the traveler returns

I am finally back home after what feels like my tour of the eastern U.S. Before Thanksgiving I was in Myrtle Beach, Thanksgiving was spent in Pensacola, Florida. Just after Thanksgiving I went to New York City for a few days, followed by a few days in Washington D.C. where I saw the first snow of the year.
This past weekend I ventured back to the south to play with the Knoxville Wind Symphony in Tennessee. There I met up with old friends and got to play a holiday concert (which also reimbursed me for all of the traveling I have been doing - whew).

I had decided that I would spend today at home, working on Christmas gifts like the Santa's elf I am becoming! Everything was rolling right along: itunes pumping out some tunes to keep me happy, sewing machine speeding over the fabric, iron steaming up a storm; things were looking good until....

SNAP!!!

Well, there's not much I can do with a needle that looks like this: and my expert sewing helper is not home, so I guess it's time to move on to something else for the afternoon....

WERE YOU SEWING SO FAST THAT YOUR NEEDLE COULDN'T KEEP UP.

GAL YOU HAVE TO SLOW DOWN.

SOMETIMES THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TEND TO PULL THE MATERIAL- RATHER THAN LET THE MACHINE DO THE FEEDING. WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE- I AM SURE IT DELAYED YOUR PROGRESS.
