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.

Better today!

Thanks to everyone for their sympathy when I whined the other day here on my blog!  My daughter told me this morning that the gas is to be turned on tomorrow and if everything goes well they'll be moving out tomorrow or Friday.

I promise I'll be posting pictures soon.  I've bought a few odds and ends over the past couple of months and just need to charge the camera, take pictures and then post. 

As the weather is getting cooler I'm starting to really get the urge to craft/hook/quilt - whatever comes to mind.  I do need to finish my granddaughter's baby's quilt and I need to get it done fairly soon!  She's due October 18!!!  Then I need to work on my Christmas crafts because that is approaching very quickly!  But I really want to work on a saltbox house hooked rug to hang above the doorway from the living room into the kitchen!  I read all your blogs and see you all doing so much.  How on earth do you find the time to fit it all in?  I must be doing something wrong because more days are spent not crafting than on crafting... :(

Happy crafting to all!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Any tips on how you get so much crafting done will be truly appreciated!


  1. Char, its good to hear you are doing better today can't wait to see the new things you are planning on posting. And, I hope you find time to do all the crafts you are wanting to Blessings,

  2. Sorry I don't have a recipe for making much crafts these days. I'm a bit too busy even for hooking. I did a wee bit of quilting this week just before going to bed. Hope you feel better soon. Hang in there and do what you would like to do like the Saltbox house. Baby doesn't care much for a quilt right now anyway. You have to be able to enjoy what you do so it will get done faster. Do something for you for a change. My 2 cent worth. Hugs, JB
