At about the same time that I decided I needed something to work on from the couch when I didn’t feel like climbing the stairs to the sewing room, I saw a photo on Pinterest of a Millefiori quilt. That’s... Continue reading

It seems that placing various forms of snowmen all over one’s house will not bring on the snow. It hasn’t even brought on winter. So far, we’ve had a few cold nights, but nothing that could be called winter. And... Continue reading

I found the two framed photos in the back at Joanne’s house. (Left) Joanne and Vann at what looks like a Halloween party at Joanne’s house. I don’t remember it at all. Maybe they didn’t invite me. (Right) Joanne and... Continue reading

I was trying to get a good photo of the red couch (which I didn’t get here) and didn’t see Skipper with this sparkly eyes at the bottom. Skipper and I slept late this morning. It was almost 8:00 before... Continue reading

Santa surprised me last night with this beautiful red rocking chair. Actually it was Jesse who delivered it. The reindeer were just flat out of steam. It’s really a gift from daughter Andy. She had to order it, and it... Continue reading

We had our Christmas dinner and gift giving on Christmas Eve night--just me, Jesse, Andy, Cait, and Kathryn. Then after the church program that India took part in, she and Ramey stopped by for a late supper and some visiting.... Continue reading

Jesse and Phil got the red couch moved in just ahead of the rain on Saturday. I love it, and it’s fine with Skipper. It does make me a sad, though. I’d much rather it still be in Joanne house... Continue reading

For Kathryn--her nickname is “Spooky," and she loves cats and Halloween. “Steg” is for Cait, who works in paleontology at McWane Center in Birmingham (in addition to writing novels and short stories). Her love of dinosaurs dates back to childhood.... Continue reading

A table full of goodies (there were two more) at Monday’s guild meeting There’s no telling how much weight I will have gained by the time this holiday season is over. It seems everywhere I go, there’s more food. I... Continue reading

Guess Who? Sister Ramey and I have spent the past couple of weeks clearing out sister Joanne’s house so that her son Jed can sell it after the first of the year. We’ve put in a lot of hours but... Continue reading

Some of you might remember these blocks that I made last year. They were to be part of a quilt with autumn/harvest themed blocks. As often happens, though, this project sort of fell by the wayside. I have an idea... Continue reading

Autumn sped through Alabama like a NASCAR driver at Talladega. After a couple of days of beautiful Indian Summer weather, winter is now here--cold, cloudy, and damp. I’m grateful that one of those bright days was last Sunday when we... Continue reading
