I started this cross-stitch sampler quite a while ago--maybe in 2019. I got distracted by something--I think maybe it was the millefiori quilt. Anyway, I had all but forgot about the sampler. Yesterday I was going through a drawer looking... Continue reading

I got the monster laid out on my bed to trim the edges. It was quite an undertaking. I turned it back so that I could show the wonderful quilting that my long-armer friends did. I'm thinking I'm not going... Continue reading

Yeah, those rose bushes are full of vines. My yard guy doesn't like to touch them. I hung my "Star Spangled Summer" quilt across a front porch railing for the reveling neighbors to enjoy on the 4th. That's the only... Continue reading

While sewing up T Rex today, he told me all about his back story. Here 'tis. When he was a young rex, he told his parents that when he grew up he wanted to be a Queen. His folks laughed... Continue reading

In a comment to yesterday's post, Barbara wondered if others have avoided not just covid but also flu and other communicable ailments by wearing a mask. Some of you have probably read, as I have in several reports, that cases... Continue reading

This is what I found last night as I came out of the bathroom from brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed. That dog. Sister Ramey and I went to in-person church yesterday for the first time in at... Continue reading

Tommy Triceratops now has a visible fourth leg, which makes him (and me) very happy. The surgery was fairly simple. I got the plants cut out for the next dino block, which will be His Highness Tyranonsaurus Rex, King of... Continue reading

Feeling awfully sad. I just learned that one of the First Dogs, Champ, has passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. I know his Biden family, including his brother Major, will miss him. I understand he was a very good dog.... Continue reading

Meet Tommy Triceratops. He actually has three horns as a good triceratops should. His third one is on his starboard side, so you can't see it from here. I'm thinking I really need to remove his inner hind leg. That... Continue reading

For the first time in well over a year, I entered a restaurant yesterday. Daughter Andy, grandson Jesse, and I had a great Mexican lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. I had an enchilada with beans, rice, and guacamole... Continue reading

Meet Billy Brontosaurus. I cut him out yesterday, and stitched him up this morning. It took longer to cut him out than to stitch him. This will be part of a Christmas present I'm making for someone special. Not a... Continue reading

How long has it been since I've blogged? I think about two weeks. Trouble was, I just didn't have a lot to blog about. I've had some bad days lately with the pain and fatigue, so I've been doing a... Continue reading

The top would have been completely finished today if I could have decided whether or not to add a border--but I couldn't. From the beginning, I was planning to add a border of quilt blocks--repeating either the Friendship Star or... Continue reading
