Tonight The Bear and I went out to do some last minute shopping for some friends. MISTAKE! Big mistake. It was raining and crowded and absolutely ridiculous. Baby Bear was awful, which is pretty typical this
month. Probably because her nap schedule, that I worked so hard to
enforce the first 15 months of her life, has been totally up in the air
while we run errands and I give into her fits of clingy not wanting to
nap-ness. So, let me say, I cannot wait for Christmas to…

Christmas is absolutely the most magical time of year, however in Australia, rather than sitting by a warm fire as the snow falls outside, waiting for Santa and his reindeer to arrive, we Aussies are at the beach, in our togs, eating pineapple and throwing another shrimp on the BBQ.

The weather’s heating up here in Southern California. We’re fortunate to live just a mere 20-minute drive above the valley below because temperatures easily pass 100 degrees daily in the summer. As you climb the mountain, you literally watch the temperature gauge in the car drop degree by degree, till you arrive at home. A decent 15-20 degrees cooler simply because we’re at 5,000 feet.

I’ve made a few quilts now, and each one’s always a long endeavor. Much longer than I originally plan. I’m kind of a get-working-get-it-done mind, so quilts are a true test of my patience. You just can’t rush a quilt. And, to make a good one, you can’t just take a few pieces of material. It has to be made of many pieces, lots of stitches, and lots of love.
So, when the house was quiet this weekend, I laid out my Suriname quilt…a work in progress for this past year or so.…Continue

I’ve been thinking about making soap for most of my life. It’s such a wholesome, enriching and fulfilling thing to do. Homemade soap is as appealing as fresh baked bread in my book.
Making your own soap…
