I have been busy, as I am sure you have been also. There has been work, running, eating out, schoolwork, family, friends, teaching, puppies, yard work, etc. In between all of that life, I have found time for a few little projects. Hopefully soon there will be more time for sewing room fun time, being… Continue reading Workbasket – Maid to Man
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!

Until now,… Continue reading DW’s Birthday Quilt – Many years, and three homes, in the making of…

With no set direction in mind we set off, turning here and there as we came to an intersection, enticed by interesting looking historic homes. For fear of another graceless fall, I hadn't brought my camera phone. The… Continue reading Laguna Seca -Day #8

I was trying to look down a side road to see the front of an interesting looking building. As I gave a running step off the curb, my left… Continue reading Laguna Seca – Day #7
