    Okay, I'm new at the blogging thing and am the first to admit that it will take time to make it a habit. I was reading my sister's page and dang it! there in bold red letters she referred her friends to my I feel bad and have to post something...thanks Shar...:)
      My so called yard sale/bake sale was an interesting experience, though not very lucrative. I think I found out people here really enjoy the food more than the "stuff" I was trying to sell them. I'm just glad I decided to include baked goodies and drinks so I could make a little profit at least.
      I included another little part of my project, a sweet little girl in a poppy field. This piece will be finished soon, and so now I need to think about how to finish the mirror frame that started it all.Thinking consumes a lot of my time, because the ideas are forever popping up and the possibilities for all things crafty are endless.
      I always have several projects going at once, and I sometimes feel like I'll never finish any of them. My most recent one is an afghan for my oldest son. He asked me if I would make it, back in January. He laughingly said it could be for his birthday in October. I laughed along with him, thinking it would take a couple of weekends at most to complete it. Well, I'm not laughing anymore. It is now the end of July and I still haven't finished the thing....grrrrrrrr. It's just crazy how fast time goes by, especially since I passed the big 50 marker.
      I'm thinking I need to do a lot less of the thinking and a lot more of the doing....just a note to self. It helps me remember better if I have it in black and white....maybe. Til next time.

AWOL...but I'm back!

So sorry I seemed to be AWOL, but I was trying to prepare for a rummage/bake sale for this past weekend. I baked my tush off and carried cart after cart of goodies down to the community center and got all set up....just to discover we had no advertising. we'll try it again this coming weekend, and I know we have ample advertising this time. I guess the good news is I already did most of the grunt work well in advance...haha. 
Above is yet another little piece of my embroidery project. I am very close to finishing it now, but I'm still going to reveal it like this, one little piece at a time. When all of them have been posted, hopefully I will have completed the framing and will post a pic of the much anticipated (mostly by me!) final result of many long months of work.
