Thoughts: If I look at music, I can plunk out a few notes with my right hand. Those saturday morning piano lessons as a kid, did not pay off. Besides the fact that I did not practice during the week, I thought my mother was torturing me as she woke me up at the crack of dawn, (well it seemed like it) for our lessons.

I will never forget the humiliation as I began playing "Chestnuts roasting on the open fire" at our christmas recital and could not get past the first few lines. The teacher had to come sit by me and help me through it! My mother was the one that was most humiliated, I am sure. All the other students played their prepared pieces beautifully. Maybe because they PRACTICED! My piano lessons came quickly to an end.

Maybe I should take lessons again...they say though, that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, hummm, I think I will just continue sewing...

When talents were being passed out in heaven, I am sure I was in the wrong line because I was talking too much and not paying attention.

Things: I am just about finished on a sampler. I thought I would give you a peek of some of it.


  1. I think your pretty darn talented. Come visit, I'm having a big giveaway with some stuff I think you would like!

  2. I agree with the lines in heaven. I feel the same way about not getting in the right line for talents. I probably saw the length of the lines and was not PATIENT enough to wait for the good ones (musical, artistic, etc) I hate long lines! -Gina

  3. You have way too many talents! Maybe they're not musical, but still. If everyone was a musician there wouldn't be an audience! So being a great audience is my musical talent. Mimi
