another header photo

a cute little spool wallhanging devoted to my love of sewing.  the spools were hand pieced and, of course, the machine and its details hand appliqued. still on sewing hiatus but not for long i hope....

tart wannabe?

my throwback thursday photo is a summer one....ideal for an early summer day like today....me in a sundress, off the shoulder no less, and posing for dad probably, age 4 or 5....except for my sister, we 3 started out with platinum blonde hair that has darkened through the years.  my youngest brother had nearly white hair and it is now brown.....course, mom's hair is still nearly gray/white less with her dirty blonde locks, unbelievable at age 88....but it's genetic.  we think it's from the blueberries down east as my grandfather had salt/pepper hair until he died, even after chemo treatment for severe psoriasis when it fell out, came back white fluff, then back to its natural color.  ***  trying to keep busy and my mind occupied while continue to wait for an apartment....vacillate between resignation and rage, neither of which are productive, and fortunately don't last long. so thankful for health, my family, mobility and an income....life is good!

RIP little herb....

some time between 8-11 am yesterday morning, little herb went to that big sheep pen in the sky...no visible trauma or injury, seemed fine at 8 am....state vet will inspect and see if can determine cause....he is missed....
