gee, it's not too hard to dis assemble a dryer-look I just unscrewed the two screws on the lint trap opening, then pulled forward and up to lift the top up.
This Video on You Tube had the kind I have so I could get the belt on right.

So, when you get a new car and trade in your old car, you have to clear out the stuff from the trade in car. Now, I know I have some stuff in my trunk, but I didn't quite realize how much there was!

So, it's about time I went car shopping. I know, I know, the G6 is such a great car. But it's 11 years old and it's time. I made my chart and started on line shopping. I had 5 cars on my list and got it down to the Chevy Trax, the Buick Encore, the Ford Escape and the Jeep Renegade. I was stalked by salesmen and test drove like crazy. The ford just lost me on the bottom line price-over my budget, so on to the Chevy & the Buick-which are really the same-just the Buick is more fancy-I LOVE fancy! But it is just a tiny little 1.4L motor and just didn't have the power I wanted to merge aggressively on the interstate. So on to the Jepp, I've never even looked at Jeeps before, but I really liked what I saw! SO look at this.....yes, that is the control for heated seats and heated steering wheel and the passenger can control their temperature too.
