No lightning bugs were incarcerated in the creation of these bottles. When you were a kid, did you used to catch lightning bugs and put them in jars to watch them light up? My sister and I did. Well I’ve... Continue reading

Well, my 2019 hasn’t got off to the big bang that I planned. It seems every day something pops up that has to be done and keep me from the sewing room. But not today. I finally got a little... Continue reading

This sweet cushion was in the chair where I sat, just waiting to support my aching back. We met at Mary U’s beautiful home yesterday for our first bee meeting of 2019. Good food, good friends, talk and laughter. Lots... Continue reading

Only a few more hours left of the holiday season. I hope everyone’s holiday has been great and that this Epiphany finds you well and happy. As always, I’m glad the hustle and bustle is over--even though I didn’t hustle... Continue reading

New Year’s Day at the Yellow House was a hit. The day centered around a comfort food lunch of ham, blackeyed peas, collards, macaroni and cheese, slaw, rolls, with brownies and ice cream for dessert. Way too much food for... Continue reading

It is sincerely hard to believe that in one more year, we’ll be going into the Roaring 20s of the “new century.” Seems like no time at all that we were looking forward to the doom and destruction of Y2K.... Continue reading

This year, I found myself sorely unprepared for the holidays. My gifts, what there were of them, were unimaginative and meager. My decorations were slap dash and haphazard. Most of my meager energy was used up cooking and cleaning. I... Continue reading

Mostly I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. All the regular ones like lose weight, get out more, exercise, eat right--they’re just made to be broken. But it has slowly been dawning on me that my life has deteriorated into not... Continue reading

This (above) is the only spot in my kitchen that doesn’t look like an Alabama tornado has come through. See Bella in the background hiding from my cookie-baking frenzy? For some reason known to God alone, I decided to bake... Continue reading

My hall decking is going exceedingly slowly this year. Every Santa, angel, or bough of holly that I place requires a short rest period before I can go on to the next. At this rate, I should have the halls... Continue reading

Your tree is beautiful, Beverly. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

No, no. I really meant to write “surly.” That’s how I feel every time I try to stand on my feet long enough to get any decorating done. This is getting ridiculous. When all this dad-gum holly jolly is over,... Continue reading

I have enough lollyspoons left over from making my quilters bee gifts to make gifts for book club. I just have to get some more tags. I love these little tags that I got at Walmart. They’re made from board-book... Continue reading

I survived my attack of whatever it was. I’m left with a very sore midsection and a very bad back (i suppose from the extreme barfing that took place). But otherwise, all’s well. I finally decided on my friendship gifts... Continue reading

That dog in the picture represents me for much of last night. Oh, it was awful. I had a flu shot in the afternoon and by bedtime, I was in the throes of a most horrible gastroentestinal attack. I cannot... Continue reading

I’m staying home today. I have never shopped on Black Friday since it became a thing. I hate crowds, and I’m surely not going to engage in a fight in order to save $25 on a microwave or a large-screen... Continue reading

I saw this little star ornament, called a Folded Swedish Star, online with the sure promise that it’s very easy to make. One Facebooker claimed she made 40 of them in 15 minutes. (Don’t quote me on that. I don’t... Continue reading

At long last, I got the binding made and sewn to the back of my Christmas Tree quilt that I made last year. Remember this? ^^^ *** Everybody is very excited in Alabama this morning. We woke up to a... Continue reading

I can’t say it’s my favorite work. And I can’t say it’s my best work. Maybe not my worst, but surely not my best. It has more waves than the Gulf of Mexico. I don’t know if Lena will ever... Continue reading

In celebration of the season, here are some Halloween-themed quilts from past years. The Hallow-kitties that sister Joanne made from a Georgia Bonesteel pattern. This little witch table runner belongs to my friend Doris. I made the witch block at... Continue reading

Cait and Kathryn spent much of the weekend with us. On Saturday evening, we enjoyed Rusty’s BBQ, fried okra, and other fixings. Cait and Kathryn carved a Jack-o-lantern. I found him on the front porch after they left on Sunday.... Continue reading

Look what my sister made for me for the “Trick or Tree” Halloween quilt. For now, though, he’s hanging on my tier stand on the dining room table. I think he looks good there, but I’ll probably move him to... Continue reading
