Flowers

A large part of the last two weeks has been spent on filing. Oh so FUN! Actually, I don’t mind and I think I’m finally getting the machine embroidery files organized. Although I keep finding unzipped files and duplicate–lately in folders I thought I’d completed. Being a free design junkie and having gone crazy when I first got my embroidery machine, I have way more designs than I’ll ever get to. It’s taking forever and while I don’t mind, it…

Lost Again

Lost Again

If I don’t fall into the Black Hole of Facebook, something else manages to distract me. Today it was making the new header to match the new background. Last night (and a bit this morning) it was playing on GIMP. I guess that’s me. However, it was fun to make. The sea is many layers of a background that started as a geometric flower or star. I used a bunch of G’Mic filters to get the waves. Used another one…

Hot! Hot! Hot!

Hot! Hot! Hot!

I know it’s hotter in other parts of the country, but it’s more like when we lived in Virginia than ever. Part of the reason we moved here was to get away from the heat and humidity. At least the humidity isn’t bad here. Why am I cooking on the hottest day so far this month? I was going to make three dishes for the freezer, but I may not. Our a/c is temperamental. I don’t want to stress it….

Rainy Sunday

Rainy Sunday

It’s been raining fairy steadily for two days now, and off and on for at least two days before that. It’s good. We need it. I did this page a while ago. It was just colors on the page and then I sketched in what I saw in those colors. I wrote the poem, but haven’t actually pasted it down, yet, so that’s a bit of digital magic. That’s more or less how it’ll look when I’m done, though. (The…

Not a “Daily [Anything]” Kind of Gal

Not a “Daily [Anything]” Kind of Gal

I tried to be. I’d like to be. But I’m just not. (5-21-21) It’s been over a week since I typed that. Apparently I’m not a “Weekly [Anything]” kind of gal either. What I’m really not, is an “Organized [Anything]” kind of gal. And I’m not sure why I opened this blog. My lack of organization means I have nothing prepared. Since I wrote here last: I worked in the backyard–cut the branches of the weed trees hanging over the…

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

Just because. There is something soothing about looking at a I had a devil of a time getting this image to post. My website is unlimited, but the blog thinks I have an upload limit. Finally, I figured out if I upload directly to the blog uploads folder (not via the blog) and then link the image, it’ll stop telling me my upload is too large.

Kiwi Chicken

Kiwi Chicken

Was going to finish the den today. It’s after 3 and I haven’t been in there yet. I may get in there, but it’s not likely I’ll get finished today. Oh, well. This is my normal. Three hours later . . . I got distracted. Again, my normal. I was going to write about my stitching last night, but I saw another picture and wanted to play with it. So this (kiwi skin with one last scoop of fruit) ….
