Cool days…I love them…

It’s cool and damp today, as was last night. I love weather like this. I always have. I think I was made for living in the UK…or Oregon. But, here I am, in Kansas. I do love the natural environment here, and have lots of wonderful memories of my time on a farm not too…

Cat calamities and other nonsense…

This little number has been progressing nicely… She did, indeed, go with me to Oklahoma this weekend. I stitched on her whenever time was available. We stayed fairly busy, even though we had little planned. H went to the Laker’s Game in Oklahoma City with family Friday night…I opted out and instead went to the…

Headed south…

Where is this piece going? I’m not sure esthetically. But physically it’s going with me to Oklahoma for the weekend. I hope you all have a good one. It’s cold here again. Wishing you warmer weather than this! P.S. Buggar refuses to go out…

Cabins and dreams…

Last night I finished my second log cabin piece, as inspired by Jude’s latest works.   It’s been fun to put them together. I had enough fabrics from last year’s dyeing efforts to make each swatch a different fabric. The two lightest colored pieces were dyed with mulberries. The others were dyed with Rit. Maybe I…

A bit of this and that…

I don’t have much to write about today. I’m mainly sharing pictures. Why? Because it’s sunny and gorgeous out, I slept late so I am missing a chunk of the day, and I’m itching to go here and stitch: Hey, don’t laugh. It is a very redneck set up, but it works! I made this…

Birds, bees and…ducks…

The past week has felt like spring. I’ve had a few bees buzzing around me in the backyard, likely in search of blossoms. (That’s a photo from last spring.) The only thing I’ve seen blooming so far is shepherd’s purse which is an herb that has a little white globe-type blossom. But after nearly an…

Karma or coincidence?

I couldn’t get started just now until all my photos were uploaded. I’m not sure why I couldn’t just start writing, other than I couldn’t think of what I wanted to say until those photos left my phone and arrived on the computer where I could add them here. Maybe it’s because I don’t have…

Getting it wrong…

I read a blog post recently which gave new bloggers tips for how to do things right on a blog. It went something like: post at the same time every day, have a detailed explanation of exactly what your blog is about, respond immediately to every comment (not to do so supposedly shows you don’t…

Path…

It feels too early for me to write anything. I’m not sure my brain is working yet. But I want to spend the bulk of the day stitching and relaxing, although a bath and badly needed hair wash is next on the agenda, so it seems like the best plan is to write now, play later….

Two more weeks…

We had a good laugh last week when one of the DJs H works with announced there would be two more weeks of winter predicted by the groundhog. Expectedly, he caught a lot of flack for that. This guy has a tendency to not research anything. I’m actually ok with there being six more weeks, as I…

Not a quilter…

The days have been very cold…and windy. Not really to our liking, at all. There has been a lot of indoor time, looking outside, listening to wind chimes… Playing inside in boxes… And desperate faces at the window… Not much to write home about. Seeing how there wasn’t a lot going on, I took the…

Just. One. Thing.

I made it up to the sewing room a few nights ago. It’s cold up there in winter, so I have a tendency to work on projects downstairs rather than spending much time there. I had some items to take up and took a moment to look around. All my unfinished projects were staring me…
