We're getting ready for the largest class of Living Waters for the World class of Clean Water U students to arrive. We're excited. Right down to... Continue reading

I am TOTALLY fascinated by that book.....haven't heard a thing about it, but I must find it!!! I'm really not sure how you go about reading such a thing, though. (and that link had a couple other books I need to check out....Possession? Never heard of that one, either!) THanks for the links. Hopefully Charlottes Web is snug around your shoulders!! And you have a great time in Wales!

I've shared many times---that I grew up as an only child. In my family it was just 'me', but, I was particularly rich in 'cousins' and Easter was a holiday we often shared with them. Eight cousins lived in three houses all in a row on a little rural sleepy... Continue reading

Morticia by BooKnits. BooKnit shawl patterns have become some of my favorites. I love the versatility of the long (very long!) wing-span, the intricacy of the knitting, and the dimension and feminine flair of the beaded work. Is there anything more satisfying that a big, beautiful, wooly hug? Continue reading

Those poor Virginia bluebells. At first, I thought that as a wildflower they objected to being brought in the house. And then, I remembered. Cut daffodills exude a sticky, yucky, slimely substance when they are cut. If you mix them with other flowers when they are first cut, that ooze... Continue reading

My mom was one of those women who bought her clothes by the 'outfit'. Shoes that matched the dress that matched the hat that matched the purse that matched the gloves that matched the earrings that matched the watch. You get the idea. It was an 'outfit' and it didn't... Continue reading

There are actually words in this book...a whole lot of words. Unfortunately, the only ones I can read are 'page' and 'let's knit!'. But, it's a beautiful book---full of patterns that I would love to knit; illustrations abound. Charts are only slightly cryptic. Someday I might tackle something. Until then,... Continue reading

100,000 square foot building... on 50 acres... Discovery Park of America sets in the middle of no-where Tennessee. The old addage---build it and they will come---certainly holds true. This interactive, educational park was the dream of the Kirkland family---long time residents of Union City, TN. They felt it unfair that... Continue reading

You can fill in the blank.... Haven't we all been on the search for the perfect 'something' at one time or another? The perfect pie crust recipe? The perfect, flattering pair of jeans? For me, it's the unending search for the perfect purse. I want it to 'do-it-all'....hold all my... Continue reading

you really need to give yourself time....which I think you are doing very gracefully and creatively. hugs, (new) friend.

this is looking absolutely gorgeous!!! when I do it...I use a somewhat smaller amount of yarn, which easily pulls through the tangles; I HATE all that tangled mess with bobbins and butterflies.....when you can just pull the tangles out it stays much much neater!

I really loved Still Life with Breadcrumbs, last week's book. A little mystery, a little romance, and a whole lot of beautifully written words. I just started Paris Letters, the true story of (and by) Janice MacLeod, who burned out at her uninspiring job and moved to Paris after doing... Continue reading
