My dear MIL made it home safe to Iowa. Easy trip, no complications.
On the way home, driving from Anchorage, we saw the northern lights. We stopped and looked, and they were from one side of the sky to the other. They even turned the moutain into a silhouette. We watched in amazement for at least 20 minutes.
I made some maple leaf blocks today for a church project. I was happily sewing along and pressed and started sewing again. All of a sudden I realized, the previous sewn seams were gone! What??!! I was totally confused, checked for bobbin thread, checked the top thread. Yep, the threads were in the machine. Then I noticed that my iron had been turned up and as I was using polyester thread, it had melted! Poof! Gone. I have never had that happen before. So I changed thread, turned down the iron and re-pieced the pieces. What a day!
