WIP Wednesday – Duckling Quilt

After having my very own tiny human, I feel like quilting has really been on the back burner for me, but I recently got a chance to get down to my sewing space and finish up the quilt top that is supposed to be my daughter’s baby quilt.  Hey – maybe if I’m lucky I’ll…

Mildred Jane at 11 Months

Mildred is 11-months-old and becoming quite the big girl. She follows the hubs and me around the house, tho for her, crawling is mostly a way to get somewhere so that she can pull up on something and stand. She hasn’t figured out walking yet, but she likes to shake her booty when there’s music…

Bookish Questions – A Bookish Job?

A book/writing related job that you would love to do? When I was little, I always thought it would be fun to be a librarian, but then I discovered that they don’t just get to sit in the library and read all day.  It was real work, and those librarians don’t get to read all…
