I ended up hand sewing the patch on. And seriously considered chucking the machine out the door, but that isn't very treehugger of me, now is it?
So, all of you sewing Saipan-er's, where can I get my machine fixed? I looked in the phone book to no avail.
We are having a garage sale on Saturday. I didn't realize how much work garage sales are!!! Cleaning, pricing, organizing. Now I catch myself eyeing the tchotchke's and wondering how much I can get for them. I am a junker at heart.

Mmm, Ube ice cream! Me likey... I think.
DH picked a bunch of Tangerines while we were down at the Ranch last weekend. This is almost 3/4 of a grocery bag, all peeled:
Mmm, fresh Tangerine juice. A bit tart, but refreshing.
Crankypants asked her readers to show their knitting "gear". I am new to knitting and don't have much "gear", so I will show the needle roll that I made last year. I filled it up the rest of the way with knitting needles while we were at home in March/April. I haven't bought a single knitting needle. Mom bought tons of them off of Ebay, she has them in a vase...it really looks kinda cool.
I want to make one for Mom, I have to go through my stash and find 2 coordinating fabrics that she would enjoy though.

Part of our back patio has become a plant hospital. I was digging around in the compost bin and look at the surprise that awaited me:
I had forgotten all about the Rota pineapple that we ate a few months ago. It is now in its own pot with a special spot in the sunlight.
