Christmas Critter Tree

Christmas Critter Tree I was feeling a little down when my Christmas gifts to my folks weren’t delivered in Pennsylvania when they were supposed to. And of course, I couldn’t find my receipt with the tracking number. Finally, on Christmas Eve, Mom called to report that my box... Read more »

Paul’s Christmas Dove Wreath This past weekend, while I was busy sewing felt birds for my Maine Backyard Bird Tree and my Owl Wish You a Merry Christmas Wreath, Paul was working on a project using my Christmas Dove pattern.

Dandelion Seeds I love patterns. I see them everywhere in nature – in the clouds, in the marsh grass, in the boat-shaped petals of a Lupin, in winter’s drifts of snow. And in dandelion blowballs. At first glance, it’s just another weed gone to seed. I have a lot of... Read more »

Snow Rolling In

Snow Rolling In Thursdays are spent at the Women’s Health Resource Library in Milbridge. This is the view of the Narraguagus River from the window this morning. Another round of snow moving in, eclipsing the sunrise.   Thankfully this will just bring a few inches rather than... Read more »
