Marking Sewing Bobbins And Completed Projects

Did you know that it is important that your upper threads and your bobbin threads match exactly?? I found this out the hard way several years ago.

This And That – Copper

Thanks to all of you that prayed for my husband’s recent high blood pressure scare. His blood pressure has responded very well, and very quickly, to the medication.

Homeschooling – What’s Really Required?

Do you know what is required in your state for you to legally homeschool your children? Have you checked the law for yourself, or are you basing your answer on what your support group leader told you? Or your best friend’s sister? Or, perish the thought, the principal of the public school you pulled […]

What’s A Good Read For One….

…is NOT necessarily a good read for another.

Captain Kidd’s Cat, by Robert Lawson, was such a fun read for the twelve year old a couple of years ago, I thought that the seven year old would enjoy it just as much.
