You too would do it! Yellow Gingham FOREVER!

...you know make something so you would never forget those special
pets who brought years of joy to your life.

As I was thinking of a new GINGHAM ( RBD) ottoman,
I could not think of any other colour but YELLOW...
 It represents the warmth that came into our lives when we first brought
T-cup and Sumatra into our HOME and HEARTS.

We have your BACK. - always stay humble and kind



It took me a bit to complete my chair as with all that stapling, I kinda bruised the palm of my hand...
so I had to lay off completing her back...But I am sooooo much better, and I got a Magnetic Tack Hammer, so  am well on my way for more upholstering...

This chair has fit in well in our home...and nothing says happiness to me like Yellow ANYTHING...
it is a great colour for an accent chair...and with a few coats of Scotch Guard, no worries about our
cats siting on it...

No surprise that Cori had a similar chair, so similar they look like they are related....We can't tell you how many times that has happened, that we have purchased the same thing, or found something similar within days of one another....Look at what Cori did with her chair....don't you just love it in turquoise/aqua...

Can we talk.....Telephone STANDS?






I have been searching for this EXACT Telephone Stand for 4 years..
it is the exact one my Nanny had in her hallway when I was a Teen.
My Nanny and Grandpere had it in the hallway as it was in the middle of the house
so we could access the phone halfway from the front door and kitchen..
In those days, you were pretty lucky to have a phone, there was no such things
as everyone with their own CELL as today...

I so remember party lines, if I was to call anyone, I was instructed to say 
"excuse me, can I make a call or can you tell me how long you will be"
of course all in French...

I am so IMMATURE!



I still have this fascination about dolls, I suppose being IMMATURE
is my lot in life....

Barbies and Poppy Parkers have somehow slipped back into my life AGAIN.
I have a very small collection... They sit upon a shelf in my office...
I had Mary had a little lamb for a few years and still not sure 
why I ever purchased her...I suppose down deep I saw possibilities...
Ohh and I like Marys.....

NO more counting CROSS STITCH and 8 floss only....July's Paper Ladies collection


Can you imagine this...NO MORE COUNTING CROSS STITCHES?
I have been cross stitching for decades and I've found as the years 
have zipped by, I have less patience for counting... 

I got so dizzy going back and forth with the chart
and changing floss every 5-6 cross stitches, I started to experiment...

I have simplified it all now...instead of purchasing 20-40 floss colours
for each pattern, NOW I use less than 6-7 floss...and  1 variegated to resemble a summer  knit !
and I colour within the LINES....all  the how to's are included in all of our  patterns.

Instead of months completing a project, I can now complete an 8 x 11 block
in say -a week to 10 days..!

Paper Ladies JULY 2016! and GREEN(s) with ENVY!


We did it...we came out with a NEW Paper LADIES Collection...
( we were not sure about doing another collection - and then it struck us...
Let US HAVE THEM RESTING.....)

Cori, just let me know she just finished hers....all in applique...( she hasn't shared yet though) 
- I am still busy with STITCHING in such an easy way of 
cross stitching, it is taking me a bit more time...

I will have mine completed by tomorrow!
