This past weekend has been pleasantly quiet. Friday afternoon the expected Snowstorm Jonas started falling. We have storms of this magnitude very rarely - the last one I remember well was when my daughter was about two years old (she's... Continue reading

I woke up this morning to a phone call (FaceTime) from my daughter, visiting with my grandson for me...here he is, maybe singing a song? :) Cute, no matter how you look at it. I managed to go out to... Continue reading

This is the pachysandra bed beneath my Japanese maple this morning - plenty of sunshine and, as you can see, mostly fallen leaves. The weather was lovely today, sunny and mild (mid50's). My friends Patty*, Barbara and I took a... Continue reading

Well, at long last I have two finishes to report ... and am in a holding pattern for the holidays. :P The photo above is pretty awful, but you can at least see the details of my Michael Miller Glitz... Continue reading

This is the beautiful red color that my Japanese maples turn in fall (they are red all year long, but darker). This particular tree is a 'child' of the big tree right in front of my house (we are standing... Continue reading

I've been trying to keep a pretty low profile for the past week. My neck is continuing to bother me rather a lot, sadly. As you can see from the above notice, my modern guild is having our first exhibit... Continue reading

Our trip to Tennessee was pleasant - the weather was gloriously perfect with mid60's temperatures and sunny skies. I managed to get out one day early in the week along a 'Quiet Walk' path in the Smokey Mountain National Park.... Continue reading

I've been working busily at home over the past week. My local quilt shop (Springwater Designs) owner wants me to teach introductory/beginning Foundation Piecing so I'm making a sample for that ... and enjoying some original design time. I was... Continue reading

I got another embroidered (by machine) name slip so I made a new name tag for myself. Just finished it today so I'm counting it as my Slow Sunday Stitching project. :) Those are 1/2" hexies ... maybe you can... Continue reading

I managed to actually put a demo from my last modern guild meeting to good use this weekend. I made myself two infinity scarves from lightweight cotton prints. One of them I am wearing above (I also got this pretty... Continue reading

This is a partial (though skewed:) view of my in-progress piece for the Michael Miller Fabric Challenge for the next QuiltCon in Feb '16. The only place I have to easily hang the bits to look at and photograph is... Continue reading

Life has been flowing slowly with a few hitches the past week. My father's 84th birthday would have been this past Wednesday. I spent the entire day thinking about him and how things might have been now if he had... Continue reading

The past week is something of a blur for me. I've been busy doing lots of things that all run together in my head. (sigh) Let's see .... I had my annual GYN exam ... and found out that the... Continue reading

Despite the rainfall we have had, the plants and trees here in eastern Maryland are exhibiting classic water shortage symptoms - early leaf drop and pigment loss among them. I spotted these leaves just outside my physical therapist's office two... Continue reading

I like to keep my birthday low-key. My husband always takes the day off to spend with me (we've been married 39 years:). A nice lunch out and then go somewhere outdoors - sitting on the dock at the local park, strolling the pathways around our lake ... like that. :) Linda
OH, be brave - the new machines are easy to learn ... and I LOVE my trackpad. I gave up on mouse use a long time ago as I find the trackpad easier on my hands. ;) You can do it! :) Linda
