Happy New Year to one and all. I really do hope this is a joy-filled, healthy, prosperous year for all.

During the past few weeks approaching the new year, I have become self-reflecting. I love to read. I love to write. I love to do needle art. I turn 68 this month. I am not young, however, I am not feeling old either. I realize that I am considered an elder. I need to share what I have learned over the years, some stories, and some experiences.

I am back. This blog has been around for awhile. I have written on it inconsistently in the past. I feel the pull to get back to it.  I write quite frequently but have not posted here. I am sorry for my lack of sharing. So much goes on in life day by day. But, it is the same for all of us. It is easy to make excuses. There really are none.

2017 Update

2017 is upon us, and we are already two months into the year. I am happy to announce that I am earnestly working away on my blog/website and writing every day. It feels good to be working away at it.

Unfortunately, life does not always happen the way we wish.  Life threw some curve balls, and it has taken this long to get back on track. I prefer not to give explanations at this time.

Consequently, I decided to move some of the content from the needlework website over to this one. I feel that it will be easier to maintain only one site as opposed to two. There will be times when I will have limited internet as well because of life’s changes. I will do the best that I can to make regular posts and grow the dictionaries and other content.

So, stay tuned, please check back regularly to see what I have to share.

Inspiration

Do what is good for your soul.
Do what is good for your soul!

What do You Love to Do?  Be inspired by what you love!

Anyone who is following their heart and doing what is important to them inspires me. I don’t think that it matters what it is that a person does as long as it fills them with joy.

When you have time on your hands, and you want to do something soul fulfilling what do you choose to do? Thinking about this helps you to figure out what is meaningful to you. Find the time to do more of what you love. Continue reading “Inspiration”

In Memory of my Mother on Mother’s Day.

My mom
In memory of my mom who encouraged me to sew, embroider, knit and crochet.

I remember encouragement. Whatever I made was wonderful in my mother’s eyes.

This post celebrates my mom. She passed on two and one-half years ago now. I remember her every day. There is much I could write about, but I think I will focus on her encouragement with the needle arts.
