Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Michelle. I have S.M.A.D. (Sewing Machine Addiction Disorder), but it's a disorder I do NOT want a cure for! I LOVE finding vintage sewing machines, but the HIGH comes from making them sing, just like new again. Some can barely move when I bring them home, and are quite sad, but after a few hours, are happy again. It has become an obsession of mine. I get lots of encouragement from my husband, the enabler. I love the old antique and vintage machines, as they were built to last, with all metal workings. Some have asked me what I do with them all. Well, I keep them, but most recently, I have been collecting for The Sewing Machine Project! Check out the link associated with the picture on my sidebar. I rarely sew on them afterwards, as I have a very nice Janome 6600 machine as my main machine, but I know that they work, and if I WANT to, I can sew on them. They are sew pretty to look at, and I display them throughout my home, so they are pleasing to the eye.
I am also a quilter, but more of a 'cold weather quilter'. I am blessed with a group of wonderful friends who meet in my home once a month from September through May, and we have such a good time learning from each other, sharing joys and concerns, and making our own beautiful quilts together. (Check my archives on any September-May, and hopefully you will find some quilting posts.) =-)
My husband Louie, who this blog is named after, is the love of my life, and hand picked especially for me, by God Himself. We have been married for 37 years. He is my best friend, and I thank God for him every day. We love spending time together, which is mostly on the weekends, as we both work full time. We love junkin’ (our name for thrift store shopping) together all year long, and we love riding our Goldwing in the months that weather permits. Spending time with friends is an added bonus.
We love the Lord, and know that everything comes from Him, and that nothing is impossible with Him by ours sides.
Enjoy your visit, and please leave me a comment. I'll send you one back!
