Weekend Project

It's Friday and I am thinking of projects for the weekend. I must finish this hanging garden for our gate. I am making it in Sunbrella fabric (Essex Ivy) to match our awning as well as making it weather proof.  Hastily getting it before the summer is over!

Sewing projects completed

Some projects that I have completed this summer for Baby Gifts. The Block are 5" squares that I made in some fun fabric from a great web site ( Found the free pattern online and once you get going, you will not be able to stop. I made 18! Bears are for twin boys that are soon to arrive and where made from a photo I saw online. I think they came out pretty close to the photo. (mine are the bottom photo). Made from blue,white and brown felt. I added the brown and blue ribbon since their neck looked bare.

Dreaming of the Weekend

Today I dream about the weekend and think about all the things I want to do and create. I have a huge list that rolls thru my mind like the ticker on the stock market..painting,gardening,sewing or possible creating a piece of jewelry. I can't stop the scrolling of ideas and it clouds my mind during the mid week.  Possible inspiration for my paintings...

Garden 2009

It has been a very raining and cold summer here in the northeast. Today we actually may see 85. Here are some photos of my garden and some lovely visitors.

Welcome to My Blog

What do I blog about, well just about anything. Title is a take on the old saying Jack of all trades,master of nothing.. So..

It's Monday and after having the typical Sunday night "I dread to go to work on Monday"episode, I am now at work and 1/2 the day is over. It's not that I don't like my work, I do but it is becoming increasingly boring since the down turn in the Economy.. I tend to sit and day dream about what I could or should be doing. So I have started this blog to figure it all out. I am sure there are others out there with the same feelings and ideas, so I will just be posting whatever I feel like posting. Check back as I am sure there will photo of what I will be doing..
