Grandma Eleanor has decided that Hobby Lobby is her favorite store now. Every time she comes over to our side of town, she wants to stop in there. I took her by there last week and she wanted to buy some frames for some horse pictures that she has painted recently and wanted to frame. Since those particular frames weren’t on sale that week, I had to talk her out of buying them and told her I would bring her back when they went back on sale so that she could get them for 1/2 off. That finally registered and so we left them til later and went back this week and got them on sale. Saved her $20. I knew she would like that and she did! Check out Eleanor’s little beret that she likes to wear. Isn’t she a sporty little thing?! 🙂
And so we continued to work on the chair this week. Finished up the seat cushion and she started sewing the back portion too and that’s as far as we have gotten. See how cute it’s looking? I’m SO happy to get this project going and finished, so I can mark this one off my list.
So, since we’re traveling, I thought I’d leave you with a little bit more of Grandma Eleanor. I knew ya’ll would get a kick out of her, so I did some more videos for your viewing pleasure. And I got a larger memory card, so I can do longer videos. My little camera does a pretty good job with these. Now, if I can only figure out how to edit them into one video instead of keeping them all separate.
Sit back and enjoy a little more Eleanor. I think you’ll have fun listening to more of her stories, a little about sewing for Mountain Brook ladies back in the day, as well as other sewing and art discussions. This is Eleanor just being Eleanor. She insisted that she wanted to take home the ottoman and work on that at her house while we are gone, so we hauled it over there. That’s fine with me.
Eleanor begins sewing. I tried to get her when she was talking, so the others have more of her actually chatting.

Eleanor Talks about Sewing for Mountain Brook ladies
Eleanor Breaks some threads. We had a little problem with the bobbin thread bunching up and knotting & had to keep stopping and checking on it. And we noticed that some lint kept showing up on the needle too & seemed to mess things up. Any of you sewing girls know what might cause that problem? I also had a little problem filling the bobbin, so I’m wondering if that is what caused the bobbin thread to knot? You can see that Eleanor gets a little dramatic when we have sewing machine issues. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed more from Eleanor, she’s a hoot!
Do you have my blog button?? If you do, keep reading. If you don’t, please feel free to share it on your blog if you enjoy my blog.
My Photobucket crashed yesterday, where I had my blog graphics hosted (I exceeded bandwidth, I suppose because my blog has grown) and I had to move everything to my new website host, so all should be working fine now.
BUT, if you have my Southern Hospitality button loaded on your blog, you may see an error message. I’ve fixed the code, so it’s working now, but you’ll have to reload the NEW code on YOUR blog, please.
Thanks so much!
