My Blog

Join me in figuring out "what now?"

Rainy January Night

on 22 January, 2018

I don’t write here as often as I used to, but then again, I am writing three blogs, trying to keep my status on Quora and doing the craft work, job hunting and being a mom. Sometimes not enough hours in a day.

But, the weather warmed up (for a winter day) and was in the 60’s today, so instead of snow, we’re having a thunderstorm. Ah, the one thing I don’t regret moving away from California and back to the Midwest. I love a good thunderstorm.

I’ve just recently stumbled across a contest from Instructables that I am intent on winning. It is called ‘Sew Warm’ and so far the entries are things like mittens, scarves, etc. I figure one of my legendary denim quilts ought to just about be the exact thing they’re looking for. So, I spent more than ten hours today making one, just so I can get all the right photos and steps. Probably going to take me at least ten more hours, but its gonna be all worth it. First prize is an Apple MacBook Air and a Janome Serger Machine! That is sweet!

A couple of years ago, I wrote an ‘ible (shorthand for the instructables written on their site) that got me some recognition and featured on the front page for a bit. I was pretty happy with that, so I think I have a pretty good style for writing ‘ibles. I’ve got my eye on the prize!

Well, will say goodnight, so that I can enjoy this unexpected storm and all of its lightning and thunder and that wonderful sound of the heavy rain.

Thanks for stopping by,
