Think about this.....

...the only thing scarier then reaching out to the unknown is settling for that with which we are comfortable.

Back to our Regularly Scheduled Program

Well...almost anyway. The little kid is still home, and will be for a few more days until he leaves for Australia. But, the rest of the family has come and gone and the house is quiet once again.

Lily is glad to be back on her dog bed in the studio; she's snoring contentedly in the corner enjoying being out of doggie prison.

With all the folks in and out, and with the shopping day last Wednesday in Frankenmuth, I'm fighting a something or another. My ears are ringing, I'm dizzy, and occasionally my tummy is not so well. It started yesterday in the afternoon. I was working on this when it decided to descend upon my being.

Daisy Table Topper
It was a kit given to me by my mom for Christmas and I couldn't wait to dig into it. I'm going to try to finish it today, but I'll take it easy. I know after being away from the studio for a while (a week this time) I get a little over zealous, so I'll have to check myself.

I'm not the only one feeling poorly today. My jeep is DOA; dead on its axils. Without going into a lot of detail, Jim took it in this morning after it's noise making starting increasing last week. The motor is shot and we are not anywhere near paying the damn thing off. There were no warning lights; not one bell was dinging; no indication that is was anything serious. We were told is was probably nothing more then a plugged injector two weeks ago and now it's completely dead.

On a brighter note, here's my grandson checking out the progress on Stitcher's Garden.

Tristan Checking my Work
He liked to poke at the various flowers in the quilt.

I can post these now that they were given out to my quilting friends. I put goodies in them for the girls and it was so much fun making them!

Goodie Fabric Boxes
I handed these out at our last sew-in. They seemed to like them and I think perhaps these may make nice quilt fairy gifts next summer at camp.

Back to some normalcy. Welcome winter!


  1. I LOVE my little fabric's going into my sewing room so that I'll have chocolate whenever I need it :) Thank You!!

  2. If you ever need more chocolates, just let me know! I'm glad you like your little box. I certainly enjoyed making it for you!!!!
