tying a knot and hanging on


I refuse to be down in the dumps Caf.

I don’t care if my face is falling apart.

I don’t care if my legs don’t work.

I don’t care if my course will have to wait till next year.

I don’t care if I am cursed.

I don’t care if everything hurts.

(well, obviously I care but I’m overcoming here)

I decided to indulge in some lazy art. Well, not that lazy, cause it took me a while to draw little Kymmy here… Continue

this vampiric world, steals sanity

I never really thought

That I’d be quoting me

But I’ve said it before

The way things have come to be

So it’s not an exercise in vanity


This vampiric world, steals sanity

How do you defend

Against the universe itself?

How do you comprehend

Its unbridled, endless realm?

I’m not giving up

But that doesn’t mean

I’m any less confused

By how things seem

I miss the inspiration and faith that were… Continue

Both grandbabies are here and doing fine

Kayla finally arrived on Aug. 11. She was all tangled up in the cord so they had to go in and get her out. She is a beautiful little girl (of course, I'm not the least bit prejudiced!)

Isaac is doing great -- he's off the ventilator and growing every day.

His Dad had never held a baby before, but it looks like it comes naturally to… Continue

Infants Clothing

Hello everyone, I just joined sew-whats-new and hope to meet new people who loves to sew as I do. I am looking for some patterns for infants, age 6-9 months. Anyone have any suggestion. I would really appreciate it. I have my first new grandchild, a girl, and would love to be able to make her some clothes. Thank You.

and i'm back in the game!

Firing up
And burning strong
Forcing my way
Getting along
Despite the trauma
Despite the wrong
My brain awakened
A clear new song
Little pieces
Of a different future
Find each other
And bond together
Motivated more
Than the past 2 years saw
And getting excited
By the life I’m creating
For myself

Details of my inspiration

Things change in a hurry

Well, our lives have been turned upside down this past week. Instead of Kayla (due on July 28th) we got Isaac (due Oct 17). When we got the call at 1:30 am on the 29th, it was son #3 instead of son #2. Isaac arrived a couple of hours later at a whopping 2 pounds, 14+ounces -- 13 inches long. He was whisked off by the NICU transfer team soon after birth. He is now about 1 1/2 hours away but is doing great -- getting stronger hourly. They are still saying it will be a couple of months before we… Continue
