Finito

Yep, I finished the quilt for my mom. And I even sent it in enough time to get there BEFORE Christmas. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, and she says that she loves it. This is the best photo I got of the whole thing, and it’s sideways! But you get the idea. […]

Sweet Goodness

Posted by on Dec 23, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

My first and second packages for the Sweet Goodness Holiday Swap finally arrived. It’s been taking the boxes to and from Canada 3 or even 4 weeks to get to their destinations! Couple that with a mistake in my address and Diana, my swap sister, had a hard time getting things to me. But it’s […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Christmas! Our house has been a flutter with printing, sewing, painting, decorating, baking, and wrapping for the last few days. The above shot is several copies of this years print laid out to dry; they were printed about a week ago and will hopefully go out in the mail today. The hand painted wrap is […]

Progress is made…

I’ve kept my camera handy for the last couple of days as I have painted, sewn, quilted, knitted, and wrapped my giant pregnant hind-end off. I promise to post pictures of many things soon. I’m just still too busy too even think about taking time to pull the picture off the card. The out of […]

Truck-cicle

It’s still frozen here. Literally, everything outside in encased in ice, and it’s making our view rather mono-chromatic. It’s beautiful, yet eerie at the same time. After feeling trapped in the house by the cold, snow, and ice for a few days, I decided to grab the stroller and head for a mall this afternoon. […]

The goose is getting phat

Christmas is coming. And I’m giving one of you, Diana, a hint. This is on it’s way to you as of a couple of weeks ago. To help everyone else understand, Diana is in Canada, and she is my Sweet Goodness Holiday Swap sister. I’m patiently waiting to see what she’s sent me as well. […]

Winter Wonderland

This is what we saw out the back windows for most of the days today. We ended up with between 2 and 3 inches of snow at our house, and it was the first snowfall of the season. Given the weather forecast, it might even be with us for a while. And we might even […]

Starry, Starry Night

Posted by on Dec 5, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

There’s a reason that Van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night is so well known. It is in line right behind the Mona Lise as the most reproduced painting. I think it’s because it’s mesmerizing. Have you ever really looked at it? Even just a large reproduction? When I taught Kindergarten art classes a couple of […]

On my way

I’m well on my way toward officially starting on the Christmas baking, sewing and knitting. I just have one more huge project to finish up. And I’m hard at work on a pair of natural muslin curtains for hubby’s office. Each panel is 7 feet by 10 feet. I’ve put in two 120 inch seems […]
