Around here

Around here, the deck chairs are still set up from the Independence Day cookout.

Around here, I made a big pot of pasta and green bean salad dressed with garlic and lemon and pepper.

And around here I left the dressing off of a big portion for Mimi.

Around here the cat is grateful for whatever peace and quiet she can get.

Around here I am enjoying my new sewing machine. I made another Oh Suzanna smock.

I was fussier about ironing the seams and I added a ribbon detail.

Around here, every now and then the little girl falls asleep at naptime and has an awful time waking up. Poor little poopsie.

  1. Your pasta salad looks delicious… perfect meal for a summer evening! The smock for Mimi is so sweet! The fabric is gorgeous and the ribbon trim really completes it! I plan to take a “beginners” sewing class this fall. I do not sew, but I really want to learn. What brand would you recommend I start with for an “inexpensive” sewing machine? I’ll probably try to find a used one.

  2. I advise against Singer and Brother sewing machines. Singers are notoriously unreliable and my cheap Brother serger is really clunky and no fun to use. I’d go for a Janome. Some of them are in the couple-hundred dollar range. Of course, the more you spend, the nicer it will be to use.
