Well, this is my largest project to date (not difficult, just large). I know we will think this fabric is hideous in a somewhat short period of time, but it’s fun for now (especially in our bland bathroom). I thought it would be difficult due to the shape of the shower, but it wasn’t bad [...]
I have two things to share with you: 1. Thank you for the $60 credit you gave us the last two months. I really appreciated the $26 bill. I wasn’t sure what it was for, but I was unsure (ethically) if I should ask you or not. Now that my bill is back to normal, [...]
When we moved, my first sewing project was going to be making napkins. Wellllll….it took me a little while to get around to it. A month or two ago, I made 4 pretty shoddy napkins because I was tired of being out of napkins. Finally last week, I buckled down and made some decent ones [...]
…but I’m thinking vegetables. I’ve never started seeds before, but I’m going to try this year. I ordered from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, and they are here! If it doesn’t work out, I’ll just buy seedlings.

After their most exciting announcement of their upcoming family addition (baby in August!), we decided to go [...]
…when you’re down to your last butternut squash. That’s right, folks, we went from to I must admit that a few of them went bad while they sat around, so probably 3-4 went straight to the compost. This guy was the only one that had a major blemish, so I’m a little worried about it, [...]
Two weekends ago, the Fykes came to visit us. We spent a couple of fun evenings at a condo “near” Winter Park that we got at the YES auction. We spent the first day skiing, but they haven’t had much snow out there in a while. We hit numerous icy spots! Due to the weather, [...]
