I'm gonna try take a bit of a break....

Not leaving entirely....

I'm still gonna go give that Serenade a full test drive for a traveler... (thanks for all the help with that - especially Butter Bean!) ... and I'm still going to try to complete a project or two a month....

... and I still like putzing around my machines as "meditative" time...

...and it's still fun to pat the machines when I walk by....

But I'm going to let my sewing take a back burner for the most part for the next few months...

So with free time at a premium, I've decided to spend a little more time at the gun range and get certified as an NRA instructor. I've been a cheerleader for women to go get training and not be duped into being fearful of things (especially AR15's) just because they have seen too much stupid stuff on TV and haven't had the chance to understand what they really are.

I'm impressed with how many of the women I know already own guns (it was a pleasant shocker!) and after sending a few dozen women to learn from others, I think it's time I step up and have some fun and make a difference in that arena.

Just refocusing for a while.... and then fishing season starts....

Good for you. I think you would make an excellent instructor for these type of guns.

You have had a lot on your plate with moving and so forth, so you deserve some time off from sewing. Keep us posted.

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

Good luck with all you want to do, and please remember to post about machines once in awhile. My fav part of sewing *IS* machines. :)

Heh heh... you saw that ridiculous video, I assume?!?!?

What a joke, eh?

(For those that haven't seen it... Homeland Security has a YouTube video out on how to defend yourself until help arrives in an office situation if a shooter is present... it's laughable.)

You should get a Singer made 1911 Army pistol. Best of both hobbies rolled into one! (A bit expensive, though.)

A sewing machine is just a welder for textiles.
