The Tukwila Trailers
I am so lucky to have the Tukwila Community Center just down the street from us. They have some amazing activities there, but I will only concentrate on the Tukwila Trailers for now. This is a group for senior women.  We meet every Monday, regardless of the...

When Left Alone. . .
I had such a great day yesterday.  Terry was off fishing with a buddy, and I was at my own devices.  I spent most of the day in my studio, sewing. Below you will see the first two coasters I made using old CDs and one inch wide strips of fabric. Here's a pi...

Thrift Store Finds and Succulents
Oh, do I love Thrift Stores.  I will search and search until I find something unusual to plant succulents in.  This pair of ducks has a signature on the bottom, but I can't really read it, and I'm not knowledgable about these things.  I think it is Huff.  D...
