About Me

My photo
Shoreline, CT, United States
I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

I have put all my UQP's aside for now; and re-tooled my room to include a 
"Scrap Station"....Thom bought me a real typewriter for Christmas so that 
I can type directly onto my card inserts (being the computer challenged
person I am!!).  

I have done quite a few spreads (2 sheets L and R); this one is a memory
of little Fiona--of course, Grand'mere knows she's a "big girl" now--no more "goo-goo ga-ga"!! LOL

This page includes twins Greg & Connor--"then and now" with we two Grandparents holding the twins...and Steven pulling his hair to dispel the "crying"...
I love juxtaposing these times.  Here you can see the 4x6 vertical pocket arrangements--the other page has 4 (4x6) horizontals and 4 (3x4) slots....
I am so loving this--I hope to get all my pix Out of The Shoebox!!!! and into some meaningful layouts.

I am also spraying and creating my own little tags and cards and embellishments...

And finally--here is a picture of our deck this morning--OH NO........

To all my quilting buds--I am just taking a little break--feeling overwhelmed at the moment and my arthritis (shoulder, arm etc ad nauseum!! ugh) is playing up, too.
I am still following and leaving occasional comments...hugs to all

'Kota kept getting into the action....  ;----))) great memories...

This is what I've been up to -- scrapping our lives.  For some reason I cannot fathom I feel compelled to scrap this year of 2014...and my quilting "Mojo" has
gone into hiding...so  this is where I am at right now...
Hope you enjoyed the photos...Hugs to all Julierose, La Blageuse
