Susan Moved.
Our Mother Moved. And is moving again.
Nancy drove cross country from California to Minnesota for a visit.
Georgia drove cross country from California to Minnesota for a visit.

(Two separate visits - had they been on the same route they could have waved as they passed each other coming and going.)

That's just the highlights from the past few weeks.

Kids, sisters, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sons, daughters . . . . . . . .

It's the same everywhere. Issues. Relationships. Communication. Drama. Comings and goings.

And, we hope . . . . . laughter.

Our customers love this Dysfunctional Family bag.
The fabric is very hard to find and we have a short supply.
A unique bag.

Night Thoughts

It's raining outside.

I love the sound of the rain drops on my window.

I'm listening to a CD, made for me by a friend. Yo Yo Ma. Lovely piece with vocal - "Simple Gifts."

I performed that many times, but, alas, not with Yo Yo Ma.

My studio is coming together. Too many things for my scaled down room.

Excited to get back to work.

Sweet boy Jordan. Can't decide his favorite: the sound of rain, or Yo Yo Ma.

I Googled "Patriotic Photos" this morning, thinking I'd find some nice picture for the blog.

Found It!!

See how my mind goes to fabric??

No, we don't have this fabric, it's just a photo I found online. If you find it anywhere, let us know.

Here in Minnesota, it is not looking like a very nice day for picnics, grilling, swimming and fireworks. It was pouring down rain when I woke up, is now gray and cloudy and SO HUMID, it feels like a tropical rainforest.

Have fun today. I'm cranking up the air conditioning.
