I got started on the last dog for my "Knick Knack Patty Wack" quilt. I thought I would finish it today. But then I went out in the backyard with the animals and decided, while I was out there, I... Continue reading

Sophie's rump makes a good seat, Skipper finds. Almost finished putting back all the stuff that goes in the storage room after the deep cleaning. I still have a ton of stuff to bring down for donation, but I'm going... Continue reading

A sure sign that autumn is coming, at least in these parts, is the appearance of hundreds of Little Yellow Butterflies fluttering about. I have been seeing them all week, every time I leave the house. I have no idea... Continue reading

This is the bed Daisy sleeps in when she visits. She had another bed a lot like this one, which Skipper destroyed. So I got her this one. Daisy hasn't been here in several weeks, and in that time Bella... Continue reading

My sister Ramey's dog Gretchen has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Gretchen came to live with Ramey 15 years ago, just showed up in her yard one day. She was truly a part of our family. We will miss her.... Continue reading

So I'm back on the Cymbalta, and my pain level has decreased quite a lot. Unfortunately, the drug does nothing for the crushing fatigue, but at least the pain is manageable now. I'm still in the process of purging. I... Continue reading

I love the pillows. I have been thinking (for years) of making a pillow on which to display my collection of costume jewelry pins. I could just go ahead and buy one and get it over with, huh? Happy Pink Saturday, and Happy August. Rabbit! Rabbit!

At guild meeting last Monday, I had forgot my camera, so I used my cell phone to take some photos. Problem is, my "vintage" iMac is a dinosaur apparently. It takes forever to download photos from my phone to my... Continue reading

We always said we were going to pull up these holly bushes around the front of the house. Neither one of use ever likes them, and they were a true pain to keep pruned. This morning when I placed the... Continue reading

I like that space quilt too, Anna. I think it was part of the Japanese exhibit. We have a sister city in Japan (whose name I forget) and we exchange quilts for our quilt shows. Sue Monk Kidd is one of my favorite authors. Her family and my inlaw family are acquaintances, and my MIL got me an autographed copy of Secret Life of Bees. My MIL's opinion of her work was that she used too much profanity. Thanks for your comment. Susan
