This blog has outlived itself.
If you are interested, email me, we will be starting a new journey in crafting at another site.
Thanks for the memories.
God Bless Us all.

It’s the last week of school here.

I didn’t get the baby quilt done in time to take to the shower…I was so upset at myself, but I found out there, that, the dad may change one of the twin girls’ name.  A blessing in disguise, as I personalized the little blankies.  I may have to unsew a block on each one and make a change before I gift them.


And the walking, blah.  I am so lazy and sleepy this morning, there is a little fog outside, and I want my bed!  But I know that my friend will be waiting on me at the bus stop, so I will lace up my old tennies and huff and puff my way through a half hour stroll.


New Goal

My grlfriends at the bus stop have partnered with me to get me moving and get healthy.  We started with a little walking in May to kind of warm up and stretch some very unused muscles.  But this is our goal.  To use the Couch to 5k program to get ready to join in our towns fall race.

Burning the midnight oil

By the time you read this, i will be going on 35 hours without sleep.

Why?  Because I procrastinated on making the quilt for a friends’ baby shower that is happening Sunday at 1p whether I get the last stitch done or not.  I really have to find a better way to let go of perfection and just let creativity happen.  I have the idea in my head of how I wish it looked.  My skills aren’t quite up to my ideals yet, so I have a bit of a wonky gift in this quilt.

I just hope she appreciates handmade in the spirit it is given and isn’t overly into store-bought.

Happy Birthday to my Mother in Heaven

Today is May 28th.  It is the day my mother was born.  I wish I could send her a card, share a cake, and give her a hug.

This is a photo from Mother’s Day.  I wore my mom’s wedding rings in her honor to church, this is the Bible I received when I graduated high school.  I use it fairly often.  I have passed my childhood Bible down to my daughter, it is well worn, written in, passages highlighted, been in the rain, at Camp Cowen numerous times, and who knows what else it has been through.  I have my moms last Bible in my memory collection.  It is a large print Bible.  I haven’t started carrying it yet, maybe in a few years I will appreciate that large type.


On her birthday, as on Mother’s Day.  I have laughter and tears.  Memories and longing for her voice.  Stories to tell my children, and ones I keep to myself.
