Knock Three Times On the Ceiling if You Read This

(Twice on the pipes means you don’t want to know.)
I’m determined to make my last post of 2005 partially quilt-related but you have to wait until the end to see what I mean. Until then, I feel the need to blather about a couple of other things.
We Are Family
My family has been trying to get […]

New Year’s Resolutions: Chosen by Computer! Yeah, Baby!

I must admit, I’m not normally one to make New Year’s Resolutions. I actually do have one of sorts this year, but more on that tomorrow. In the meantime, somewhere I ran across yet another silly computer quiz, this one supposed to tell you what your New Year’s Resolutions should be. You know I can’t […]

My Favorite Reads of 2005

In looking back over my ongoing log of the books I’ve read, I see that I’ve read almost 100 books this year (93 to be exact, although I expect to finish one more before tomorrow night). No wonder I didn’t finish very many quilts. Heh. Oh well, never mind.
Anyway, I decided to look over my […]

Cover Copy Caper ReCap

Update: The winners have been posted and my name isn’t there. But it was still fun to play!
A few days ago I mentioned the SBTB Spam Cover Copy Contest. I’d hoped they’d post the winners by this morning (although I do not have high hopes of my name making the list!), but I just […]

Big Red Flower and Big Blonde Hair

Check out what arrived in my mailbox yesterday afternoon:

“Red Amaryllis” by Frances Caple
Frances already showed a pic on her blog, but I thought I’d share one anyway in case anyone is stopping by here that didn’t see it there. This is the quilt I received in trade for the little angry hooker shoe quilt I […]

Self-Portrait Tuesday: Reflections, Week 4

For the final week of the Reflections theme, I’m sharing photos that are about
Nesting
I’m snug at home, surrounded by memories.
Peering into the mirror of a yard sale find dresser,
my mother’s antique lamp in front of me
and one of my childhood photos over my shoulder.

EDKSky wants to see what I’m doing.

As I look into a mantle […]

That’s Liff!

Did y’all have a good weekend? I did. Wanna hear all the boring details? Good! I knew you did!
When last we left our heroine (that would be me, because it’s my blog and if I can’t be the heroine on my own blog, where can I be it?…her?…uh…the heroine?), we’d just […]

Holiday Wish

DebR - December, 1962
I’ll say Merry Christmas to you all, since that’s what we celebrate here at the Richardson household, albeit more out of a sense of tradition than of religious conviction.
No matter which holiday you celebrate this month, I wish for you all a warm and wonderful time, spent with the people you love, […]
