#sewingwin

Sewing 2017 – The Fitting Shell

So,…one of the other items that is taking up much of my brain space lately is sewing. I’ve had some super frustrating experiences the past few years and I’ve almost given up completely a few times, but I just…can’t. I thought I would try my hand...

NEW YEAR!

Hello. How have you been? Things have been well around these parts. I have no complaints. I’ve been thinking about trying to blog again on a more regular basis and told myself that I would start the first week of January! Obviously THAT didn’t happen, but better...

I started a business!

After YEARS and YEARS and YEARS of thinking about it, cialis and sort of dabbling, I am finally selling my art. I found out that what I was missing all those years was a partner. I need a partner...

A Tale of Two Turnips

The Front Yard Project

Here's a little progress update on the the grand Front Yard Project. We (mainly Jefe) have been busy tearing out the chainlink fence that was crushed by a tree that fell during an ice storm a few years ago: It's a mess. There was a TON...

Repotting and Preparing

My poor african violets finally got transferred in to some larger, brand-spankin' new pots. A local store had pots on sale so I was able to give a bunch of my house plants new digs. I am finding that attractive, AFFORDABLE pots are really hard...

There and back again

I just got back from spending some quality time with my best friend and her family in Richmond, < Virginia. These photos were taken before a gigantic snow storm descended upon us and kept us locked inside the house for four days with two sick...

Hi there. Remember me?

Hello? Holy COW. What the heck have I been up to these last SEVEN months? Meh. Not a whole lot. Mostly binge watching shows on Netflix. But…it’s a new year and I told myself that I would be BETTER about blogging in 2015. And then I promptly forgot...

June Garden

May kind of just got swallowed up, didn't it? Where'd it go? I've been really enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having this spring. I've seen a ton of dragonflies sunning themselves on my pea trellis. I have been a super lazy gardener this year....

Rhubarb Jam Macarons

I had some friends over on recently for a little get together. One is a current co-worker and the other is a former co-worker. You know when you have an awesome friend at work and they get another job that they totally deserve and leave...
