Sewing tchotchkese...

We all have our sewing machines and studios that we use to make wonderful quilts. They are chocked full of the latest and greatest tools of the trade, guaranteed to help us make the job easier.

But, what about those sources of inspiration that caught our eye in a shop, or were given to us by friends. These miniatures meet me at the kitchen sink which makes me smile when I see them. It's nice to have sewing inspiration everywhere...yes, my DH, I am taking over the whole

We're going to NYC...

One of the perks of my husband's job, is that he gets to travel to some pretty interesting places, at least they are to me. Luckily, I'm available and can accompany him right now. It's exciting to be going to NYC this weekend. I hope it's snowing. I will take my camera and take lots of pictures. Snow seems to help create some interesting pictures.

We've gone once before with our two daughters, but, it was pre-9/11. We mainly walked and walked and walked, but, really enjoyed it. Doubtless, this trip-minus the daughters, we will wear ourselves out walking everywhere and my poor hubby will have to be all smiles for meetings on Tuesday. But, we will have a little more money to spend and hopefully we will walk off all those calories we plan to try

Happy Valentines day!!

Chelsea is studying to be a geologist.

Ah well, at least the real birds like to come to our house to
