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.

One more row to
pin and sew

Start of a hand-dyed

Middle of Girl With Braids...
Isn't she pretty??
I am really enjoying 
the practice of 
using my multi-placer 
(more than one diamond at a time)
on her...
And look what my son, Jeff, brought me 
last Sunday
when he and his family 
visited for the first time since
 the pandemic began
They are so pretty;
Situated right near my seat
in our tv room

I love this one with the
small green stripe...


Here is what the grandgirls were
doing that day

working it:)))

Gosh they grew so much since
we last saw them...
Fiona will be 10 this coming October
Double digits already!!

We had a lovely visit--so 
wonderful to sit and catch up...

Fi and Willa 
We love you
Today I will be doing the weekly food
run to the Big Y;

Tonight will be "breakfast for supper"
so easy-peasy...

Hugs mid-week

  1. We always enjoyed breakfast for supper when I was a child. It was usually when we had run out of meat and Mother made do with eggs.

  2. What a great visit! So happy for you. The girls are so grown up and very beautiful.

  3. So glad you had a good visit. We did breakfast for dinner last night and I had a mushroom and spinach omelette for lunch! The red and white is looking great and love the hand dyed project. I need to ask Em about her diamond project and get her started on it.

  4. Wonderful things you're showing. And the most wonderful....your family. I'm looking forward to meet my youngsters in some weeks now.

  5. Such a wonderful visit from your family, I'm sure you were over the moon to see them after all this time!

  6. I am in love with your red and white project, Julierose! So pretty! The yellow tulips are pretty, too, and so wonderful you got to see your family. I'm hoping my tulips survive the snow we keep getting.

  7. Pretty tulips, pretty grown girls, and pretty diamond painting

  8. Your granddaughters are so pretty! You're making great progress on your red and white quilt. The yellow tulips are so delicate looking. The diamond painting looks complicated!

  9. Yay for the family visiting!!! I have obviously missed some previous posts, the red and white is lovely and your dyed fabrics are gorgeous. Love your tulips.

  10. So happy to see that you had a family visit. Your granddaughters are adorable!

  11. Lovely projects, and a lovely family visit!

  12. The red and white squares quilt is going to be gorgeous!
    So are the flowers!
