Green and Purple Quilt Repair

I am doing a few more repairs now, and recently received this one. The main damage was from being folded in one spot for years. Several of the green squares had holes, and one of the purple sections had multiple areas of damage. The owner wanted to be able to use it again. The client …

Sunday Chat and Critter Watch

Someone was sitting nicely, paws folded on our front door mat the other day. The mat says 'wipe your paws' but I'm not sure he did so. Still, cuteness abounds and peanut butter sandwiches needed to be made and offered. This week, I made my Summer Squash Casserole, with a slight change. After mashing the …

Safelight Project 2021 Update

We are making good progress to being able to deliver the first 50 bags of the Safelight Project to the shelter soon, hopefully in early June. This year has brought a change to the bags ordered, as the company I have been using doesn't have the same ones I ordered before. So, I spent some …
