Our little Jerry is so excited. He has seedlings at long last. To the window for sunlight he takes them. But what will become of them? We shall see...

A new computer and different software has me chugging along. Please forgive my absence.  However, this little trio of bins just made its way off the machine. They are a custom order for someone special. 

It seems she needs to tidy up her craft room too.

I am happy to report my latest pattern has me happy at last.

A pattern that squarely sits and stands tall without support.

A favorite...feed sacks and linen.

Handles and pockets. Hexagons and stitches. These could hold any number of things. Hope she likes them?

Over the weekend a big box arrived! Big plans involving Christmas for this amazing vintage Brach Candy store container. In the meantime it is perfectly cat sized!

So cute Renee! The fabric buckets came out great. She will love them. Good luck with the new computer-it's such a pain to get to know everytning all over again. Frustrating-but hopefully the switch won't be too bad. Good luck!
