Mooshie was so old and thin, but she still leaped through the air for hairties. She would collapse onto the floor and have no idea why she had trouble moving. She behaved as if she had no idea she was... Continue reading

I was still messing around and wasting time with quilting. I got distracted by art quilting. I then thought about attaching Journaling pieces to a quilt. I made a few small ones and tied on pieces - you can see... Continue reading

I have never even seen the movie The Princess Diaries, but apparently when Anne Hathaway tosses her glasses for contacts and straightens her curly hair it caused young girls to either do or want to do the same. Nice added... Continue reading
