Sewing Through Change

Keeping My Center of Gravity. It is interesting because, almost daily, I get the gift of conflicting opinions. I live in a predominately conservative community that is located in a predominately liberal state. Because of this, I get to see a wide range of views about what happens in our world. Especially these past fewContinue reading “Sewing Through Change”

It’s a Journey, Even When You Are At Home….

I Should Have Known Better…..The Heartbreak of Cheap Fabric.

Good Morning! First let me clarify, when I talk about “cheap fabric” I’m not talking about inexpensive fabric.

How the GG became a NESP** (translation below)

The Missing McGree Returns! And I sewed…..

Good Morning! This is Moses. He is Mitzie-the-Sewing-Kitty’s litter mate. I got Mitzie and Moses around 2014-15 while I was filling in as principal for Tri City Elementary. One of the third grade teachers, Natalie, brought a basket of kittens as “writing prompts” for her class. Natalie was a genius! First, she got 8 andContinue reading “The Missing McGree Returns!

Do Good; Spread Hope; Fear Not

Good Morning!! Did you see the Pink Supermoon on Tuesday? It was pretty incredible, huh? I did a little research and found out that the full moon in April is always known as the Pink Moon.
