Bookkeeper, tax preparer, cat lady, blogger, organizer, mystery writer.

Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Progress...

Just finished cutting the fabric for my bedroom window valance.  Finally!  And do you know why I was procrastinating?  It's such a stupid reason - I was afraid that this was the sort of fabric that it's hard to tell the right side from the wrong side.  Duh - look at it!  I finally unfolded it this morning (why didn't I just have a look at the bedskirt is beyond me) and it's printed checks rather than woven.  See, it's all just another symptom of my fear of success - but that's another story.  I bought two yards of sixty-inch fabric, so I cut it in half the long way and I'm going to stitch the ends together to make a 120-inch self-lined valance.  I'm using a wide pocket rod, so I'm leaving a couple of inches at the top for a ruffled effect.  I have a client coming by at one or I'd be in the bedroom stitching this fabulous window treatment up!  I am going to get it done tonight and hopefully get both the bedroom and office valances and rods hung next week - film at eleven.  One of these days.  Soon.

  1. It should be an easy project; you'll be able to use one of the checks as a sewing line!
