A quick trip

We made a last minute decision to travel to Charlotte, NC this past week to get my sewing machine serviced. I bought my Pfaff ambition 1.0 from the Charlotte Sewing Center and had been taking her in every year for an annual cleaning & service. When we moved to Myrtle Beach I struggled to find an authorized service center in my area. My options were to travel to either Charleston, SC or Wilmington, NC but both places required me to leave the machine for 2 weeks… not very convenient.

Hubby suggested I call the Charlotte location and ask how quickly they could complete the cleaning and to my surprise, they said they could do it in one day!!! So, we drove up on Tuesday and dropped off my machine then spent the rest of the day visiting with some of our old neighbors. I picked up my machine the next morning and after visiting with a few more friends we headed back home. It was a quick trip but now my Pfaff is all cleaned and ready for another year of sewing & quilting!! šŸ˜€

Unfortunately that’s where the sewing update ends because I haven’t been in my sewing room since we got back – ugh! I seem to be stumped as to what quilting design I want to use on my Sugar Blocks quilt so now I’m procrastinating šŸ˜¦

I would love some suggestions before I just default to an all-over meander :-/


I washed down the screened porch on Friday to remove the latest layer of pollen and we had our first meal outside last night… simple burgers on the grill. It was a perfectly warm day with a breeze… so nice!!!


I’ve been watching a lot of tennis this week with several tournaments going on at the same time. Carlos Alcaraz continues to dazzle at the Barcelona Open and Iga Swiatek is proving to be a dominant women’s #1 player! Djokovic is being put through the wringer at the Serbia Open (his home country) and is currently a set down in the finals, however he’s won all his matches this week being a set down so I’m not counting him out just yet!


That’s about all for now… have a great rest of your weekend!
