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.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I certainly did!  And I even managed to do some rug hooking over the weekend which made me feel good.  I also started trying to re-organize my craft room to accomadate my wool!  I had more than I realized I had!  I got a couple of gift cards to JoAnn Fabrics and I saw in the flyer that they're having a sale on organizational bins/containers.  My plan for this week is to measure my shelves and cupboards to see how deep they are, how much space is between each and go to JoAnn's and purchase some for other crafting products, then I can make space for my wool.  I'm also thinking about going to Target and buying open cubes to stack my wool in so it's in sight and not out of mind!  :)  But I need to think that through a little more before I actually do that!  :)


  1. Char, I'm glad that you had a great Christmas. We had a green Christmas but now we are having a big snow storm. I'm still waiting for you to post photos of your crafts so we can see what you are up to. JB

  2. Julia! Did you have a nice Christmas even though it was green?

    My crafts... lol! I will get around to it, I've been taking some pictures of some of the things I've done recently as well as some of my older things. It's been so busy with the holidays and all that I just haven't given it a thought except to take pictures of the things I make! I can be such a goof sometimes!

  3. Hi Char

    I enjoyed reading about your very busy life! Not too sure how you fit in rug hooking as well as everything else - but it appears you do! Look forward to seeing all your other crafts....Jill
