Monday at home...

Gloom and fog (and frog---frosty fog) have been having an extended stay here along the river. The temperatures during the day have at least been somewhat of a treat...the bone shivering cold has left temporarily, I'm sure. This is the time of year I need an infusion of color...any color.

I received my pattern order from Crabapple Hill Studios on Friday, and immediately went out to pick up floss...even though I had plenty, I wanted "new" floss---just for the pure color inspiration. While I was out, I picked up the latest issue of Somerset Life---also filled with colorful inspiration. I love the coffee filter crafts---the pink/teastained wreath and kissing ball are definitely on my "to do" for Valentine's Day.

Love your flossy flowers! Color is pretty exciting in January when the entire world seems white. Hope that you'll show us your project one day.

I know I need some color this time of year too. I haven't made it to the bookstore yet to get the new issue of Somerset. They really have the lovelies magazines!

My name is Kathy, I work with Direct Buy and I am interested in purchasing a link on your fashion website.

Your site looks great and, if possible, I would love to be part of your blogroll. Would you please let me know how much you would charge for a basic text link on your homepage?

Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,


Catching Up

  It's been awhile...as usual, not much going on.  As I look through photos on my phone, I decided to do a little blog post. Last Monday...
