Some days you do something that makes you feel really good.Just a little  
sewing job. My 24 y.o. DGD asked me if I could fix a zip in a dress she  
has. She's working hard and putting herself through school  for her  
Masters. She's pretty much dead broke and doesn't have extra money to  
pay someone fix it.
So to  make a  short story, shorter, I said I'd do it. The dress has an  
invisible zipper. The skirt was not one I wanted to open the seam on.  
So I tackled it and was able to do a nice neat replacement job without  
opening the seam below the zip. I used my narrow zip foot. no bump at  
the bottom of the seam.I'm happy with myself.

Congratulations.  That's a real success story.  ;-)

It's not the big things in life that make us feel good.  It's not sabre  
rattling in Congress or the U.N.  It's not earthquakes on the other side  
of the world.  It's doing a small job with satisfaction.  It's the  
little things.  Did I tell you about the lamp switch I got to put on my  
bedside lamp (which I love)?  Instead of the little knurled knob that  
tears up my fingertips, I got this monster replacement, a three-winged  
knob that's about 2 inches across, and turns my lamp on and off with  
almost no effort whatsoever.  And it brings a smile every single time.

It's the little things that make life worth living.

I can only agree to that. And: Good job, both of you! (OK, I didn't mean to  
sound patronizing, sorry if I did.)

Very late in congratulations from here but we've been overpowered with life  
happenings.  Getting that zipper in with nary a bump is a great grand  
achievement.  Good, GOOD for you.
