It’s been nearly seven months since I’ve posted here. I apologize for the long hiatus. Last year was very challenging for me and I found many of my creative outlets simply too much to maintain.
However, this morning when I opened my Facebook page–I found this little piece of adorableness (is that a word? if not, it should be!) waiting to make me smile. She is absolutely lovely from her hand-dyed hair to her tiny little toes. Tara spent many hours making Aurora—and it shows! This doll is perfect in every way. Aurora is definitely one of my favorite things.
I knew when I read Tara’s post that I had to share it with all of you.
I swore I’d never use my blogs to raise money…but that was then…and this is now. My beloved son-in-law was in a tragic accident last weekend.
The picture is of Roy and Sophie, his just-turned-one-year-old granddaughter.
We ask for your positive thoughts and prayers for his recovery. Thank you.

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted here for such a long time. Health issues have reduced my energy levels and I’ve had to focus on things that must be done, relegating the tasks that I can put off to a back burner. I ask your understanding and want to let you know that I’ll be back to regular posts as soon as I am able.
Don’t give up on me…
Last month I lost a dear furry-friend. Baxter was a puppy when I first met him. He lived a long and full life that ended with a sudden stroke. I’m glad that his final moments were brief and that he was with the people who loved him.
I miss him…..this is my tribute to “B” ~~~
B was “one of my favorite things”
*I put this together very quickly and was unable to obtain photo credits . If one of them is yours, please let me know and I will immediately give you credit or remove it at your request.
why I’ve posted so little here lately….here’s the scoop!
I was busy making pincushions for my new Etsy shop The Queen’s Pincushion. (it’s listed as thequeenspincushion — all one word — at Etsy.com)
I have written about it on The Purple Sweater and my newest blog….The Queen’s Pincushion (of course!), so I won’t go into details here….but I will share a few of my favorite pincushions with you!
Wild & Wonky
Cotton Candy…my first sale!!
I’ll be making new pincushions and posting them weekly….and my daughter’s wedding is coming up, so I’ll share a few of the decorations I’m working on for her…and whatever other manner of wonderfulness that I come across on my adventures surfing the internet. See you soon!
