The messes I make...
Wednesday, April 29, 2020      6 comments

Every time I decide to try to clean up I seem to just make things worse. I find treasures or things I can't bear to throw away or things my kids should have or some memory will stall me for days at a time. I think this "stay at home stuff" is ... Read more

Well I did get off the couch today and do some stuff during the rain and clouds. I made 6 masks and finished the first of the little blankets. Might never be perfect but I like the way they feel. Will make a great little blanket for new babie... Read more

Had a lovely hour this morning when I went to drop of the masks. Sat and chatted with the city clerk and her lovely little dog. Then I came home and spent over an hour just wandering thru my house wondering what I should do. Couldn't figure i... Read more

One step at a time. I did make a dozen masks today but that is about it. I played on the computer and talked on the phone 4 times. Seems like everyone needed to know I was still alive and wanted to talk politics. I don't like politics unless... Read more

Any way I sure hope that is true. I get upset because people are just so stupid about some things. Yes this staying at home thing is the pits but there are those of us that do it all the time. It's sad really that people can't talk to each ot... Read more

The little rag quilt I donated to an auction for the program for foreign students shrunk when I washed it. All the flannel had been prewashed but it still did that awful thing. I spent a good portion of today adding borders and since it's a r... Read more

The next week has days in the 50's and 60's. Even at just 38 when I left for town this morning I only wore a sweater. It was enough for just going in and out. So much craziness in town. People turning so they don't meet you in an aisle or if... Read more

Last week one of the gals from the fabric store said they didn't need all the masks to have the pocket. So I tried the easier way and it works great. Hopefully I'll finish more than one tomorrow and get a photo. I'm going to ask on FB is anyo... Read more
