A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

No pictures, at least from me

I don't suppose it would be of the least bit of interest to you that I have spent the better part of two days at the spa.  Getting a steam treatment.  I outta have the BEST complexion going!  Even better, it didn't cost me a thing. 

Oh, yeah...
maybe I should mention that the
steam treatment was courtesy
of my very own steam iron?

So, instead of me showing you the pile of ironed pieces of denim and such that I have dealt with over the past while, I will send you off to visit some interesting things round and about cyberspace.

1.  Mary Corbet has an interesting article HERE about the care of vintage linens.  She says they were made to be used, and she's quite right.  Knowing how to take care of them might just make you want to display those treasures you have stuffed in a drawer somewhere....or.....even (gasp) do as I do and cut them up for use in your creations!

2.  Vicki of 2BagsFull has extended the deadline for her Josephine's Children charitable project to Dec. 15th.  She is collecting crafting supplies to send to children in Uganda and you still have time to donate some of your excess crafting things to an extremely good cause.  Go HERE to read more.   I lightened my stash a little and I challenge you to do the same.

3.  I know I've sent you to see some of the magnificent embroidery that is done by Michele Carragher and I know you will enjoy seeing even more.  Go HERE to be amazed!!

Today the quote is from Bob Dylan.... "A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do"

Hi! Ironing. I've been wrestling with my vacuum cleaner, cleaning the brush and filters, whew. Then I couldn't get it running again and had to call the support center, but they were very helpful and it's up and running now.
Michele Gallagher, amazing embroidery and design.
