A broken sewing machine...

means that I focus my energy on other projects around the house that need to get done. Zoe and I usually plant flowers in our front yard at the start of summer. My DH got tired of pulling out weeds (which i don't do) and suggested that we plant miniature boxwoods and add rocks to prevent the weeds from growing. Brilliant man! As you can see it turned out gorgeous.

We took a trip to the nursery to select our boxwoods.

Those boxwoods and rocks are gorgeous! Is it too late for me to plant some at my house? You think??? I'm not a green thumb so I never know what season you should be planting what. I just listen to whatever hubby says and he does "yard work" more than I do ;)

Sorry to hear about the sewing machine! Are you looking to replace it soon? I keep debating whether I should invest my money in a Janome or if I should just get a cheap one from the big box store because I'm not that good of a sewist. Yet. LOL
