Oh my goodness!  I have forgotten so much of what I had learned about WordPress, but I have confidence it will return bit by bit.  Just happy to upload a picture and a link today.   Looking back, I am amazed I figured out the whole blog thing to begin with.  Fortunately for me, WordPress makes it pretty easy to find my way around – and, of course, there’s always Google.

So, of course, the whole Etsy thing has gotten way out of hand, and I am quite addicted to uploading new products.  Bear with me, I’m stitching some pretty cool things these days.  Last week I added these Sherpa/Plush blankets to my line.   I love the whole “Reasons I Love Being a Grandma,” but feel free to create your own text!  You get the blanket plus 150 characters for $49.95.  Great for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, etc.

Thanks for humoring me:  http://www.21reasons.etsy.com is my store – mic drop.

(Just kidding about the mic drop.  Am I the only one who finds the whole mic drop thing completely annoying?)




A Southern Christmas

I love Southern cooking, even at Christmas.  I got my December copy of Every Day With Rachel Ray and fell in love with her Cherry and Chili-Glazed Ham (http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipe/cherry-and-chili-glazed-ham/).  With an ingredient list including cherry preserves, chili powder, coriander, ginger, grainy mustard and brown sugar, what’s not to like?

I’m brave, but not that brave, so I tried a dry run of the recipe to make sure it would be a suitable option for Christmas.




Just enough spice to make it exotic, just enough exotic to make it elegant, Southern elegant that is.

Now just to decide whether we want turkey or ham for Christmas.  Decisions, decisions.

I think I’ll vote for ham.
