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.

                                Happy (Rainy) Mother's day to all you Mommies out there!!

                                        I hope you get to talk to or see your children today....

                                                Missing my Mom on this, the 1st Mother's day
                                                     since she has been gone....;-((((

But, we had a whole lot of them together and I cherish many good memories...

I am sitting and sipping my morning cup of java and slowly entering the world of the wide "awakers.".lol

Still no sewing to show you..but here are a few pix of my mystery book shelf for your bibliophiles out there...
{.I used to bring a book (we both loved a good mystery) when I visited Mom, and read to her--she loved that and would doze off and dream......}

These are my "keepers" that i have read a few times and will most likely read again.....
I hope you will have a relaxing day --i know I'll be reading:the Carolyn Graham 
Barnaby series: "Faithful unto Death" (2nd in the series...) 

hugs to you all

Julierose, La Blageuse (bookworm-euse)


  1. i love a good mystery to, hugs on mothers day

  2. Happy Mother's Day to you too Julierose. This is the first Mother's Day without my dear mum as well and like you, I remember the good times we had and being grateful for the many years we had together. Hugs

  3. books are a great way to relax and escape.
    hugs to you on your first Mothers Day without Mom. She is hugging you from Heaven I am sure.

  4. So happy to read that you read some of your books over again, I do that! I have many favourites. Hope you were able to spend time with your memories on this day.

  5. Happy Mother's Day I am currently reading Quilt by Association by Arlene Sachitano.

  6. I love reading but my problem is that once I start a book, I have a hard time putting it down!

  7. I hope you had a nice Mother's Day although I'm sure you missed your mom. I read books over again too. They have to be really good to want to read them again!
