Thursday Night

We had it all planned. We were going to be alone, watch the World Series (what a game to the edge of my seat I was.) Eddie decided he wanted a treat, so he went to get ice cream. While he was gone the doorbell rang. It was Spencer my nephew, he needed help with his chemistry. I love Spence but COME ON. I guess he though since Eddie has a degree in Chem Eng he could do it for him Oh I mean help him.
Soooooo I went upstairs to my sewing room to finish a project and watch the game.
Spencer left a happy man. Home work all done.  I don't know who did it.  It's better that way.

Dear Daddy

It has been 18 years since you were called home. It seems like it was yesterday and a million years ago too.  I miss your smile and your gentle nature, you never said a bad word about or to anyone. Remember when we were little and played upstairs making a lot of noise, you were sitting in your chair and reading the paper. Every once in a while you would shout out " Quiet down I'm coming up there" then you stomped your feet in a sitting position and we would laugh.  We knew you weren't coming after us. We loved it.  Baseball and BBQ chicken on Sundays. That's how we learned  how the game was played.  I miss you every day.  I love you Daddy.
Till we meet again.


I have been having so much fun decorating for HALLOWEEN. Its all over the house but the Porch is what has given me the most joy.  In the picture includes an old screen window, antique metal kitchen step chair, grapevine wreath from my back yard, metal star, goose gourd, lg pumpkin, sm pumpkin, leaf garland, and the BOO made from a DI picture find. I had a great time putting this together.
Still finishing up Swap projects

The Game

Well What can I say, The Cards threw the game away.  You can take the girl out of St. Louis but you can't take the St. Louis out of the girl.
Gus's Pretzels,  Soulard Market and Vess Soda.  These are a few of my favorite things.
Great Dinner Spring Rolls and Asian Salad but then there was dessert lemon bars and bread pudding.   Thank You Lori You are a great COOK!!!!!!!!

What a Fun Week

I really do not care for the Baseball season. It creates to much anxiety, But when my Home Town Team is in the Play Offs and then the World Series I'm watching.  All last week end and through the week my sister and brother in law have come over to watch the games. The first night we had Stadium Food.  Hot dogs, Nachos, Soft Pretzels. NO BEER we don't drink and Eddie made some KILLER brownies. The Pop Corn had to wait for another night and no Peanuts.  All in all it was a great evening.  And so have the rest of the games been fun.  It was a great game, even though it was in Texas.  Yeah, St Louis is my Home Town!! we lived there 45 years raised the children there. St Louis is a Baseball Town.  When I see the sky line of the city it makes me home sick a little.  I would not want to take on the humidity any more though.
I almost have all my projects done for the Swaps. I don't think I will take on three at a time again.  I like to be very liner but with three at a time I found myself  going Global.
I will post pictures soon.  Remember " All Ways Making Something"

Table Runner Swap

I have been working on the Table Runner for my partner in the swap at Shawnees Flirty Apron Swap.  It a fun and different swap all though I love Aprons, this will be fun.  However I am not a Quilter! I have been sewing for 40 years and never attempted a Quilt.  So I have come up with a different idea for my table Runner. I am using a different medium. It is working well or so far so good anyway. My family think I am a genius. ( I trained them that way ) In a day or two I will post some sneek peeks.
Till then........... Always making something.

I love Swapping

I love to swap It is so much fun.  For the Country Pleasures Apron Swap I got the greatest Partner Her name is Cheryl she lives in Wisconsin and she is fabulous.  This was a great swap because you got to contact your partner and swapped with each other. now I have a new friend to share sewing ideas with.

The Zombie Doll Swap from Yarnigras Swapper. Oh my gosh it was so fun. I have never made a doll. It was great, my daughter and daughter in law all did a doll too.
We sent ours off last Friday I hope my partner likes her. I can't wait to get mine.


I love reading all the blogs. They inspire me. I have actually had some changes come over me from all of your inspiration. I had given up on holidays after the kids grew up and left I did not even attempt holidays. Our grandchildren live in Yuma so most of the time  they were not around. The holiday thing goes back many years and to explain it I would need a Psychotherapist present.  My house is now decorated  for Halloween.  To night my husband said to me that he was so happy to see that I was getting into the spirit of things.  So thank all of you for the inspiration, and my house is so darling.
