beaglelady, that is a great idea. I have a few light summer scarves that I mostly only use then. I have pashminas in practically every color that I use year round. I use them in winter as scarves and the rest of the year they are used as shawls becau

Kittiemom, the dehumidifier has been a life saver! She runs it for several hours a day and it has helped. She seems to have got it under control. Thank you for asking.

Purdy, prayers coming your way. Bubblegum, my mom's illness did the same thing to me. I didn't know if I was coming or going after she passed away. When I look back now, I wonder how I did all I did during that time, especially the last year or so.

Something that is back in fashion again are scarves. Think about how a great scarf around the neck can add oomph to a simple tee. I have a friend who does accessorizing better than most and she wants me to get a few. Went to JoAnn fabrics(I am cheap!

Bushlady, the good part is that you can visualize what you want to do and that we are all making progress. Diana, I think you will agree with me on this. The stuff has to be done so you figure out a way. If it means 10 minutes here and then rest for

Good decision, Diana. If it is going to be too much, it won't be fun. Maybe another time. Cyd, you are really organized with your phone. We are dinosaurs, land-line only, no fancy apps! However, we realize that there are some younger than us who

That sounds like a fun and useful project, Cyd. I have only bought one gift so far and an "extra" for DDIL. Have to get my GON Holiday Organizer out soon and start planning. I think I have been dragging my feet because I am focussed on

BBG, I understand perfectly how the situation with your mom's illness overwhelmed everything else in your life. I spent 10 years making 2 trips a year to the UK to visit parents while mom had dementia, also visiting DMIL at the other end of the coun

Happened on a cute idea for gift tags for 'stashers' like me. [wish links were allowed] I've a box of plain-jane, kraft paper 'tags' from past projects and lots of left-over fabric so will marry the two using pinking sheers or scrapbook scissors to
