Number One Son Stops By

The phone rings; it's our son. He's in the area and wants to make us dinner in his Volvo semi. Soup's ON !~!

I love when he comes this close and we can go visit him.

Stay safe, my precious son.

Gifts for Friends

When a gift is needed and a quilt too much, I put together potholders for those who cook-which is most of our friends. Personalizing them is half the fun, or more !~!

I made two this week for two different men, both of whom are special to me.


Sander is a cook and the best dad I know. His mom became my friend many years ago when she was visiting from The Netherlands the summer Piper was born-2008. She and I have remained close and when she wanted a piece made out of one of Sander's favorite t-shirts, I was the artist she contacted. So I took the piece of t-shirt, backed it with Insul-Brite, then added a log cabin square with a personalization on the light blue log.

He will love it I am sure.


Next piece is for Chris, in Florida, who loves my niece, Heather. He, too, is a cook as well as a retired Paramedic/Firefighter, so when I came upon a pair of pj bottoms for a baby in the motif of the local fire department, I couldn't resist. Wedding gift? I've got it !~!

So that's what I have been doing this past week since I returned from my trip to see my sister.

What have you been up to?

Florida Bound

I leave in the morning for Florida to visit my soulmate for a week.  Distance has kept us apart for five years and were it not for FaceTime and Skype, we'd have flown sooner.

Getting older has compromised our health and made traveling difficult for us. But there comes a time when one says "I must" and that time is now.

See you in a week with pictures of tropical waters, sunsets, family and friends.
