The First Ten Books For 2015

I have been blessed with an abundance of new books to be read! After hearing some new-to-me speakers, I bought a few for myself at my church’s local IF:Gathering and then again at Women of Faith. Most, though, were gifts. No matter how I came to own them, I have a LOT of new books […]

REBOOT: What I’ve Been Reading

Time for reading slowed considerably for me this last year. It didn’t stop entirely, though, and I’ve read quite a bit since early summer.

You know, of course, how important I believe it is that you, and I, spend some time reading. These wise words echo often in my mind:

“Read, read, read! Use the […]

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Quilt…..

My grandson’s quilt has been put on hold, but only temporarily.

(If you click on the links below, and then make a purchase, some of them may put a few pennies into my pocket. Of course, there is no additional cost to you. I am always grateful to those of you who choose to […]

I Kind Of Miss Reading….

Winter Olympic viewing has been fun for the last week or so, but I kind of miss reading. Actually, I miss it a lot! The excitement of the games has been fun, but I’m actually longing to settle into my chair, put my feet up, and spend some serious time in a book. Next week […]

Reading and Stitching – Olympic Edition

Are you watching the Winter Olympics from Sochi? We are, and we’ve been enjoying every minute of it.

Lots of knitting and stitching happening during all of that time in front of the TV. I keep an embroidery and a knitting project in the basket next to […]

A Little Light Reading

As many of you know, I’m a rather eclectic reader, and I like to have three or four books, from different genre, going at the same time. I take my time through most non-fiction books, but given the right circumstances time-wise, I’ll plow right through a novel! There’s nothing like turning page after page of […]

The Weeks Just Fly By

The weeks just fly by, don’t they? January is almost over, and it seems like Christmas was just a couple of weeks ago. It seems to pass by so quickly, but as I look back at what all has been accomplished in these last weeks, the date on the calendar makes sense. We’re back to […]

It’s Been A Good Week!

It’s been a good week! A lot has been accomplished, not the least of which has been that I have finally finished piecing my ten year old grandson’s quilt.

I’m a very, very novice quilter, with only a couple of very simple table runners under my belt, before tackling the quilt for my oldest grandson […]

Progress Is Progress, No Matter How Small

Sometimes, I think, we can get discouraged when we aren’t accomplishing things quite as quickly as we’d like. We’re better served to look at what we have accomplished with gratitude.

I was just sure, when I posted last week about my creativity and reading goals, that I would have finished piecing the […]

Some Plans For The Year Ahead

I mentioned yesterday that I’d realigned my personal schedule (it’s more of a flow chart, really), to better reflect my personal priorities. As I looked back over the months that were 2013, I realized that I had not read nearly as much as I would have liked, and the time that I was able to […]
