  3. Glenna in TX says:

    I just finished listening to your interview with your mom and really enjoyed it. I love all the pictures of your childhood too, especially with you and your mom explaining about each one. Looking forward to interview #3. 🙂

  4. It was so nice to hear about all the food 🙂

    My sister was stationed as a Nurse at the Panama City AFB in the early 90’s; I will ask if she remembers the restaurant.

    All the best.

  5. Baby pictures are adorable! I loved the interview with your Mom, it gave me an idea to frame and hang some puzzles I have. I have an idea about the bobbin cover. Can you lift up the machine with the air lift and remove the bobbin cover that way? And when you’re done changing you can lower the machine back in the flat position. My other comment is about to get the accurate quarter inch seam on your Mom’s machine. I use painter’s tape on mine. I put a ruler down on the sewing machine bed and adjusted it so the needle is on the quarter inch mark. I put the several layers of blue tape to the edge if the ruler just a hair away from the presser foot. Hope this helps, if not, let me know and I can take photos.

  6. Loved the interview with your mom! Thanks for the recipes 🙂
