It is hot, dry and windy. We are enveloped in smoke, yet again. My asthma is in full swing and I can't stop coughing. I read a poem once by Elizabeth Bishop, called "One Art". (It is copyright so I... Continue reading

I have made another food throw in an effort to refine the techniques used to make it. I have devised another method to add the binding which eliminates the need for any hand sewing at all. I just have to... Continue reading

We were supposed to get severe storms with little rain. So, when the rain began I wasn't hopeful. Just a trickle to go into the tank. There was quite a bit of lightening and Charlie had to sit very close.... Continue reading

Next week sees that start of Advent and we will be into the mainstream of the Xmas parties and social crush. I hope the next few days go slowly so that I can just float into this. Not much hope... Continue reading

There is no way this will not be made into a movie. If not by a film maker it is perfect for Netflix. I just have not been able to put it down. It is sad, funny, almost surreal and... Continue reading

My husband thinks it would be a good idea if I could make his Xmas cards for this year so my little bit of enjoyable stitching is being transformed into a production line. As yet he hasn't given me a... Continue reading

So I have finished the first trial of Debbie's Food Throw and it looks really good. With Xmas coming I can see it being really handy. Why Xmas? Well we have lots of uninvited guests visiting our Xmas tables in... Continue reading
