Well, it was way past time to get my sewing area cleaned up and organized. The first pic is my stash before and the 3rd pic is my stash 1/2 way done. I need more boards, but our dollar is doing so poorly I can't order any more in, so I'm going to see
The girls LOVE their new pillows. Rylee could hardly wait to use hers - she lay down right after the picture was taken and had a nap :-) Thanks to all who commented on them earlier - as you can see, they were a big hit.
Here's a pic of hubby modelling his 'chemo' shirt. I cut open the sleeve of a sweat shirt and attached binding so I could put snaps up the sleeve. This works really well when he goes for treatment as the nurses can just snap open the shirt to expose
Hi ladies! It's been a long time since I've posted anything, so I decided to give you all a chuckle with my latest adventures. So.... How can a simple job like recaulking the bathtub leave you feeling like you've just gone 10 rounds with Evande
My 3 newest cousins. These are the 3 little bairns I sewed all the burp cloths for. The 2 on the outside are Kristina and Anna, twin girls born on January 6, and the middle one is their cousin Henry, born January 31. The 3 are going to be very close co
Hi Cuties! I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. His name is Boo and he joined his forever home today. He is 9 weeks old and we brought him home from the shelter. Miss Mocha is not too happy, she is sulking downstairs and won
Hi ladies - update on my hubby's cancer. Well.....he ended up with stage 3 colon cancer and a total weight loss of 65lbs (29.5 k)! He wasn't a big fella to start with, so now I have to put him on a super high fat/calorie diet (over 3000 calories/day).
I decided it was time to get some sewing done before hubby starts his chemo next week. Our cancer clinic gives pillow cases to the new patients, so I've made another batch for them. Hubby snickered and asked if he could pick one of mine and bring it ba
Well, I won"t be able to do any crafting for the next 3 months or so, and it's not warm enough to do gardening yet (it's below freezing today here in western Canada). Why? Well, I had to get my pinky finger joint on my right hand fused yesterday. I
Just a note to everyone that although I do not comment on a lot of the beautiful projects and designs everyone is working on, I faithfully look through them when I have time. I wish I had time to give everyone double flowers for all their hard work and c
More pillowcases for the clinic. Here's the last of this batch of pillowcases destined for the cancer clinic. Hubby starts his treatments Wednesday, so I'll drop off all 25 pillowcases while we're there. I'm going to have to take a wagon to carry t
Remember putting wooden spoons through the door handles to keep the kiddies out? Well, here's the kitty I have to keep out. She discovered long ago how to open doors and hides in the cupboards all the time - just waiting to jump out at you when you ope
Here's a picture of the smoke from forest fires 600 km (375 miles) to the north of me. It is so bad that I have to stay in and work on projects (Boo Hoo :-) Now if I only had my embroidery machine back from the 'hospital' it would be even better. H
Merry Christmas (•"Kristos Razdayetsya," which means "Christ is born." ) to all who celebrate on the 7th. Christmas was/is a bit of a downer for our family this year. We lost my father-in-law a year ago, a nephew in a serious car accident this sum
