Spring Time...to shop...
If you ask Elaine, Winter, Summer and Fall would also quality for a time to shop. I mention Spring because it just sprung. I was going through my tools and supplies doing an informal inventory before I knuckle down and really concentrate on my longarming. N...

March Madness...
Let's just say March Madness today has a lot more to do with weather than basketball. Looking at the weather maps today Virginia Beach, VA is more like Orlando, FL if you compare us to Lancaster, PA. Here we are again on the doorstep to Spring and Mother Na...

Flag Day...
You might be asking yourself, and then again you might not, but I'll tell you anyway. I honestly have no recollection of not celebrating June 14th, Flag Day. No it is not Christmas, nor Thanksgiving, not a special someone's birthday or a day to celebrate ou...
