This beautiful park is only minutes away from their home. On a good day one can walk to it.
This is an old postcard I found on-line when the park was young...1904
And this could be a postcard from this past week-end's festival.
That's Ella. And a cherry tree. With blossoms.
A canopy of cherry blossoms...as far as the eye can see...
And here is Ella, her very first festival and now, her 4th...with wonder and amazement that we all have in the beauty of spring...
I have my sewing machine on a shelf next to my printer. I've had the sewing machine for a few years and have only used in a very few times, and that is in the very recent past.
Why you ask? Well, maybe you didn't but here's why anyway...
I apparently opened the box when I first got it and promptly lost the foot pedal and cord.
For over 2 years I searched. Finally gave up and decided that I needed to see if it could be replaced.
Well, wouldn't you know it, by the time I looked into it, it was out of date. Out of stock. Non-replaceable. Kaput. Zilch. Nada. Nope.
But, the repairman took pity and I think he may have gotten a laugh when I told him I had never, I mean nev-er, used the brand new machine, and found one that could serve the purpose.
I was now a sewer. Yeah..no...wait..is that sewer, like with rats and water??
Ewwwe no! I meant a SEW-er..
So, I took an old pattern and used it as wallpaper, sprayed adhesive on the back and pressed down this little collage - the shelf it sits on just seemed so ....white...before.
Oh yeah. Guess what cleaning up my art room brought me? Yep. My foot pedal and cord.
Found it just where I put it to be safe....BWAAAAHAHAAAAA!
