The trick is to buy them pretty close to bloom. At the supermarket. Otherwise, I just put them in the kitchen bay....that gets early morning sun, filtered through some bare trees. Or, dump luck.

I started with a lot of red when we did the kitchen in the 80s: red Kohler sink and a complete set of Le Creuset in that cherry red. Might go back in that direction....not the sink, though.

You havent seen me in a while :) No, seriously, pizza is a treat once or twice a month and I do not eat the whole thing; half goes in the freezer. Otherwise: Luna bar for breakfast, no lunch, carrot slices and hummus for my snack with my wine, and.....Ive been living on soup for supper! And the treadmill. Okay, there is wine.

Next to Shaker, I like the Swedish simplicity and clean lines, too. (Sweden, Norway and Finland arent doing too well right now with the immigrant problems.....there goes that trip I was going to take to Norway.) Sort of modeled the studio along those ideas....light wood (or laminate), white walls, little pops of color. Still working on the latter. Running out of blogging ideas, though.

Ive actually got three of the Featherweights: Terry bought me one years ago (I took it to NYC and pieced a quilt while he was resting after his radiation treatments), but I bought two more with the crazy idea that Id have one of them painted and overhauled. Have you ever seen them painted with auto enamel? Gorgeous. Never got around to it, but the darned machines save my bacon all the time!

Catching up on my posts there, are we? Thanks for the nice words.....youd have thought Id have lost at least two or three pounds after all that lugging and stacking, but NOOOOO. And I did a number on my shoulder, ugh. Loom(s) is/are empty for a reason.....Im too busy hemming all these f...ing towels! Cant wait till this stuff is in the mail....deadline is later this week and I havent washed anything yet. Im thinking a big mailing tube to keep the pieces from getting creased? And, yes, Im sure there have been many chuckles and guffaws from above, and maybe a few swear words at my giving away his tools. Maybe not :) I was kind of sad to see the Toro go, but not sad to know someone else has to pay to keep it running. At least $500 every year, for one thing or another. Mostly stuff Terry could do (replace belts, change oil, etc) but I cant. Portable generator might be next....Im ready to go to an automatic/whole house LP thing. Will cost me a fortune, but Im done wrangling with the small one. Can hardly lift those big gas cans any more. Went out in search of an amaryllis today but only found a candy cane (red and white stripe) one at the supermarket. Had to move my orchids into the dining room to fit it in the kitchen bay window, but its quite farther along than yours. Keep giving me those blog ideas, kay?!

Thanks, Anne. Dont know about being back, but I had a number of concerned emails from readers and felt I had to fill people in. Maybe when I get a handle on all the probate and financial stuff I can sit down and start blogging again. Maybe cathartic. Maybe not.
