Spark Joy

My friend, Marilyn, told me about the book, Spark Joy; An illustrated master class on the art of organizing and tidying up. I've download the book on to my Kindle and my goal is to have it read before the turn of the new year. Marilyn explained that the premise of the book is that if something doesn't give you joy then to give it away, let it go!

Today I got home from work a little earlier then usual so started the "big dig" in my sewing room and decided that I was going to thin out my fabric stash and give away fabric that no longer brings me joy.

This first bit of Spark Joy is going to Brittany because she's a new quilter and I know some of this fabric will bring her great joy in sewing up some fun things.

I will continue to thin out my stash and hopefully be able to bring joy to another quilters life.

So what do you think...can you thin out your stash and bring joy to a new quilter?

Until Next Time

  1. I read Marie Kondos first book back in 2014 just before I sold my house and moved to Woodstock, VA. I found it ever so helpful. It made my move ever so much easier and I am still using her great info in how to organize drawers and closets.

    1. I will be getting her first book...I fell asleep reading Spark Joy last night and had dreams of throwing out dumpster loads of stuff..don't think I'm that

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
