Celebrating Number Two Son

My Grandmothering heart is full and my Mothering heart is hopeful. With 5 full days to soak up THE Grandchildren, I was a very happy camper.  Some say, that THE Grandson has me wrapped around his little finger, but if a darling boy asks me to play croquet, or trains, or read books or play […]

Imagination

It takes a LOT of imagination to tackle restoring an old house.   We must ‘imagine’ that we will finish someday.

The Purple Quilt

Graduation time is coming and the purple quilt is done!  Our church has only a few graduating seniors this year, so I was happy to be able to contribute a quilt for this special girl.

There’s a new little fish in the family. My family name is Fisher. When you’re family name is Fisher, you are susceptible to things with fish on them…especially fabric.

My Loving Spouse and I figured out a vital truth on our trip to Cannon Beach last week.  Travel is better, if you pack a quilter.  Seriously, my need for fabric took us to places we would have never gone to otherwise. I will be making a quilt for one of our graduating seniors this […]
