I spent some time here today. A bit of shade. And cloth. And missing the Man. We really became peas in a pod over this winter we spent in one room. Soul-o, better known (maybe even officially) as Chicken, found...

The Breadmaker and the Old Sea

This is my Dad. Back in the eighties. Showing my son how to make bread. Way back then he was grinding his own wheat berries. I remember. Years later. I gave him a bread machine for for Father's Day....


Here's one more with his other son. On vacation in Englewood. We used to go down to Weston's with a group of people every year. It's now Weston's Wanna Be Inn. Canadian company bought them and doing a huge renovation project.


I guess I'm just missing him more as it's coming up on father's day. I think step-fathers are amazing people. You choose to love kids you don't have to. Here he is with 2 of my step-brothers. Wish I saw more of them but I know people get busy.


My dad had 3 cats - Angel, Lily and Solomie. Gosh how he loved those cats. I think cause they showed him so much love back. here he is with Solomie

It is raining and raining and raining. So I am inside with cloth.......... I'm thinking about vibration. How it extends reach.

The road back home

We traveled back to Minnesota to take care of a few of my mom’s things.  I brought back this project she was working on.  I’m hoping that I will be able to finish it. But I’m not  very good at needle-turn applique.  She had all the fabric & thread in a bag.  We shall see…  […]

So here is my lateral put back where it belongs along with the fabric folded and placed back. I had forgotten I ordered boards to roll the fabric on so I guess I'll have to do this all over again when they arrive. The plastic pouches on first shelf are projects I have precut and are ready to sew. Show More Summary


I decided this weekend that it was time to repaint my sewing room. I hadn't bothered to paint those rooms while the kids were living with me and have put it off sense they moved as I hate painting. And I do mean HATE. So Saturday I decided it was time. Show More Summary


A fellow quilter (funny phrase as it really is a man) in my online quilt group is going thru some medical issues and I decided to send him a prayer quilt. We always jump when we hear of people working thru bad things and immediately think "make a quilt". Show More Summary
