Stella is home


Well, the repairs are done on Stella. The ones we were having done through the Harley dealership. They called yesterday afternoon and told us my motorcycle was done. Hubby and I went today and picked it up. We are having a very wet week-end. Pouring rain yesterday and today, and my dear sweet husband rode my bike home for me in the rain. He was soaking wet, he wouldn't let me take a picture of him for the blog, so this is the picture you get.
I will sometime, probably after Christmas, order a new tank, larger one, and have it painted. Then I will have my bigger tank and Stella and I will be ready to go again. My front fender will be fixed also, it has a ding in it and we will get that done also. For now she is ride able and when my strength is back I will give her a spin. I can go out occasionally now and check if I am able to pull in the clutch lever.
I have been doing quilting this week-end. I have the shoe tree all quilted and am working on the tree table toppers. I knitted on felted booties while watching football yesterday. I finished one pair and started another. I should have started earlier on these, oh yeah, I couldn't . I will get all of them done that I need for Christmas. There is a break coming up from work with the Thanksgiving week-end.
Well I best get back to work. Have a great day. Dot

I'm just popping in to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and tell you how much I LOVE the Shoe tree...LOVE it! It's wonderful.

Stella's quite a beauty...and all of the tiny imperfections just add to her character. (That's what I keep telling the image staring back at me in the mirror!) ;-)

Those booties can be addictive, can't they! Oh so adorable...and fast!

Excellent to have the whole gang back together again -- you are more brave than I!

Happy Thanksgiving.

I love your Harley. My DH just bought one a few months ago and he is thrilled with it. Trying to convince me I need to learn to ride (I used to when I was a teen). Glad she is home.
