I am a reformed stamper. I went from being a stampin’ up! demonstrator, stamping any flat or kind of flat surface I could, to stamping almost nothing. But I still love rubber stamps. I have four big bins of stamps, at least 50 different ink pads (that are sadly all getting drier by the day), […]
I’m not a huge golf fan, but I am a big underdog fan. One hole left…Rocco’s up by one, and in a bunker. My fingers are crossed! I should be working, but I’m watching the live stream on usopen.com.
I saw Sex in the City on Monday night. My sweet husband came home a little early so I could take myself out to a movie. I have been to exactly one movie in the past 2.5 years. So this was a real treat. First shock: ticket price. $10.50! What? That’s crazy. Second shock: food […]
I was so disappointed when I got home last night. All day, I thought it was Wednesday, and I was super excited for the Top Chef finale. Turns out it was only Tuesday and I had nothing to watch. But today IS Wednesday – so tonight I have both Top Chef and So You Think […]
BettyNinja left me a nice comment saying I should write a tutorial for my appliqué aprons.

I checked Joanns today and the girl didn’t know what the heck I was talking about. Anyone know? I did my first tshirt surgery today – photos coming soon!
I somehow became the webmaster for my quilt guild and I learned a new skill! The day before our quilt show this year, we’re hosting Eleanor Burns and her USO Quilt Show. I set it up so we can sell tickets on our website! This may not sound like a big deal, but I didn’t […]
I know – I go on and on about This American Life. But they’re doing a little drive for donations because they’re trying to keep the free podcasts – that half a million people download every week – from costing Public Radio International any money. So I’m happy to pay a couple bucks to keep […]
My friendship group is making an applique apron quilt for the auction at our annual quilt show. We all made two blocks. I finally finished the embellishments on mine – I kept them pretty simple, but I’m happy with the results. The apron patterns are from Lori Holt’s Apron Club pattern. I don’t think she […]
