Well another span of time has gone by and life is chilly here in Upstate NY. The leaves here have colored and dropped quickly. I am feeling the need to go get apples and (surprisingly) missing the garden and Ted's big harvest push. I always grumbled about being the one stuck in the kitchen cleaning and freezing and canning - but now that I don't have that - I miss it - kind of. Life is funny and we as people are funnier. I'm working on a blue teddy bear for my church raffle and will hopefully post pictures soon. I'm also feeling the urge to make a witch and all number of other things - so who knows - maybe new stuff will be coming soon. I can only hope. My little cat, Magic, loves me to sit in my craft room and sew at my machine. She is reclusive and is rarely seen, but as soon as I sit to sew, she is in my chair with me and will stay for hours. Some things remain as constants which I am truly thankful for now. Peace and more soon.

Hi - I wanted to post my new teddy bear, named Theodore R Bear. I made him for the auction to benefit the Albany Ronald McDonald House. He is 5.5 inches tall seated and 6 inches toe to toe. I dressed him festively so people will smile looking at him.
- I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years. I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories. I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent. I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish. Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years. There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now. My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls. Who could ask for more than that?
