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!
