This morning I got up with a determination to see the mountains and woods. I find my personal 'church' in rocks and trees, leaves and sky. Today was a good day for churching. :) The Great Smokey Mountain National Forest... Continue reading

Today was sunny and mid60's - perfect for going out. :) One of the places I always like to go when I visit Gatlinburg is Susan's Mountain Stitchery - a local quilt shop. It's in a small row of shops... Continue reading

The past ten days or so feel like suspended time to me. Waiting for things to get finished or to happen...I found the two leaves above on the front sidewalk one day. Don't know where they came from as there... Continue reading

I read your blog through an on-computer reader (Shrook). Until today, I was getting your posts as abstracts. I've taken a couple of classes with you and I _love_ your work ... however, I had almost completely lost track of you as I hate to click through to read the entire post. I don't know if my experience today is a new decision not to abstract on your part or if your abstracting is just not working? :) It was lovely to see your work again - especially enjoy the in-your-journal entries. :) Linda

Thought I'd start right off with what I consider a really nice eye-full of color. :) I am taking a quilting workshop today and tomorrow with a well-known quilter and these were on a fellow student's desk. Wish I were... Continue reading

When I went to pick up a prescription at my local CVS pharmacy last week, I happened to notice their 'will call' assortment of bins. I got a chuckle out of the one pictured above. :) Suites my laissez-faire attitude... Continue reading

I have been in Ohio, helping my three brothers with an assortment of things and signing/shifting paperwork for my Mom's estate. The photo above shows my youngest brother, Kevin, standing in front of the 'mother' tree that is planted in... Continue reading

I'm still playing with the Waterlogue ap and my photos ... the one above is from my recent trip to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. These are from a lunch outing in my neighborhood: And from our trip to the... Continue reading

Last Wednesday, Hugh and I went for a short walk at the Robinson Nature Center again. We found a rather large praying mantis resting on the sidewalk along our way. Truthfully, I am amazed that my hands stopped shaking well... Continue reading

My daughter pointed this link out to me. I hope you can watch the video ok - I think this lady is a True Artist, albeit in a very 'outsider' style. :) :) Linda PS Here is the original article. Continue reading

Well, this is interesting....for some reason I cannot get the photo above to display in the correct orientation. Sigh! I think I forgot to share the tote bag I got in the swap last winter at the Modern Quilt Guild... Continue reading

Do you mean the red rug, Ellen? That is, as I understand things, a rendition of a traditional pattern for Persian rugs - it's been a while since I studied Oriental design, but I _think_ it is supposed to represent Paradise somehow. :) Linda

LOL on the skinned knees. :) I don't mind mistakes when I'm sewing for myself - I'm more averse when I'm sewing for someone else. :)

Sometimes it is hard to tell which is the 'chicken' and which the 'egg,' eh? :) Are hexagon designs popular online because of their presence in home decor (attested to by the rug hanging in the IKEA Marketplace shown above),... Continue reading

Hugh and I went out on Friday for our weekly day together. We got a late afternoon start but the weather was lovely (mid-80s and blue sky). Had lunch at Fudrucker's (definitely not on my diet:) and then went back... Continue reading

I subscribe to a blog that sends daily color-theme photos right to my reader. This one from last week really struck my fancy! :) Oh to manage to produce such beauty myself. :) I had better get more timely with... Continue reading

OH, Ellen, our minds are on the same wavelength. :) That was my second thought (right after 'how beautiful!') - what a great stamp this would make. :) Instead (lacking a way to keep it fresh and having no idea where my stamp pads and inks/paints are at the moment), I ate it. LOL! :) Linda

I have probably forgotten more than I've remembered for posting. That's the down side of posting less often. (sigh) MY physical therapist is concerned that I have not yet achieved 180 degrees of extension with my knee (apparently the deadline... Continue reading

I am definitely planning to be at the July meeting (on the 13th?). I think I am the 'program'. :) Goodie, I look forward to seeing all the new pretty feathers. I think this quilt will be truly cool! :) Linda

I've been persevering with my 'taking care of myself' routine. Last Friday morning I saw my knee surgeon and he said that I am healing quicker than usual (and not to be too pushy with myself, to watch out for... Continue reading

Today is a lovely summer day - warm but not blazing hot, humid enough for comfort but not breathless, nice. Birds singing, breeze blowing. :) Mind you, I observe this via my windows as I have not yet been outside... Continue reading

As usual, my life is crazy busy when it isn't quiet and boring. :) The past two days have been busy - happy busy for the most part. Yesterday morning was the second monthly meeting of the English Paper Piecing... Continue reading

I have taken my morning meds, changed my bandages, eaten breakfast and done my first round of exercises. It is taking me about twice as long to do things. The up side is that I feel less stressed, more 'in... Continue reading
