A Bit of Sewing, Stamping and Gardening

Small projects were the focus over the past couple of weeks as I haven't had any big blocks of time available to get into the basement sewing and crafting room. What time I have had was devoted to getting things ready for the quilt show, and that included deciding what I was willing to sell, …

Rainy Days and Scrap Dancing Fun

It has been another week of appointments and meetings, with little to show. Last night it was raining and this morning was foggy when I awoke. The clouds are supposed to lift later and warm up a bit. It was a dreary dawn, but I do love the layers that appear when the fog settles …
