Monday Musings – Less Is More

It's Monday again! Wow - time sure flies when you are having fun!

One Monthly Goal – February 2018

Setting just one monthly goal reminds me of "how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!"

My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday

I remember waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. The Jetsons and Yogi Bear were among my favorites. I especially liked the way Jane could look so perfectly made up when talking on her futuristic phone. If I could make that come true I might be tempted to use FaceTime or Skype....until then, no thank… Continue reading My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday
