crossing over


After a two week break from computer screens, I am not unlike Jack, above, pausing at the edge, wondering how to re-enter.

Happy New Year, all!

I look forward to another year of sharing ideas, inspiration, techniques, and support on the worldwide web!


I have spent a lot of time quilting and knitting by the fire over the last two weeks.


This was how we saw C. for the most part – on his way out – to job or friends.


I baked 12 varieties this year.  This is the third year in a row that I vowed I wouldn’t.











where-are-my-slippersEvery two-footed member of our family got slippers for Christmas.  I seriously think Jack is wondering why he didn’t get any.  It’s not the cookies he’s wondering about — it’s the missing set of slippers!

    How I have enjoyed looking through those photos Dee!

    …delight and envy are wrestling…

    …there are things that I miss dreadfully at this time.

    All the very best for 2013…

    Danny Happy new year to you too!!

    Ali – pausing is good, right? Alternating quiet with noise is good… And yes, my guys are awfully handsome !!

    Happy new year to you, too, Chris. Hope the missing eases.

    I love the look of your family Christmas and understand your hesitation but hope you are soon enjoying your creativity again. Your chair looks a happy place to be and your WIP is looking wonderful.

    looks like you had an eventful holiday. i love your chair with draped stitchery. i did the same with mine after my design wall fell to the ground. it might find its permanent place there when finished. joy and peace in the new year.
