As many of you know, I work at a university. Last week was finals. Then came graduation. I am responsible for all of the AV for our College’s convocation. Plus a few other details like lights at the speaker’s podium, making sure the risers are all even and level, that […]

Today’s word of the day: pluvious. Pluvious is an adjective that means rainy. Today is pluvious. Yesterday was pluvious. Weather predictions indicate it will be pluvious for the rest of the week. That makes for a soggy day in the neighborhood. Today, I’m pretending that I live in Seattle — and […]

I learned something recently. And it was something that I didn’t particularly want to learn. A couple of weeks ago I went to the dentist. No cavities. Wahoo! But. Here’s what I learned. Those silver fillings from days of yore. Those that I’ve had in my teeth since the Mesozoic […]

Do you remember the super easy piñata craft that I featured last week? Well, last week was spring break. My son and his wife went to Chicago for a few days — and left their darling kiddos with us. We made piñatas and my grandkids absolutely LOVED them! Immediately after […]

Here’s another wall hanging that I quilted on my long arm quilting machine. This was done freehand. (Mainly because I couldn’t afford the computer software program! And that’s okay because I am really enjoying machine quilting!) My mother pieced it and also bound it. Isn’t she sweet? Oh, and did […]

This is a beautiful table top runner that I made
Do you remember at Christmas time I mentioned that I quilted quilts for my grandchildren? I’ve been doing a wee bit more quilting. My mother pieced this wall hanging. Isn’t it beautiful? I quilted it and then my mother bound it. (Bless her heart! I’m so grateful that she did!) […]

Welcome, welcome, my friends! Will all of you who absolutely LOVE daylight savings time please raise your hand? Anyone? Anyone? Will all of you who are absolutely NOT thrilled with it please raise your hand? Wait. Wait! WAIT!!  I’m being inundated with hordes of unhappy people. Phew! That was a close […]

This mustache for electrical outlets is so fun to have!
Look at this picture. Close. Like REALLY close. Do you happen to see something a wee bit unusual in this picture? Something that isn’t normally on an electrical outlet? (Don’t pay attention to the grime on the outlet, please!) Do you see a cute little mustache? When I saw these […]
