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.

What a week this has been!!!!  First all the snow, then all the sleet, then more snow!  And the cold!  Aaarrggghhhh!!!  I, like a gazillion others, am sooooo ready for spring!  I want to go to Amish Country and buy some chairs for my new front porch.  I want to sit in said chairs and while it's still a little cool do rug hooking, then as the weather warms up do cross stitch and then when it's really hot just sit out there with a good book and a popsicle and enjoy life!  I don't want to shovel more snow.  I don't want to keep bundling up in layer after layer of clothing!  I want to drive with my car windows down!  Whine, whine, whine!  :)

Meanwhile, I'm so close to having the quilts finished!  Yay!  Then I can dedicate my spare time to rug hooking!  Yay!!!

Take care everyone!


  1. Hi Char, Sorry about not having been around. I never seem to have enough time to read everyone's blogs. Congratulations on having your quilt done. Wow! That was fast.

    I read your comment on RHD Daily Discussion today. I'm glad that your life is so much better now. You obviousely have a lot of courage.
    Take care, JB

  2. Thanks Julia! I posted that on RHD not to be a downer but because it's important to me that people see that you can survive horrible things in your life and that sometimes it's not an illness that you've survived but something else as well. I can honestly say that all of that changed me for the better. I'm a much happier person, less afraid to try new things - like rug hooking, and have discovered parts of me that I never knew existed!
