Shoot Me! 1 of 52 Challenge

I think it's a great idea to do this challenge - To post every Thursday a picture with myself in it for 52 weeks.  It may end up that I'll have to TAKE my own picture!   Hopefully not, but usually I'm the one taking pictures, so not in a lot of family gathering pictures.  Especially years ago.  Now our BIG girls all are camera bugs, so I'm in a few more.   Carin over at  Forever In Blue Jeans posted this challenge.  It'll be a challenge for me!  But here we go.

Hooch and I working on a photo project to make a book for baby Renee with pictures of her "Minnesota Family".  It was one thing I didn't get done before Christmas due to computer printer problems.  Now with that working better and a good serger, I should be able to get this done!  More pictures as progress goes.
Have also started other projects now that the kids are all gone.  One was to finish up some baby blankets that had been left undone when my serger decided to take a vacation.   I don't know what happened to it (a few months ago); but the stitches came out so badly I couldn't use the serger.  Finally had taken it to a repair man in Fargo ND, and it now works wonderfully.  I finished 6 blankets in short order the other day.  Don't know if this will help me, but I took a picture of the setting of the dials, so if my stitches become messed up again, I'll hopefully be able to get the thread tensions back to these settings.    It'll be worth a try!  It's so nice to have it back in working order.  I really needed to have repaired it earlier.

The picture looks kind of dark, but when I zoom in, I can see the dials good. I have some new projects coming up that will need to change color of threads, so that should be interesting!  

Last evening we were invited to Far Side's for supper!  How nice it was.  Had home made pizza (yummy) and played cards.  A nice evening with good friends.  Hooch went with to play, or should I say, give Chance a hard time!  Hooch even found a lost ball for Chance.
