Mountain Home Blue and White Quilt

If any of you are quilters out there, I admire you!  It’s a lot harder work than I thought.  I’ve now started over three times on our mountain home blue and white quilt because I couldn’t get the colors right.  I think I’ve finally gotten it, though.  My faithful Kenmore 12 Stitch sewing machine that I got for Christmas from my parents in 1990 started making a funny squeaky sound last week so I had to have it serviced.  I’m a bit embarrassed to say this, but in the 28…

My Dream Home

Image Via Society 6 My Dream Home When someone describes their dream home, usually it’s something grand, large, or at least high-end.  I should know, because I design those kinds of houses all the time for my clients.  They’re really beautiful and appealing on so many levels, and I can definitely see myself living in one of them.  But if I’m completely honest with myself, the image above represents my true dream home.  The older I get, the more simply I want to live away from the world out in…
