I'm learning to sew... 1) With shoes on. 2) In clothes other then my pajamas. 3) With no need of a pedal. 4) With no need of a pedal only if the pedal is unplugged. 5) With using the pedal on the table and using my hand instead of my... Continue reading

I accept your challenge Amy, however, I won't post my answer on Facebook because I like my blog way better! Yes, my dear sweet, crazy Amy I will make you a quilt. You will need to be patient - my quilts are sought after by many of rich men. BAHAHAHAHAHA!... Continue reading

You can't unopen a box. You can't undo what has been done. So what's next? We have thumbs so we need to figure it out. I'd say 80% of the people in my life don't know Jesus. And out of that 80% 79.9% think I'm crazy for believing in a... Continue reading

The last time I wrote, I wrote about how amazing new sewing machines are... Thread, push a button and your needle is threaded, push another button for your foot to be down and push the go button. Wait, wait, watch, wait... ding - change thread and repeat. You can do... Continue reading

I often write of disclaimers. There is always a disclaimer. Most times we choose not to read it. Always read the small print. This I do know without a disclaimer. There is old and there is new. Reminds me of the song, "Make new friends, but keep the old, some... Continue reading

After a year of doing a few free lance jobs, lots of books, lots of Netflix, lots of time with my babies I decided to take another chance at working a full time job. I guess the craziest part of doing that is I've taken a job working with sewing... Continue reading

Who sleeps anymore? What does one do at 2:47 am with no sleep, one sews. What are you doing this morning? "In God's economy, a person must go down the valley of grief before he or she can scale the heights of spiritual glory. One must become tired and weary... Continue reading

I didn't realize that people actually read my blog. I have been humbled this last year, I lost my JayJay... Maybe I can return with funny stories about life, not today. As always, and forever, Cheers. Continue reading

I don't believe because someone told me to. I don't believe out of fear. I don't believe because it is what I'm suppose to do. I have questions and I've finally accepted that in my lifetime there will be no answers. But yes, (I did just start a sentence with... Continue reading

I was 7 years old when my Grandfather got sick. I'm sure he wasn't a perfect dad or even close to a perfect person, but he was to me. I'd wake up just to get to ride in the tractor with him. It never got old. It was always hot,... Continue reading

I often write about my Grandma. I think about her every day. She made me a quilt from my old clothes. I'm not quite sure why she continued to make these "little girl quilts", but she did. Then she started to make "little boy quilts." She made them for her... Continue reading

I finally decided what I want to do when I grow up. I want to be a writer. Just one small problem, how does one become a writer? I can barely take criticism anymore. I'm a terrible speller. Grammar, well that is a whole other Oprah. This I do know.... Continue reading

Today is my Grandma's birthday, or would be if she was alive. 100 years old. Her life, to me, was a legacy. I'm not sure if talent or passion skips one generation to the next, or if it skips at all. I take perfectly good pieces of fabric, cut them... Continue reading

I remember when Ryan and I went down to the animal shelter. We went down there to seek out a replacement for Anaheim. His 15th birthday was yesterday. 1st mistake... replacement. No such thing. We sought after a puppy, truth be told, the only thing I remember is that it... Continue reading

Here in Colorado, we are sitting on a foot of snow. We need the moisture - you will always hear that from those of us that live in this crazy state. This was a heavy, wet snow - yeah, I know, snow is water and water is heavy. I walk... Continue reading

I know exactly what a dog's purpose is. It took me 12 hours to watch that movie... tears, tears, tears and yes, even more tears. The longest I watched the movie before pause... was 7 minutes and 9 seconds. There were two rooms in my Grandma's house. Well, more then... Continue reading

I should be honest, I struggle with anxiety. I have a few things I do to contain my craziness. One of those things is reading. I always turn to the same two books. The first one, of course, is the Bible. The second, "The Complete C.S. Lewis Signature Classics contains... Continue reading

I miss my Grandma like something terrible. Good gravy, she was crazy - my type of crazy. She was my Wonder Woman. 98 1/2. Blue eyes and red hair. A collector of sorts. She never used a rotary cutter. Cardboard. If she wanted a square to end up being 2... Continue reading

What else do you want to know? "If I could kill a word and watch it die, I'd poison never and shoot goodbye and beat regret when I felt I had the nerve. I'd pound fear into a pile of sand and choke lonely out with my bare hands and... Continue reading

Dear, my sister, dare I write her name... perhaps you should answer your phone. Seeing as I haven't blogged because my brother is worried about facial profiling. Oh, and my dear Uncle that makes a joke out of my life. Wait! My neighbor tried to hit me with a car... Continue reading
