About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

First time officially blogging...

This is my first time officially blogging...  It took me about a gazillion tries to finally get to this point and I'm still not too clear on what all I want/need to do.  I want to add some of the blogs I routinely check out.  I need to figure out how to add pictures and all that fun stuff.  But, today is number 1.

I had a great weekend!  Worked in the yard pulling up weeds, preparing the rose bushes for winter, and just cleaning up the yard in general.  It was windy and chilly in Northern Ohio on Saturday morning but we hung in there and finished up.  Then I worked on hand quilting one of my granddaughter's quilts.  I have the other granddaughter's quilt all pinned together and ready to start handquilting when I get done with the first one.  Only 13 more blocks to go and I'll be done with the first one.  Then all I have to do is put the binding on, label it and wash it and I'll be good to go.  I had hoped to have them both done for Christmas but may have to wait until their birthdays in February.  I've also been working on my Christmas crafts - I only need a mere 30!  And in between all of this I'm trying to finish up my cardinal mat turn pillow for my rug hooking.

So, what are you all up to?


  1. Congratulations Char on your very first post. You did it. I don't know what type of computer you have but if it's an Apple I may be able to direct you a bit on uploading photos from your computer. Mine is an iMac and I create a file on my desktop and then I open my iphoto library and drag the photos I want to upload on my blog in the file and then to upload them on the blog.

    Good luck. JB

  2. Thanks for the info. My computer is a Dell Microsoft. I thought I had figured out how to add the blogs that I follow but I seen they didn't show up. :(
