Sunday Chat with Wildlife

It has been a full week of wildlife visitors, with lots of animals and birds stopping by. I give treats to some, and some I have to hold my breath not to scare away. There is a small herd of five female deer that live in the forest on our property and the adjoining properties. …

Guild Fun, Wildlife and the Last Quilt Repair

This year marks the 40th anniversary of our guild, so every month the social committee is doing something fun at our meetings. This past week, we were treated to cupcakes, well, fabric ones. These were such a cute idea, a rolled up fat quarter 'served' in a cupcake liner with a little triangle of yellow …

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 …

Sunday Chat

Colder temperatures have brought the birds to the feeder this past week. My Sweet Babboo put a new suet cake out for them and it was eagerly pounced upon by this downy woodpecker.

It seems like it has been forever since we had a nice Sunday chat, so settle in for a long post today. I got more done on the Safelight quilts, and delivered three of them to the guild meeting this past week. I'll show you the finish on the rainbow quilt this week. Early mornings …

All Those Last Minute Details

Wow, it is just a few days to Christmas, where has this year gone? December comes in with such anticipation, and then I run out of time. Thankfully, the decorating is much simpler now, with carloads going to the thrift store and not having every horizontal surface in the house covered in Christmas. I finished …

Christmas with the MINI Club

This year, we were once again able to spend a weekend with our MINI club at a resort to party, have fun drives and do fun things. The directors chose to bring us back to the Lake Lure Inn where we've been before. I posted a lot of pictures and history about the inn two …
