The very best part of the day was when my almost 4 yr old grandson called to tell me about the elf on the shelf at his house. Yesterday it tried to climb out a window. It must be fairly nice in Seattle if my daughter opened a window. She is a... Read more

I didn't want to wake up after a good nights sleep. Then when I was fixing my lunch I twisted to pick something up and my right ankle popped and was numb for a couple of hours. I did ice it and I stayed off it. But then I did get into the sew... Read more

Holidays have been hard for me ever since I married my 2nd husband. His traditions just didn't work with mine. Mine all included a big family with a giant cookie plate filled to the rim and lots of noise and kids around. He didn't believe in ... Read more

I feel lost this year. I'm enjoying making things for the grand kids but cringe whenever someone says have a Merry Christmas. My heart wants the old nostalgic days when it was just me and my teenagers after their father died. My head knows a... Read more

I don't even know where to start this story. About 10 months ago after my dad died. I bought a very inexpensive embroidery machine and then I came into some money and bought a really good one. It was the really good one that broke yesterday. ... Read more

The animals are acting a bit strange today. They are sitting on the backs of my chair or on my keyboard, or even on me every time I sit down do try to do something. Including the dog who has been in and out at least 20 times today. His tranqu... Read more

Instead of really cracking down and getting some housework and sewing done I played on my computer most of the day. I did make enough little squares to finish off the other 2 Rudolf mats so I just need to sew those together tomorrow. But as fo... Read more

Today was supposed to be easy. Take the dog for a haircut and come home. Wrong. At 9 this morning my phone rang and some jewelry store was looking for my dad. He had brought a pocket watch in to be repaired but never picked it up. Well sinc... Read more

I can't clean my whole house in one day. I did however do a really good job in the kitchen today. I even degreased the top of my smooth stove top. I tend to ignore that until it is just too icky to cook on. It's a big job and I'm going to tr... Read more
