Bear (the doggie)

With summer coming and temperatures in the 90's today, I decided that my little doggie, Bear would be much more comfortable with a "buzz". Not to mention the mess of shedding hair we would be avoiding. He was a perfect gentleman at the groomer's and doesn't seem to know he looks different. He hasn't looked at himself in the mirror yet though. So here are before and after pictures of Bear.

Happy Mother's Day

Tracy, Mom, Me and Paige 1995

Mom, my sister and me in 1955 (I'm the one with the all-day lollipop)

For everyone who is a mother, and everyone who has a mother (which I think is about everyone), Happy Mother's Day. I'm fortunate to live close to my mom and one of my two daughters. I spent the afternoon having dinner at a restaurant in Sacramento with mom and dad, the hubster, my Paigie and her beau. Mom received, from me, a digital picture frame which I pre-loaded with old and new family photos. I'm pretty sure she was thrilled with it. Miss Paigie gifted mom and me with gift bags full of delightful smelling stuffs for our bodies. Yummy shower gels, lotions, oils and all that kind of good stuff. Tracy and Tyson (daughter and her hubster in Tennessee) had their adorable baby son, Sullivan dedicated in church Mother's Day morning. I can't wait to see the video, the next best thing to being there.

The picture above is my mom, sister and me in 1955. I'm the little one with the all-day-sucker. Hmmm, no wonder I had so many fillings. I have a younger brother but he was born after my grandfather, the photographer, disassembled his darkroom. So, not so many pictures of him.

How much is enough?

Quite a lot of people are afflicted with this, hmmm, disease, syndrome, disorder, penchant? I'm not sure but I for one, can't come out of a fabric store with at least two or three pieces of fabric, even if it's only 1/2 yard. And, ribbons? Don't even ask. Next time I'll show you my ribbon stash. But, in the meantime, I'll share my fabric stash. Now, this is actually just the tip of the iceberg of my stash. When we put our house in on the market, I put about four times this amount into storage. There, I have whole bolts of flannels, fleece, terrycloth, tapestries and more. The fabrics pictured are cottons. I also have a stash of frilly, silks, tulle, satins, etc. just waiting for the perfect fairy bear or ballerina bear or, who knows, I might even make a doll or two. I know quilters who have about a gazillion pieces of fabric so I know this doesn't seem like much.
They're so pretty, I feel I have to display them like art. Here they are:

I'm baaaaaaack

I arrived home April 29th after a month long stay in Tennessee visiting Tracy and Tyson (TNT) and Sullivan (see their blog at TNTfamilytree.blogspot.com,link to the left). What a great time I had !!! I had such mixed feelings leaving. Who knows how long before I see my grandbaby again. I hope I can get back there some time in the summer. I'm going to miss TNT too. But I was getting a little homesick. And . . . I had a brand spankin' new computer waiting for me at home.

So I'm home, my computer is screamin' fast and I've hooked up a webcam and signed up for Skype to keep in touch.

Now, back to the business of creating.
