one more time

Ok, giving blogger one more chance. I tried AOL journals (for past few days go to . It was ok but you can do more to your page with blogger. You have to get a typepad account to really play with your AOL blog. Was just listening to Rhett Miller on myspace. I have GOT to get his CD this weekend!! OK, I did something really stupid and I need help. Dh's clothes had oil on them(motor oil or something similar)- I washed them in the washer and thought it came out, put them in the dryer and now have oil stains all in my dryer, and am afraid if I put anything in there, the oil will heat up and get on my clothes and/or cause a fire. Any ideas how to get it out? Someone said coke cause it gets it out of clothes, I tried that but it only got the surface oil out, the stain is still there.. arggggggggh I wanted a new dryer but not this way... help!


tried to blog the other day and kept getting errors... let's see what happens today..

back again

arrgggggggh! I had this long post, then said publish and kept getting error messages. I hate that! Anyway, shortly after my last post, our water heater broke and flooded our downstairs. Our computer was fine, but our desk was ruined so we had nowhere to put the computer. Now everything's straight but I've been lazy about blogging.
My WIP "Fall Sampler" is no more.. it was on the floor in an open plastic bag when the downstairs flooded, and my overdyed threads ran all over each other and the fabric. It's ok in a way cause I really was getting tired of it anyway.
Believe it or not, I'm currently reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder series. I've had them all since I was little, but don't think I ever read them all, so I am now. They're actually quite interesting. I'm on the 3rd book right now.
Dh and I went to see "Failure To Launch" last weekend, it was really good and alot funnier than I thought it would be. But as a friend of mine said, you could watch Matthew McConaughey read a box of cereal and it would be interesting. lol
Not much else going on here.. still sick of the Brangelina hubbub, I really don't see what the big deal is. In fact I saw a funny article online showing how he always changes his look to match his girlfriend/fiancee, just confirms my thoughts that he's like a little puppy dog! And I used to like him so much. Oh well, enough of that.. maybe this one will publish...

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
