I noticed that my light colored under-lovelies were grey instead of white, after only a few runs through the very unimpressive washing machine. I decided to hand wash the delicates and my socks. I divided them into lights and darks and then started with the lights. A couple of years ago I found this… Continue reading Possibly Gross – Laundry
This last weekend I had a couple of hours to work in my sewing room. I was almost at a loss for what project to work on, then I remembered that last time I straightened up the room I put many unfinished projects (UFO's) into one location. I hurried over and opened it up. This… Continue reading Workbasket – Layette Done!

While on summer motorcycle trip, I snuck in a… Continue reading Workbasket – Layette progress and a new project
This project has only been in the works for approximately 5 years. It might be longer, but that is all I am willing to admit to. By "in the works" I mean that I actually cut out the t-shirts, Freychecked the edges, order the how-to book and the templates for making the quilt. Until now,… Continue reading DW’s Birthday Quilt – Many years, and three homes, in the making of…
