Yarn Bombing


I have  never heard of this but I think the tree in this blog is awesome.  Hope you enjoy.

Sewing Room


One of my goals for the new year was to get more organized in the home and sewing room and I have been desperately working on both. As you can see my sewing room desperately needs to be organized. I cannot find anything in there anymore. I leave the quilt shop or the craft store and take it back to my sewing room and drop the items on the floor still in the bag and it has been pretty much sitting there. I have gotten a good bit done this weekend but there is much more to do. I have gotten about 30 items listed in my Etsy shop and as soon as I get the postage listed, I plan to open the shop. I even managed to find my glue gun today that I have been tearing rooms up trying to find. It was buried on the floor under some other stuff. Now I have two.  When I am done organizing, I will post new pics.

I spent yesterday setting up my Weebly and Linkin sites and got a lot of cleaning done.

New Year’s Eve


I would like to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year.  I am cooking some Black eyed peas and Greens today for us to have tomorrow and I plan to make some pork chops in the morning. I am not sure what else if anything I am cooking.  I do not plan to move much until the Rose Bowl Parade goes off, it is the only parade that I really like to watch.

What are you all cooking or planning for New Years?
