While in Virginia, I made some new simple curtains for the bathroom. I was there with all of my sewing stuff in tow, so it was the right time to do it. I had taken two sewing machines for the “Straits of Mackinac” class. The one pictured on the Quiltville blog was my Emilie, a black 1954 Singer 301a. That girl has quite a history, but I will save that for another day. My husband was pretty adamant that if I was driving that far for a class that required a sewing machine, a back up was necessary. The one I chose is a very compact 1960’s Kenmore 1040, so it didn’t take up much room at all. This machine has a nice zig-zag, unlike the Singer 301, so it is the one I chose to use for the curtains.
It was definitely winter in Ohio when I left last week. Virginia was so nice while it lasted! Some flowers were starting to bloom and the temperatures and skies cried out “spring!”.
I got on the road yesterday morning, truly feeling as if spring had arrived, and drove in a very light rain off and on the whole way. The zig-zag portion through country roads in the mountains were foggy, but thankfully never to the point that it felt dangerous. I had to get a picture of this sign on the side of a gas station! It was just so typical for the mountain area I was in!
I got back home to Ohio after dark last night, and this is what I woke up to this morning. There is ice under that snow.
We returned the rental car and I just had to take these ice pictures on the way home. The signs were so interesting with the ice/snow slipping off of them! It looked like the thin foam sheets that glassware comes packed in.

Now to get all of the sewing supplies put away, and the book work and orders taken care of so I can play with my quilts! I hope you find something good to create today!
