Welcome

I have several interests to share through this blog including my love of needlework, quilting, cooking, and my pets, Molly and Butterscotch. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with adding to most of these areas over time. I hope you enjoy it.

House Cleaning

Well, I've been meaning to work on the closets for awhile and tonight at 10:00 I got started.  What a time to start cleaning you say??  Well, I'm a night owl and sometimes it takes me awhile to get going.  In any case, I found some photos from back when we actually took pictures with film cameras and had them developed.  I found some good pictures of some of my older projects I wanted to share.  I hope they come out alright.

New Framed Pieces

In February, I promised photos of the completed framed pieces that I had taken in.  I had finished Just Nan's "Last Stitches of 1999" 12-31-99 and started "First Stitches of 2000" 1-1-00.  I got them back from the framer, but I have not been able to get any photos that you can see the detail yet. 

Instead, here are three out of the four pieces that I took in for framing in March.  I love the hand-painted mats by Jill Rensel - they are so worth it!!  I just picked them up this weekend and will get the fourth one back this Satruday.  I hope you enjoy them.
