On Bumble Berry Pie and Aging Parents
This week has been difficult.  Richard's 96 year old aunt died last weekend, and only two days later a family friend also passed away. Of course, we attended the funerals and even picked up his dad since Papa can't drive since his brain injury.  Richard's m...

Pin It Weekly #110
How about a little fine art for fun pinning?  I just love artwork that depicts women and girls, so that's what I'm pinning.  Sit back with these proper ladies (most of them anyway) and enjoy. What have you been pinning lately?  Add the url to one of your Pi...

Modern Monday: Cross Quilt
I managed to start a new quilt while on vacation.  I'll tell you how I pulled that off tomorrow, but in the meantime, I thought I'd show a couple of sneak peaks of this very bright quilt. This is what I managed to put together while on hiatus from traveling...

Hooded Beach Towel ~~ a tutorial
Today I made a couple of hooded beach towels for the little granddaughters.  They love to go to the beach or to Mim's house to swim.  A school of fish, they are.   Tracking pool water into the house is an idea few of the adults appreciate.  So I thought I'd...

Pin It Weekly #109
A second Pin It Weekly this week because I feel guilty about missing two weeks while we were on vacation.  It's an attempt to catch up.  One of the boards I've been pinning to is the "grand, kiddos" board because I love little girl dresses.  So I thought I'...

Pin It Weekly #108
Because I've seen so many barns, covered bridges and other old structures recently, they've been on my mind.   Really on my mind, meaning that as soon as I was able to start pinning again, it's where I found myself. I want to pin all of the photos that I've...

wild flowers and another spring
  While we were traveling and having fun on our way to and from Niagara Falls, I discovered wild flowers in full bloom.   Since wild flowers bloom in April and May in Louisiana, it was a nice surprise to see them again in June.   Of course, I snapped a few ...

Have Bernina Will Travel
In yesterday's post I promised to tell how I brought the Bernina to NY state and back.  It's one of the really nice advantages of hauling a camper behind the truck.  I set up a section of storage just for sewing.  Well, I had a separate "library" with books...

Natchez Trace Parkway
Richard and I love to travel along the Natchez Trace Parkway anytime we are headed in that general direction.  The road is smooth and easy, there is little traffic; plus the 50 mph speed limit makes it especially safe.  We jumped on the Trace in Natchez and...

Scenes from the navigator's seat
I did not get to drive very much while we were on vacation.  Covering 1,889 miles in seventeen days means sitting.  Lots of sitting.  Same seat sitting.  I do believe my hiney imprint is forever in the passenger seat. There were times when we were able to s...
