Whew! It's been a long and interesting day.
This morning I hoped to work on the sewing machine. The tension is messed up. I got the stitch length where I want it for the quilt. But, when I tried to get the upper tension fixed, a 'screw' and part of the tension plate fell off! The 'screw' will not go back in. It's not really a screw, but not sure what else to call it. Some kind of bolt thingie! Ha! I may have to take it in for service ... :( I need to check in with the vintage sewing machine group I am in. Someone there might have some ideas on how to put it back together. I may mess with it more tomorrow ...

|She had to call him back from his flight as he nearly had a 'run-in' with a local wild Peregrine Falcon! He was upset and kept ruffling his feathers.|
|She gave him a few treats to calm him down.|
|Sneakers do not work here.|

|This guy was hilarious in the parade. Playing tipsy.|
|Last picture before my camera's battery died! Right before the Scottish animals!! There were Scottish dog breeds, sheep and Clydesdales. They didn't have any Highland or Dexter cattle this year.|
Well, crap! I had to re-boot my browser and my damn blog deleted all the picture captions that I wrote HOURS ago. Why weren't they saved automatically like they always have on past blogs that were 'in progress'!? Ugh. Don't remember half the stuff I wrote, so just a few are captioned now.
