Painting progress

Posted by Terri D. on May 30, 2016 at 12:45pm 1 Comment

The painting of my twin granddaughters karate picture is slowly progressing and I'm liking how it is coming together. The more I look at it, the more I want to do it as a thread painting and am looking at how I want to undertake that challenge. I may have to make it a little larger than the 16" x 20" that is its current size to really be able to give it the detail that I want.

Thanks to all who have been very encouraging about my art work.…

90 year old Father

Posted by Tessa Lee on May 30, 2016 at 7:47am 3 Comments

My father turns 90 years old tomorrow.  He was in WWII.  He was on a sub.  All through my childhood he talked very little about it.  I do know he lost many friends in the war.  I am so proud of him.  He always did his duty and took care of his family.  His health is fine but physically he is slowly slowing down.  We do not have many WWII vets left.  I had an uncle who was wounded in Normandy and France.  I am afraid the young people do not know how much his generation loved their family and…

April Showers, in May

Posted by Rebecca Sundberg on May 29, 2016 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

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 9 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…

problems posting possibly...

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:

-Empty your cashe (it's like a memory that can get too full within your browser) For Windows, push Ctrl + F5.

-Try…
