Welcome to my website. I blog, I sew and am grandma to many bundles of joy! I have hobbies and never run out of things to do. Enjoying retirement with my husband, but still am taking orders so I can support charities I love, help our families, and supply my business with things I need to run it and operate my website. My store is coming this Spring!

It is cold in Minnesota and typically, this is what our landscape looks like. This view is from one bedroom window.


My Blog

I write for fun and to encourage others and bring hope. With winter now here in Minnesota we don’t see the sunshine as much. Being told to stay away from each other by social distancing and all the regulations and shut downs surrounding Covid restrictions, it is not helpful either.

Not many of my posts are about sewing, however. Enjoy reading them and I would love to get your feedback.

I wanted to share this video that is worth listening too to give our lives some perspective no matter what we are going through:

This is a song from a 10 year old blind autistic boy that is amazing if you need your
heart lifted up during these times we live in:

Christopher Duffley sings Open the Eyes of My Heart in NH

Being mindful……our nation…our future.

I like to reflect on the times we live in because for me, having so many patriots in my own family, and others who have made an impression on me, who fought in wars to defend freedom, I am moved and sometimes shaken into some course of action I must take. These lives that suffered much and gave up sometimes life and limb, leave me humbled but anxious to make some sort of difference that would calm the waters for the next generation. Those true patriots, have made a mark on how I live, what decisions I make, and why I hold some things nearer and dearer than others.

We love our Veterans and all who protect freedom and our Constitution of the USA, which is in perilous times!

Pray for our Nation, protection of our Bill of Rights and our Ammendments in our Constitution as it was founded. It is the only sure foundation for which our nation, under God, can stand!

We must be a nation guided by a rule of laws, just as God set in place for the Israelites when he gave them the tablets with his 10 Commandments, our nation was founded by the Judeo-Christian standards. There must be FREEDOM and Liberty and Justice for ALL!

Week of 1/9/21

It feels good to be out of bed and at my computer after eleven days with COVID. I never thought our family would be struck with the China virus but we all got it over Christmas, but we all survived it too. I can thank God for that!

I am looking forward to healthier days and to get back to those things I love to do.
I am not sure what this quarter will unfold, and much less the coming year. I think I will do my best to just take one day at a time, as we all do….as we all must, if we are to amount to anything worthwhile.

Winter has set in but the days are now growing longer. The sun sets a little later each evening which in itself, makes me happy. I miss the sunny days and the dripping of the melting snow as Spring draws near. I know that will be awhile yet. I must wait.

I am definitely opening my store this Spring, if not sooner. I have things I need to get rid of. Things I’ve sewn but yet to sell. Vintage things and books. I have remnants and full yards of fabric and supplies. I am not sure what to call my store of if it matters. I hope you will stop by. Let me know if you find something out of place or missing!

Read my blogs if you want to get to know me better. None are related to sewing. Mostly just life in general, thoughts and feelings about what seems to be happening in our lives.

I hope you have a very good week!
