I should have just stayed in bed. But oh no not me. It's Fri. I get my hair done and go to the post office (they don't deliver our mail), then the liquor store for mom's beer, the grocery store because I knew she needed bananas and oreos. I ... Read more

I spent the day rehashing some of my decisions of late. Do I really need a giant long arm quilting machine when I have Quilt as you go working fine. Do I really need a bicycle? I'm not even sure I can remember how to ride at 68. Maybe I shou... Read more

I took the dog to the vet for his haircut and hip check, then drove about 80 miles to go and see the long arm machines. Way easier to use than the small one at the quilt store. With lots more options. Now I just have to figure out how I'm goi... Read more

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

I was just lazy this morning after a good nights sleep but got my butt off the couch to start on a table runner for my SIL. I even finished the whole top. Tomorrow I can make the back and then show you a photo of it. I looks just like spring.... 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

Got up with guns ablazing but shortly ran out of steam. Ran to town to get mom her groceries...she says she didn't feel right but won't let me take her to the walk in clinic or the ER. So that took the wind out of me. I hate when I can't help... Read more

The title company called today and said I should have my payoff in my hands on Monday. But my sewing machine is not going to get ordered until I clean out this downstairs bedroom. It is about twice the size of the room I'm trying to use upstai... Read more
