Weeding Through the Junk


Posted on Feb 28, 2006

I have been trying to clean my art room for the past couple of weeks.  Since I’m a pack rat by nature, I have to purge every once in awhile.  It’s very painful for me to get rid of stuff, but It’s makes my husband happy.  He doesn’t understand how I need to hold onto cardboard, bits of ribbon, empty containers, etc. for future art projects.  Through my cleaning, stuff has ended up in our...

Quilt Monday

Ever since Angry Chicken started Quilt Mondays, I have always wanted to post my quilt.  This is the quilt that my Aunt made for my wedding.  She is a Master Quilter and has been listed in several quilt books.  When I got engaged, I asked my aunt if she would make me a quilt for my present.  I was so happy when she agreed.  I really had no idea what I wanted at all.  I let her decide everything.  She...

My friends and family know that I do not have a green thumb.  I love plants, but just don’t have the touch to make them thrive.  My cats love to eat plants.  They also make it tricky to keep plants alive.  I currently only have 2 plants in my house.  For some reason, they are doing really well.  Barry Mandarin is my baby.  My sister bought him for me as a present years ago.  He sits in our...
