Last night my sister Ramey brought me a wonderful ornament to add to my Halloween quilt, “Trick or Tree,” which I have hanging in my foyer. I wanted to post of photo today, but I’m having photo download problems for... Continue reading

I confess: I’m am the worst at answering comments from my blog readers. But please be assured that I read every single one of them and take them to heart. And if you ask me some specific question, I do... Continue reading

I don't usually get in a really bad mood, especially considering how bad I feel all the time. But yesterday, I hit a wall. I was mad at the world, and especially at my yard man. I paid him $125... Continue reading

Today was clean sheets day. I hate clean-sheets day. It's a veritable battle. For instance, today's episode took approximately 30 minutes. First, I have to persuade Taco to get off the bed, not an easy task, and remove the old... Continue reading

I finally got this little Schnibble bound and hung it in my kitchen, just in time to celebrate autumn. I really didn't feel like attending guild meeting yesterday, but I went anyway. I'm glad I did. It was good to... Continue reading

Old Nate is here. And although he has had his old self downgraded to a tropical depression from a hurricane, he’s still whipping up a good storm on top of us. Lights keep blinking, but so far we still have... Continue reading

Yesterday afternoon, as we were returning from taking my sister Ramey's dog Buddy to the vet, we discussed how we don't feel safe any place anymore. Not at home, not at church, not shopping, or walking our dogs, or at... Continue reading

It has been a while, I know. It seems every thing I do these days requires super-human strength and hard pushing. I've logged more couch time in the past few weeks than I'm proud of. Last week, I didn't do... Continue reading

I think it appropriate and a neat coincidence that today, as we usher in autumn and bid adieu to summertime, I finished my "Star Spangled Summer" quilt top. In fact, at almost exactly the time of the equinox, 3:02 p.m.,... Continue reading

I haven't got around to working on the summer quilt yet. I've been busy this morning making this pillowcase for a Facebook friend. She is making pillowcases for use by the chemo patients where her husband goes for chemo. I... Continue reading

I have some of my Autumn quilts out and displayed. "Dancing Leaves" looks nice, I think, hanging the foyer. Skipper and I enjoyed snuggling under “Autumn Charm” last night while I read and Skipper snoozed. I have a few more... Continue reading

We survived Irma. After days of preparing and wondering if we'd be blown away, the old girl whizzed through here, gave us buckets full of rain (but no flooding) and hardly any wind. Not even a tornado warning in this... Continue reading

I can at least count on every other Wednesday to spend some time in the sewing room, even if I don't make it any of the other days. I have to get out of Anna's way so she can clean.... Continue reading

Leaves are beginning to fall, and I’ve seen bits of color here and there in the past few days. Oh, and the little yellow butterflies are everywhere. Then this morning, my yard man told me that a cold front is... Continue reading

I read a lot of books, as you probably know if you follow my book lists (left sidebar). And once in a while, a book comes along that has a profound effect on me, that I can truly say is... Continue reading

How’s a girl supposed to put her best foot forward when today’s market seems to be devoid of shoes that are both comfortable and pretty. In trying to find some new footwear, especially dress shoes, I have come upon some... Continue reading

All my border stars are done, all forty of them. And i have the bottom right corner of the quilt put together. Instead of sewing long star borders and joining them to the top, I’m sewing the border stars to... Continue reading

This is how you can tell when Skipper is catching some serious Zs. Head covered to block out the light. At night, he sleeps in my bed, completely under the covers. But for napping, just the head has to be... Continue reading

I’m told we reached 94% totality here, but it was never close to dark. The light did get very soft and muted. Beautiful. I looked for the crescent shadows that I saw during the last eclipse back in the 80s,... Continue reading

It seems sister Ramey and I can’t go anyplace without making at least one wrong turn--or at least not taking the right turn. Yesterday, Ramey had to go to Sylacauga, a town about 40 miles south of here. I decided... Continue reading

On Saturday (at least, I think it was Saturday), I bought several fat quarters, thinking to make the stars in the "Kris's Kats" quilt multicolored--pink ones, yellow ones, purple ones, etc. After getting them home and studying on them a... Continue reading

This is the block I'm going to use for "Kris's Kats" quilt. But I am definitely not going to use that yellow fabric. In going through my stash, I found it and decided it would be a great color to... Continue reading

Eighteen more border star blocks to go, and then I can put the whole thing together. I'm thinking I'll start Kris's cat quilt after I finish this. Andy's cat quilt is a snowball pattern, but I think I'm going to... Continue reading
