Last Christmas I got a new sewing machine. It has been almost a year and I am most unhappy with this machine. I intend to take it in tomorrow and tell them, it's noisy, the thread breaks much too often, and it acts like I am sewing canvas when I am sewing a light weight corduroy. I sew an awful lot and to go without my machine for a day or two is hard on me. The machine is a Janome.
Saw a new bird again today, a red bellied woodpecker. He is quite large and likes peanuts. The other day we saw a tufted titmouse for the first time.
