These truly ARE the voices in my head.

How Are You Doing?


How are you doing friends?
Are you taking care of yourself, in all of this?
Self-care is so important,
and now,
even more so.
Make that cup of tea...
Step out back for some fresh air,
or open a window.
We can smell spring!
Spring is hope!
The promise of life renewed.
I thought long and hard
about picking my blog back up.
When reading Blogs, 
you can 
look into someone's world 
and their thoughts
on a deeper level.

I have always loved being in the car
when it is evening;
you can see inside someone's home,
 for that split second.
Are they are home from a long day of work, perhaps?
 The tv may be on, so perhaps they are catching up
on the news as supper cooks?
or just enjoying a show after dinner.
A bedroom light upstairs...
perhaps that would be someone young, 
working away on homework.
Snippets in a blink.
Lives we can imagine.
There is a feeling of comfort in that;
A soft place to land...

Our home is different
the past few weeks
and I'm sure yours is 
to a similar extent as well.
We have stay at home orders 
in Upstate NY.
The picture above
was my inspiration last Spring,
just before we left for Salem.
Now, it's time to stitch some up,
for Bewitching Peddlers in the Fall.
Creating has always been my self-care.
a place to immerse myself.
Whatever gives you peace and comfort,
make sure you do some of that!


is also home for me.
a favorite recipe, 
and tonight's dinner.
I added the link for you...
and will share how I do it.
I use a little more cinnamon and less salt. 
I just sprinkle it on each side.
I don't add the onion...
and for the sauce,
2 cans of Contadina
sauce with Italian herbs.
Easy, right?
we love it.

Later, this evening...
this sweet girl
will be offered on EHAG Emporium.
The link is to the left. 
9 pm (EST) sharp...
A nice little visit,
to see what the Halloween artists are up to,
in their homes.

~take care of yourselves~

Living the Covid Life

We are doing our best to flatten the curve.
Our world is strange now and scary.
I can't see my girls 
or my Mom.
I do my best to talk to them, 
through their anxieties
about everything.

New York State
has been declared a disaster.
Starting tomorrow,
we will be like Italy 
in our measures.

Tim and I started about 10 days ago.
We are older, 
and I have lung issues.

There is much we can do!

Come on, my stitching friends,
There are MANY masks needed.

Not just our state,
but perhaps yours as well.
Maybe not today,
but certainly
in the days to come.

Doctors, Nurses,
Nursing Homes,
Vets and Vet Techs,
Home Care Workers...

 Both of my daughters
wear masks every day, 
so I approached this
from a Mom point of view.
.....also, as a doll maker,
I don't have elastic.
That is hard to find as well.

My thread may not match~
I am using up scraps
and fabric 
that no longer serves my art.
The insides are lined 
with muslin.

Cotton fabric is perfect,
and these masks fit around your face
 quite well.

 am providing the link for this pattern.
It is not to be made for profit,
so please use it 
for it's intended use.

Stay safe my friends
flatten the curve!

Making My Way Back...

I can't believe it.
 I have been gone
from here,
for a year.
It was a tough one, 
my friends.
That is the truth.
I wanted to hop on, 
many times and write
....but I just couldn't.

As I am making my way back,
the world is struggling.
What can I do?...
Perhaps, this can be a soft place to land.
It is my hope that blogs such as mine,
will be dusted off and
become a safe haven,
at least for a bit.

Today, I am sharing 
a pattern for you to snag
on here and print.
If you know someone that doesn't
have a printer,
please copy one for them
 and mail them a gift.
 if you want it bigger or smaller...
go at it.
Play around with the design,
it is merely a guide,
