Indeed, it has! My first 2018 Island Batik Ambassador box actually arrived Thursday afternoon, 2/8/18, the same day reconstruction began on our post-Harvey flooded home…Friday was a whirlwind of activity, so I planned on filming early Saturday morning before workers arrived…only to be plagued by technical difficulties.

Today I'm… Continue reading Monday’s Musings – Time to Walk Outside

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
Forgive me dear readers, for I have been AWOL, it's been 11 days since my last blog ☺️ I wish I could blame it on just the recent freeze - gulf coast Texans can handle a Cat 5 Hurricane with a "bring it on" attitude but we are like the cowardly lion when it comes… Continue reading Winter Freeze
