I recently came across a cherished item my Dad gave me (it was carefully stored away for safe keeping). In 1953, at Abbeville, La.

Over the weekend, I had an amazing shopping experience with the guys at Stag in Austin, Texas. The store was incredible, and the service was impeccable. Inspiration was everywhere, but I was on a mission for some rigid 501's, which was no problem at all to find. Thanks Ted, for such great service!!

I've been musing on what my dream home would look like. Well, I have drawn the interior (above photo), and the exterior would look similar to the photo below. All I need is some land in the country and agreement from my wife to live in a quanset-style home. I think the land will be no problem!
...a couple of pillow covers ready for their down inserts. I decided to construct the pillow covers by hand, because it just seemed the right way to do it--not to mention, I could not figure out how to use the serger. The stitching (chain stitch, of course) was very meditative, and once I got it started, it did not take long at all. Only 6 more to go...
