Today’s musings

As the weather gets colder, I am reminded of a simpler time in my life.  A time when my kids were smaller and I didn’t work outside the home.  
Life was simple. 
I loved it. ❤️

I remember thinking... how would I look back on that time.
I’ll be honest... I wasn’t fond of it at the time.
But, now I am.
I wish I could have taken more time to savor it.
Savor the still and simplisity of it.

This fall season....
I am going to savor it.
I am going slow down and enjoy the season.
Make apple and pumpkin pies.
Drink my cappuccino or my decaf coffee 😆
And just experience it.

Maybe even craft a little.

Thanks for lending your ear....
Have a wonderful autumn 🍂 


It has been a really long time....

Hello my friends... it has been a really long time since I have posted anything.  I couldn't even remember how to long into this blog account... lol

So here is a recap of my last year or so.

A very beloved Uncle died and I just didn't have the stamina to write blog postings.

Then, I got myself a JOB.
Yep, a real job selling shoes retail at a Brick and Mortar shop.
If you are interested,  here is the link to Me & My Feet
This is where I fell in LOVE with Earth shoes!!

Earth Orchard - Taupe

These are my FAVORITE BOOTS!!!

 So we don't have Chickens anymore.  But we plan to get some.

I finally (we rather) took the kids to Disneyland.
They have a wonderful time.

Because of my job, I was able to do so much more.
I don't work for the shoe shop anymore...well, off and on sometimes when I am needed.
But, I do miss it.

I do some other work now.  That is for another post.

I just wanted to post something and keep a digital log, if you will, for myself.

I haven't done my embroidery in so long.  Just going back and looking at the pictures, makes me want to start again.  My shop has been closed for some time now.

I should open it back up.
hmm.. maybe...we will see.

please comment and let me know if I should.

Blessings to you...

Sunday Weekly Update 1/18/14

 This week was full of crafting and TV watching.
Yes, I watch and/or listen to TV when I craft.
This weeks new program is Hart of Dixie.  
I have been watching it on NetFlix.  So, it is pretty much all old episodes...but they are new to me... and they crack me up!!!   They are very Gilmore Girls like... which I adore!

Well, I didn't get any of the Painted Roses squares done this week.  However, I did complete an embroidery order for a yellow daffodil handkerchief.   I decided I need to create some new embroidery designs for my handkerchiefs.

 I also tried my hand at doing crochet edges on a cut piece of hankie fabric.  I used a rotary wheel that cut holes in the fabric with even spaces.  I am still working out the kinks in that one.

 Here is a picture of my completed hankie.  
I am considering adding a crochet edging to the hankie to make it more feminine.

I did ad a few more rows to my poncho.  Finding more mistakes in it too.  
No pictures to post on that one. 

I have signed myself up for sock knitting class.  I really hope I take to it easily.  I am using 4 knitting needles.  So, this should be fun.  Any advice would we lovely!

I decided not to continue with the CAL.  Simply because I have this sock class coming up and with all my other projects... I just don't have the time for it.  I will however, keep printing off the block instructions.  I may decide one day to make the afghan anyway.

Next weeks goals,  make 4 painted rose squares!

Have a great week!!!
