Can you see me?

Look closely....under the blue is where I have been spending the past few days. I am actually still on our balcony on the 42nd floor....but we will be back on the beach soon!


I felt I should explain my absence. ;)

I am trying out another app. This is just a test.


Pillow Trick

As you can see I am posting this blog with my iPad.....and I am very disappointed in the results.

But enough whining (for now).

Today I am going to share my pillow trick. I often do this at retreats.

When I have been sitting for a little too long, I usually need some extra cushion or support. So I slip my pillowcase over the back of my chair.

I decided I needed a little extra support on my sewing chair this I pulled out my pillow trick.

I may just leave it there!

Pottery People

I know...I have been pretty quiet here this past week.
Lots of fun family stuff going on....
and the sun is shining!!!!

I recently took these photos to send to an old friend.
We met 'back in the day' through Bible camp.
Chopper is a potter.

These are two of my favorite pieces of pottery in my house.
I took the photos at this angle so Chopper (aka Darrel Bowman) would be able to remember he made them!  I did mention we met 'back in the day'.  ;)

You don't forget someone when you are using their practical art.

This honey pot has been in my kitchen(s) these past 25 years.

Chopper/Darrel took a 20 year hiatus from his pottery business.
Now he is back!
He told me he has some honey pots coming up.
So I thought I would share his etsy link just in case you are one of us 'Pottery People'.

Hiding Place

We have a treat drawer in the kitchen.
Family and frequent visitors know about it.
They can help themselves anytime.

Up in my sewing room I have my own little sweet stash.

Some cleverly hidden....

and some out just for the sake of 'cuteness'.

Do you hide your treats too?

Fun With Yarn

I am linking up with Ginny again this week.
One of the projects on my needles are the Baby Socks found in  More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.
I am hoping these fit a 6 month old little girl that we will soon get to meet.

The book, The Best of the Sanctuary, is actually a series of devotionals that were published first in 1949 for the days during Lent.
This copy, from 1963, has been updated.
This was today's devotional.

I finally took the plunge and ordered a yarn swift and ball winder!

It was so much fun!

Too bad I didn't have more yarn to wind!

Wheel Planter

My Mom sent me this photo of a wheel planter.
Wouldn't it make a fun Herb Garden?

Home Alone

I have been alone for 11 days and 11 nights.

Friendie did come to play.

It snowed twice.

I only left my house 3 times.

My days were full.

The nights were peaceful.

But I am glad my family is back!!!
