I’m a scattered mess a lot of the time. I have too many interested & responsibilities that I juggle poorly. More like a dog who is running from window to window overwhelmed by the squirrels and sparrows and turkeys with no ability to stay focused on just one thing for any proper length of time. FIRETRUCK

music jan 17I have been indulging in the classical music of late.  It seems to go good with life! So much drama! So much excitement!!

Now that I am back (Guess who’s back? Back again-) I have been seeing all these posts concerning finishing old projects.  Well let me tell you I have a few I definitely want to finish!!


  1. The Narwhal Coaster that I was working on in my last post (see here Lazy poster)
  2. The Garden Quilt (see here Its an ity bity)
  3. The Star Quilt (see here It took 2 years!) I did end up cutting out all the pieces but I have to put the entire top together still…
  4. Another Apron (like this one It took 2 years!) I know a person who deserves a decent apron!

Oh my gosh so much has changed and hasnt changed in the last year and a half since I have been posting. The kids are all bigger – MUCH BIGGER – Why are they so BIG bigger lol!!!!!

So yeah – They all got considerably bigger. Hayden is taller than me know & Hazel is like an inch shorter than me 😮 Everything has its ups and downs living with mom but we have been doing the best we can 🙂 Also Gary is the greatest boyfriend ❤ He makes me really happy!!  All in all I am very blessed to be surrounded by good friends and family.


I guess I have a lot of goals to set. I dont want to get overwhelmed So Goal 1 is simply to finish the Narwhal Coaster by mid February. That seems do-able.

I have also started another blog about Fish Keeping Freshwater Aquatic Adventures

Anyways if the photo of me and my mom there is The Garden Quilt all balled up on my bookshelf. I see it every day.  I still don’t know about what to do for the back of it. I really wanted to piece the back with random scraps as I mentioned in previous blogs but the truth is I havent been sewing because I think my machine either needs a major maintenance or to be replaced and single mom of 3 kids on 1 income means all the extra crap goes on credit and I try to limit that. So I just sort of put everything on the back burner but the problem is too much time goes by wayyyy tooo damned fast.  Ai karamba! So I guess the easiest thing to do is hand sew and use the big stripey fabric for the back.  I mean come on we aint getting any younger here 😉

Well I hope everybody has a positive day!
