...and checking it over and over. As my dear Vann used to say, I've been as busy as a cat covering up for ten. Shopping, baking, decorating, etc. Haven't got nearly as much accomplished as I should have in the... Continue reading

Yesterday, Andy came over and helped me put up my tree. This morning, I dug out some more do-dads (Santas, etc.) and did a little more decorating. So now I'm done with that. Not nearly as much decking of the... Continue reading

I made Sophie's fleece sweater this morning. I was amazed at how fast and easy it was to put together. Only one problem: It's a little too tight on her belly, so I'm going to have to adjust the center... Continue reading

I finished the pajama pants for Niece #2 this morning. I've had this darling little angel print for several years. I think it makes great pajama pants. And to go with the pants, I got my niece a couple of... Continue reading

Counting down the days but not getting as much done as I would like. And what's worse, I've added a couple of project to my Christmas sewing list: nice fleece sweaters for Sophie and Skipper. The blues are for Skipper;... Continue reading

Piecemakers Quilting Bee Christmas Party In the past couple of weeks, I've missed several Holiday meetings and celebrations. My back pain has been terrible, and a couple of days I couldn't even stand up straight. It's better now, but only... Continue reading

I finished my first pair of gift pajama pants just now. If you want an idea for some very quick-and-easy handmade gift-giving, consider pajama pants. I'm going to purchase matching t-shirts to go with the ones I make, so no... Continue reading

These dogs are so fun to make that it's hard to put them aside to make pajama pants for gifts, as planned. But I did get some of the fabric that I plan to use washed. Thanks to Julie in... Continue reading

"What?" Even though I have spent a fair amount of time in my life searching for "lost" cats who weren't lost at all but just didn't care to be found right then, when Taco disappeared this morning, I was a... Continue reading

I had a wonderfully entertaining holiday weekend. On Friday, Andy and I watched "Jersey Boys," one of the most delightful movies I've ever seen. Although the fellow who plays Frankie Valli, John Lloyd Young, sounds to me more like Jerry... Continue reading

In going through UFOs and fabric stash recently, I've found that I have several yardages, enough of each for backings or garments. These were likely bought in the heat of passion without a plan of use in mind--that "oh, I... Continue reading

I have a long-standing Black Friday tradition, one that I have observed since well before anybody even called it Black Friday. Back when Black Friday still meant the day the stock market crashed. Not that I'm old enough to remember... Continue reading

My Thanksgiving attire I hope all of my blogging friends are anticipating a great Thanksgiving Day with plenty of plenty: family, friends, and food. Andy is coming over and we're having a quiet day, just me, Andy and Jesse. I'm... Continue reading

I was down for a couple of days trying to tame my horrible back pain. It began to get better yesterday. Today, I am back to birthing puppies. Two stitched this morning. I think that's going to be it for... Continue reading

But much more slowly. In fact, it took me two days to finish the fourth dog, but now I'm one quarter way through with them. I suppose it's the cold weather, but something has made my back pain kick into... Continue reading

Yep, bones, muzzles, nose, and spots are appliqué. I'll use fusible and machine stitching for these. Sent from my iPad

The second dog block was quicker and easier to put together--and it turned out to be almost exactly the same size as the first one. So either the Buggy Barn instructions are wrong about the size, or more likely, my... Continue reading

I received my Buggy Barn Crazy Dog Days booklet, chose my dog fat quarters (from my stash), and made my first dog block, which was not as simple as I had expected. But then, nothing ever is. First of all,... Continue reading

Winter is here. It's wet and cold and grey. The dogs don't like it; my kids don't like it; my sister doesn't like it. I LOVE IT! I don't know what's wrong with me. I love winter, much more so... Continue reading

Thomas Q. Turkey Nicole at Sister's Choice Blog made a version of this block, which she found on Bee in My Bonnet. When I saw Nicole's turkey block, I, of course, had to make one of my own. I love... Continue reading

I finished hand quilting and binding the Little Album quilt before family and pet infirmities struck. Creative endeavors tend to fall by the wayside in the midst of family emergencies (including furry family). Daughter Andy is much better and back... Continue reading

I didn't know how badly in need of attention my shoe wardrobe was until a few weeks ago when I attended a communion service at church. As I had done almost every Sunday for years--and years (and years), I slipped... Continue reading

I apologize for that disgusting "Impeach Obama" tag across the bottom of the screen. I guess you're not safe from them anywhere.
