I know I’m really pushing Spring lately, but I can’t help it.  I am trying to be optimistic! The weather was horrible yesterday.  And the wind was horrendous, blowing the snow off the fields and making a mess of the roads.  Then came the sleet.  And then, when the kids were sent to bed, and […]

Won’t be long now… The flowers have bloomed!  But there still seems to Bee something missing??? The big finish will have to wait… I’ve been sidetracked, but gladly! First thing after the kids got on the bus for school this morning, I dutifully did the dishes. Then I made it to the fabric sale – […]

Posted on: February 25th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

I had heard about this award…  Seen it posted on many of the blogs I have visited…  Wondered what it would feel like to be nominated for the Liebster Award…  Wondered what Liebster meant! And now, I have the answer to all these questions, and sew many more! I did some research…   Why me?  […]

Life on the farm: Saturday morning.  First thing – even before coffee – got a request for help from my hubby.  Can I come outside and help? We have a humble operation, with only 50 acres and tractors and equipment that are older than I am.  Now, you can call the tractor an antique, but […]

Well, all the snow days the kids have had off school must be really getting to me…. Because I designed another baby quilt and this one has a spring theme and spring colours! After working on writing up a pattern for the Krazy Katz quilt, I just about got a headache from all that thinking.  […]

There has been some interest in my Krazy Katz quilt and this has prompted me to take the a bigger plunge in the pattern making!  I dug out my old notes and drawings, worked really hard, kept busy at the computer in spite of ANOTHER snow day with no school for the kids…. ( honestly, […]

I spent the whole day today working on adding my Soft Kitty applique blocks into pattern form, converting them to PDF, and uploading them to my new Pattern Store on Craftsy. Sew… I did not get one stitch in today!  But it is the first day in what seems like a long while since the […]

Not another day off school!!!!!!  Yes… It happened again.  I am so missing my Mondays at home alone with Janome.  But, on the bright side, I did have some help getting the dishes done.  Again.  And, although I did not get much time on the computer, I did get to finish the last details on […]
