Stitch, Vote, Stitch…

If you haven’t already, VOTE! Every single vote counts. So go vote. And if you’re like me, you’ll be taking a little bag with you filled with some fabric, lots of threads and a pair of scissors neatly protected in a hand stitched Scissor Case. Oh c’mon, you didn’t expect me NOT to link to… Continue reading Stitch, Vote, Stitch…

The Pandemic & Life

As our internet is FINALLY up and running and my email is now, miraculously and somewhat bizarrely suddenly working again, I decided yesterday afternoon to do an impromptu live stream. It was very last minute, and touch and go, as the internet began misbehaving the minute I tried to live stream, but in the end… Continue reading The Pandemic & Life

Stitching with Gimp and a lot of Laughter

If you’d like to laugh and explore stitching (or in my case attempting to) with silk gimp and the thicker gimp that Painter’s Threads hand dyes, this was the live stream I did yesterday. Warning: We laughed A LOT. My attempts at using the crinkly silk gimp became more comedic than informative… However, I am… Continue reading Stitching with Gimp and a lot of Laughter

The Unveiling of a New Design & A Giveaway!

This is the little promotional video I made for Instagram and below that is the slightly longer Youtube video I made. This is the first of two holiday projects I designed. They are small do-it-yourself projects that can be made up pretty quickly and are perfect gifts for yourself or someone else. I’m working away… Continue reading The Unveiling of a New Design & A Giveaway!

A New Design Has Launched!

It’s been a whirlwind of activity around here. I turned 60 last week and took the day off! My husband organized the most fabulous little dinner for me up on our roof. He and my son decorated with flowers and fairy lights; it was magical. My BFF cooked an amazing dinner and brought a HUGE… Continue reading A New Design Has Launched!

Nude Men, Zoom & Live Streaming

I know, I know, some of you may be thinking – She’s totally abandoning us here. We subscribe to her YouTube channel and now she’s on Patreon and everything’s exclusive and I can’t do any of that, and what’s going on? Have no fear. I am busy, busy, busy and will have a YouTube video… Continue reading Nude Men, Zoom & Live Streaming

Birthdays, Patreon, Youtube & Exploring New Things

Remember when women were coy about their age? We weren’t supposed to say how old we were, so much so that people said, “don’t ever ask a women her age” and I think the ending to that was “or a man his salary” or something like that. Maybe some people still say that, but the… Continue reading Birthdays, Patreon, Youtube & Exploring New Things

Memes, Cute Babies & Refusing to Dye

As many of you know, my mother sends me little songs, videos, sometimes a cartoon or a meme, like the one below… And here’s another, this time a youtube video, which is still timely for so many in the United States. She also sent me this video. Amazing. Obviously I needed to get my kids… Continue reading Memes, Cute Babies & Refusing to Dye

Sweetness, Forgetfulness & Finishings

Had a tough night or day? Here. Watch this. Courtesy of my mother – a dose of sweetness. Thanks Mom. ❤️ I completely forgot to post anything yesterday morning. Even more egregious, I forgot one of my brother’s birthdays and yesterday finally remembered to call him more than a week late. Thankfully, he once forgot… Continue reading Sweetness, Forgetfulness & Finishings

Curiosity, Exploring & Options

Being curious has its downside, particularly in the middle of the night when I should be sleeping, but instead am listening to the air conditioner kick in while watching the ceiling fan make its rotations. Some random questions that entered my mind at around 3:30am: Where did the saying Curiosity Killed the Cat come from?… Continue reading Curiosity, Exploring & Options
