Inspector Taco Finally! The pain has lessened and I'm feeling better today. So I'm going to "make hay while the sun shines." No, really. They sun is really shining. The past couple of days have seen sunshine and warmer temperatures,... Continue reading

I picked the Snowmen quilt and the French Snowballs from Lena yesterday, all quilted and ready to bind, which I planned to get started on first thing this morning. It is now mid-afternoon, and I haven't touched them, except to... Continue reading

The pain is back, but I'm staunch my resolve today to not let it stop me entirely. I spent most of yesterday on the couch, as I did the day before. By late afternoon, I could feel depression settling on... Continue reading

Martha shows one of her recent projects at the first meeting of the new year of the Piecemakers Quilting Bee. I'm feeling some better this morning painwise. I think being off my feet much of the past week has helped.... Continue reading

This year, my New Year's Resolution is to not make any New Year's Resolutions. In the past, I have resolved to 1) lose weight, 2) lose weight, and 3) lose weight. I usually lose 15 or 20 pounds by June,... Continue reading

My daughter Andy got me hooked on "Sons of Anarchy," and thanks to Netflix and my trusty Roku, I have spent most of the past few days on the couch catching up with the felonious doings of SAMCRO, brothers on... Continue reading

Dropping in to wish all a blessed and happy 2015. I have been away from blogging for the past week or so. Not just busy times, but painful times as well. My back pain has kept me down most of... Continue reading

My Jim Shore Nativity I'm sitting here doodling on the computer because I really don't feel like doing anything else--although there is much left to do. I got the remainder of my shopping done yesterday, and was that ever a... Continue reading

...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
