One reason it has been a week since I’ve blogged is that I find myself with too many books to read. I love books and reading, but I’ve let my TBR (too be read) list get clogged up. I have... Continue reading

I can’t say it was easy, but it was certainly a great weekend. I ate too much and pushed too far, but I’m glad I did. I think everyone had a great time, talking and laughing and picking and singing.... Continue reading

For the past couple of years (maybe more), I’ve been working in a sewing room that looks like a scene from “Hoarders.” I’ve managed to make quilting progress by pushing whatever mess is in my way at the time over... Continue reading

Yesterday was National Siblings Day. I feel bad for any woman who does not have sisters. They seem like a necessary part of life to me. My best friends, my go-to folks when I have troubles or triumphs, my partners... Continue reading

Well, almost. I’ve decided I need to make her nose a little more prominent. You can’t even see it in the photo can you? There isn’t much to it, just a couple of black lines, but I think they need... Continue reading
