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.

A little of this and a little of that!

It's been a while since I've posted anything on here!  Wow!  Time flies!  I've been a busy crafting girl for sure.  I made this small maple leaf table runner as part of the October Challenge for SmallQuiltTalk group.

I also finally finished a punch needle project that I was working on.  I've decided I don't like the ribbon and will be removing it and replacing it with twine.


I've been doing some cross stitch for a Christmas gift.  But I can't show pics of those yet.  I am working on some Christmas decorations which are also Christmas gifts.  And I joined a Secret Santa swap with the small quilt group and have been working on a gift for that.

Lucky for me that all of these are pretty transportable because I've spent a lot of time sitting at the hospital while my husband had a heart cath.  Then a week later we went to the ER because he was in atril fibrillation.  Then a week after that he had a colonoscopy.  Then a week after the colonoscopy he had to have iron administered IV and we were there for over 6 hours.  So with all of this sitting around waiting I've gotten a lot done.  I will be posting pictures after the holidays.

Today we got up to a dusting - okay maybe a tad more than a dusting - of snow.  I'm going to make a pot of chili for dinner and hunker down the rest of the day working on Christmas gifts!  Yay!

Hope you all are have a good day.

Thanks for stopping by and please come again!



  1. Hi Char, you have been a very busy girl. So sorry about your husband health troubles. I hope that he's feeling much better. It's a good thing that you are retired as you would have missed a lot of work.

    I've been busy too but not with hooking. I've been cleaning around the buildings at the farm when weather permits. We still have no snow but we did get a few flurries in our area which quickly turned to rain.

    I hope to see some of your projects after Christmas.


  2. I forgot to say that I love your little Maple Leaf Runner. Your punch needle project is cute too but I think that you are right about replacing the ribbon with twine.

  3. Char,
    Here's hoping all is well with hubby!
    Hugs :)
