The last table runner I made took me 2 weeks because I only went up to the sewing room an hour or so everyday or so. My sewing room is not moved yet but the dining room is working as a temporary space until I get more of the bedroom cleaned out... Read more

take my mom along and I get stressed. She can hardly hear and keeping up a conversation with her is hard work. She is usually not hearing all your words so it's like we are having 2 different conversations. Then lunch with almost 99 yr old au... Read more

I worry I'll make a bad mistake, and the what if's have set in. But since I have some plans on paper I'm going to stick to them. I'll put about 1/2 the money away in an investment account of my brothers choosing and hope and pray I'll not have... Read more
