Forgive me, dear reader, it's been 13+ days since my last blog (grin). Settle in for a while and catch up on The… Continue reading Sew Much To Do Sew Little Time

It’s in the Details – Studio Update

We had our first spill the other day. Glad to get that over with! Can you see it? I was walking through the "big house" with my arms loaded with take-out Schlotzsky's sandwiches headed to the tiki hut for lunch when somehow the paper cup with my drink went flying and crashed on the floor… Continue reading It’s in the Details – Studio Update

Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

A three-hour tour....a three-hour tour....we can all sing along to that famous theme song. It's been like a three-week tour as I sit here and wonder just where did May go? A week or two ago I posted about sewing outside and someone said: "just like Gilligan's Island!" So I just had to google to… Continue reading Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

Around Town, Reconstruction Update, and Personal Thoughts

Thought I'd take a moment to catch my breath and "report in" a few details of this past week or two. So sit back, put your feet up, and settle in for a photo ramble before some transparent thoughts concerning my current worldview. It's been a wild four weeks! A month ago we were heading to Beaumont… Continue reading Around Town, Reconstruction Update, and Personal Thoughts

Monday Musings: Let’s Be Colorful

Over the weekend I posted this photo on facebook of me "shopping" for paint chips to consider for our reconstruction with the caption "think we will go neutral."  I'm cracking up at all the responses! Everything from "Egads!" to "they all look like you." Yep, this gal loves color! I'm going to keep you guessing… Continue reading Monday Musings: Let’s Be Colorful

Monday Musings – 6 months post Harvey

Today marks the 6 month anniversary of Hurricane Harvey's flooding of our home. My Monday musings are not focusing on what has been "lost" but instead the blessings that have come through this experience and the things I am learning. For example - it's people that are important, not stuff. Don't misunderstand, it's not a… Continue reading Monday Musings – 6 months post Harvey
