1. I sewed 40 yarmulkes for my cousin’s wedding! OK, not all this week, but I finished the order. I learned how as I went along. I found a tutorial, but it was little more than a pattern, so there was a lot of trial and error. Here is my Ian modeling the first one.… Continue reading Pansy’s Seven Quick Takes
Primer mixing: pound-foolish?
The Beltway Mosses are happily settling into our new home (which needs a nickname, I suppose). My husband’s after me to hang pictures, but there are two rooms I want to paint before I hang pictures. So it’s off to Lowe’s this morning, coupons and paint chips in hand. Here’s my question: I have about… Continue reading Primer mixing: pound-foolish?
Peony’s seven quick takes
1. Pansy’s computer is broken and that’s why we haven’t been hearing from her. She is taking things day by day, and greatly appreciates your prayers. 2. This weekend, we’ll be celebrating the seventh anniversary of the blog! Any nominations for favorite posts from the past to reprint? 3. Look what I am having for… Continue reading Peony’s seven quick takes

Peony needs a new pot
I looked in my little saucepan and noticed that the non-stick coating long ago ceased to stick to the pot (hopefully it’s not sticking to our innards either). So it’s time to go pot shopping. I think I’m done with non-stick (too fragile — I want to use a whisk, darn it) and I’m growing… Continue reading Peony needs a new pot

I actually do have a lot to say about many of the current events, but I feel it’s redundant: “OctoMom-nuts; Chimp Lady-nuts; Obama’s economic policy-nuts.”… Continue reading Small Success Thursday
I Think My Children Saved Me
Many members of my family have “issues” (like every other family), and of course gossip stems from these various issues (although I guarantee these days I am the source of plenty of fodder-actually I know I am as I stumbled in a conversation about me and “all those kids”, but that’s another story). One common… Continue reading I Think My Children Saved Me
Warning: Don’t Try This At Home
Trying to be fun and creative while pregnant. I am almost sure my morning sickness is starting to abate…finally! I no longer experience sea sickness from trying to concentrate on things like books, or sewing. I have been able to do my daily minimum of three loads each day. Although don’t ask me to plan… Continue reading Warning: Don’t Try This At Home
