Simply Something to Do


My name is Mary and I am a blogaholic.

And a magazineaholic.

And a quiltaholic.

You get the picture . . . and it's not pretty.

Because I apparently don't have enough to do with my time, I have decided to add something new. Everything I know, I learned from my children. Having been dragged kicking and screaming into the digital age, I am now at their mercy to teach me how to live there . . . simply & happily.

So this daughter and I designed my blog and she holds lengthy phone conversations with me to guide me through the baby steps. It's kind of like she is the mom now and I am the kid. Come to think of it, that is increasingly becoming my relationship with all 4 of my children. Thank goodness they are patient, brilliant and hilarious.

Don't even get me started on the grandchildren.

The purpose of my blog (aside from the obvious need to blatantly and unashamedly brag about my offspring) is to share my experience with my hobbies . . . and my home . . . and to hear the same from you.

I like to design and sew quilts. (And teach others how to do it.)

I like to decorate, and I get a bigger thrill out of it if I can do it, shall we say -- "frugally".

I am simply, happy at home.

And you??

stop, stop, you're embarassing me.

and no worries, while we may have you beat on the tech front, you are soooo much more experienced on the home design front. can't wait for you to share your insights.

First off, I adore that quilt. I don't think that I have seen it yet.

Secondly, I am so excited that you have your own lovely blog. I don't think that I am quite ready to have my own blog (as I am still in the midst of having my own BABY!), but maybe one day...if I can learn to write as brilliantly as you and Miss Ess and Mrs. Dub!
