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

Monday, April 13, 2020      7 comments

I know that as older Sparkers we are all quite used to being someone isolated and that is OK with many of us most of the time. I don't know all the people that read my blogs but I do know some of them. Do any of us really even remember what no... Read more

That has been my day. But it did include a nap. All this isolation is not at all helping my energy level. It was fair out today so Buck did get a walk but no more in the next week. We are not only having snow we are expecting temps down in t... Read more
How can there be this much need?
Friday, April 10, 2020      7 comments

At least every other day the quilt shop posts how many masks have been turned in and how many more are needed. Yesterday they received 350 and are asking for 600 more today. And they don't want the easy pleated ones they want the ones with 6 p... Read more

Thursday, April 09, 2020      9 comments

In spite of several phone calls and my Spark friends wonderful comments today I'm feeling invisible. A little bit like living in the Twilight Zone...all alone in the world in just my space with nothing happening outside the windows. Is this my... Read more

Tuesday, April 07, 2020      7 comments

This all alone feeling you get when the only interactions you've had in a month is with clerks and the pharmacy is getting awful. I did go to the store today but went a little overboard on the treats. I bought some fruit and some more frozen ... Read more
