Six Short Years from From the Strawberry Patch...

Six short years ago this little bundle of energy burst onto the scene.She has been charming all of us ever since. She is funny and imaginative, sweet, loving and she absolutely loves art work! Now, apparently, she is now making balloon animals (and numbers!); she keeps us on our toes. She mentioned to her Mommy the other day that she was hoping for Nana to make special cookies for her birthday

Whirlwind Weekend! from From the Strawberry Patch...

We had a wonderful, whirlwind of a weekend with our two youngest grandchildren. We celebrated Pawpaw's birthday in grand style with his favorite dessert: homemade apple pie. There was also some cookie decorating, a nap or two, box stacking/tower building*, creative arts, ice cream and many, many games of Otrio. This game is a new twist on Tic Tac Toe. Mr. Goodneedle and I were amazed at how

Can Do! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Happy Birthday today to my wonderful husband. He is the most creative, industrious and capable person that I know. Never have I known him to shy away from any challenge. A few years ago he decided that he would finish the space in our basement that exists between the garage and his workshop. It's always been a "pass through" area where things are dumped off and where the second, back up,

Gratitude Sunday from Terificreations's Weblog

We’re eleven days from Thanksgiving. Eleven. Please don’t be shocked by my admission that I had to look this up. These last two weeks have been full and thinking about this particular date is superseded by that fullness. While perusing blogs this morning I read this repost by Cheryl on God’s Grace and Mom’s Alzheimers beginning… Continue reading Gratitude Sunday

The last few days from Romany Quilting

What’s been happening the last few days?  All sorts, really.  Starting off with taking the hems up on two pairs of jeans for Robin.  This was a rather long drawn out job, I must confess.  The jeans were purchased some time ago, and I washed them.  A few weeks later he tried them on and I pinned up the legs to the correct length, then they sat and waited some more.  Finally I got around to stitching the hems, quite a quick job really once I got on to it.  All done – although I draw the line at taking ...

busyness et al. . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

It has been a busy month, which makes me feel a little justified in the huge gap between my last post and this one.  Of course, this is the (so called) blogger who skipped out on blogging from December  2017 through May 2018.  What's 26 days?!?  LOL!

But I realized I need to get on in here and plug the upcoming blog hop I'm participating in!  I'm so excited . . . and if you know me at all, when you see what it is, you'll know why!
It's the Pick a Pumpkin Blog Hop!  It kicks off ...

Birthday Lunch from Romany Quilting

We all like to be remembered on our birthdays, don’t we, so I was thrilled when my daughter Nicky suggested we meet up for Sunday Lunch at the rather grandly named Orlando Country Club for a birthday lunch.  While we waited inside for her to arrive we watched the many keen golfers taking advantage of the Driving Range with their buckets of balls.

Golf Driving Range

Sadly the grand-daughters couldn’t make lunch, they were away with their Dad taking part in one of their horse events.  So rather than wait weeks till everyone in the family were free ...

One of those weeks from Romany Quilting

It’s been one of those weeks, alright.  Our young Birman kitten Gemma had a visit to the vet clinic to get spayed.  She is now 6 months old so it had to happen, of course, but it doesn’t stop you feeling guilty when the nurse whisks your baby away out the back.

The op went well and we collected her to take her home, complete with a yellow bandage on her leg where a line was inserted  She wasn’t too keen on that, and was happy when we  removed it.

We were given all sorts of instructions ...

Marking Time from From the Strawberry Patch...

I have a new way of marking time in the Studio these days, the rapid passing of each hour is cuckoo here now; and I love it! (The cuckoo, not the swift passage of time!!) I have been quiet the last two weeks, absent from the blog for good reason; my Mom and Dad have been visiting, we had a wonderful time. They are responsible for this beautiful new addition to the wall. It is a birthday gift,

crazy cubed . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I had every intention of posting over the weekend, but life is crazy and work is crazy and our weekend was crazy (with Boy Scouts, Disaster Relief training and church picnics all at the camp). Even so, I had time to do a little fall baking on Saturday . . .
I saw a recipe for and Apple, Honey and Brie Crostata in the current issue of Southern Lady and decided to give it a go.
It was very good with a cup of spiced tea as an afternoon snack!

I got some autumnal decorations out, too . . . 
You know it's October when ...

fall's fluttering in . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

It's been a fairly productive week . . . I love having a bunch of little handwork projects to work on because I can skip around and work in the evenings and at lunch time without a lot of fuss, and I get things done!
So now, along with the acorn mug rug, I've finished my little harvest stitchery mug rug.  I really love how that turned out! It used a nice, wide variety of embroidery stitches, and I even learned a new one -- the wheatear or wheat stitch. Can you tell which one that is (aside from it being the ...

When it's your birthday! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Yep - yesterday was my birthday. While I'm NOT going to mention how old I am, I don't mind mentioning the fact that it was my birthday. I think if no other day in the year that you write a diary for, you should write one for your birthdays. It would be super fun to look back and remember what you did on your other birthdays. I probably mention this every year, but I distinctly remember my 13th birthday. No idea why. I remember what I wore, what we had for dinner and what I did (made a birdhouse ...

Happy Birthday from Ravelly1

The other day was "Wild Child's" birthday. She enjoyed a ride in one of those cars at the mall. Don't let that cute angelic face fool you. She is something else for sure but GoGo loves her to pieces!

I Am Woman....... from Ravelly1

Greetings All!
Today I turned 63 years old. I got it right this time Molly......LOL!!!
I chose to post a fierce lioness because I'm still here, retired, happy, content, devoted to family, friends & community, loving life!
God has truly blessed me and I acknowledge that daily.
Y'all have a great day. Mr. Cowboy is taking me out to dinner at one of my favorite places. I'll post about that later.

ain't life grand . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Liv just celebrated her fourth birthday . . . hard to believe! She had a marvelous time celebrating at the Bippity-Boppity-Boutique at Disneyland. Isn't she a darling Tinkerbell??
She'd just turned one (almost 1-1/2) when they moved to California. She's practically grown!
Gosh I've missed being regular part of this crew's growing up (that's my son tucked in there with them)! They'll be visiting at the end of July, so you know I'm looking forward to that!

And since Edith was the only grand I shared in my last post, let me add her ...
