April Showers, in May

Posted by Rebecca Sundberg on May 29, 2016 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

What started out as an early spring, with the leaves coming out almost a month ahead of time, has now turned into day after day of cloudy skies, wind, and ‘April showers’ in May.  During the few days this past couple of weeks that the sun shone and the rain held off, I managed to get a very small vegetable garden planted, hanging baskets put together and hung and most of the unending weeding done.  On the days when I can’t get outside, I’ve been busy at my sewing machine.

I’ve made a…

My new sewing room

Posted by Irene Gallway on May 25, 2016 at 7:21am 8 Comments

Hi Ladies, I know you have been looking forward to seeing my sewing room here at the apartment. I finally took some photo's yesterday.  The two pictures of the closet is sideways.  I rotated them but when they came up on here they are sideways.  My ironing station is in front of this double closet.  When not in use there is room to store my ironing board behind the door.  I had my two matching sewing machine cabinets made locally in Canada.  The other one I have had for many years. It has a…

Hi everyone. So I know that this site sometimes has issues and usually they work itself out after a few minutes. However I have messaged the network support team to find out when they expect the site to run more smoothly...(are they running updates?)

So for now, be patient, and hopefully it will get better within the next few hours or so. Some things to try:

A Roller Coaster year so far!

Posted by Billie Blakeney on May 24, 2016 at 6:38am 4 Comments

Good morning all;

I hope that you all have had a wonderful New Year and a good start to the 2016 year. I wish you many blessings and joys albeit a little late now that spring is here.

I have had quite a roller coaster year so far, and as a result have been absent from my postings.

Sadly, my little sheltie, Koka got very sick in February with ear infections (vetted) and her issues mushroomed throughout the rest of the winter. She was diagnosed with many issues,…

It has been awhile since I added to my blog.  I have been busy making quilts.  I have made twelve for fundraiser and seven for gifts in the past year.  I am presently working on one from my grandmothers clothing. I quilted one this week for a wedding gift  My great nephews picked out a top and I allowed them to quilt it on my LAQ. They did a great job and we gave it to their mother for Mother's Day.…
