 utilizing some “dead space”

because, the neighbor lady redid her floors

and she knew i would want all the old floor planks

and i used a few of them

to make a shelf.

it’s full of books now.

because i not only quilt (thanks mom)

and knit (thanks agnes)

    Knowing how to do wood work is always useful, I wish that I knew how.
    Your cardamom bread looks mouth watering, cardamom is the spice I like best.

    Hey, it’s only natural! You come from a long line of ‘do what it takes’ as well as creative women. I hope your Dad takes a look at your project.

    all I can say to your reply about a long line of ancestors is that it takes a very smart WOMAN to say things like that and I guess that I do fit that bill.
    Love to all, grandmother

    Yes, Jan’s mother ( y la senora mia) has come up with some really corney
    cracks and statements over the 54 years I have known her.Most all of them are worth repeating now and then for a good laugh.

    About your skills with wood, fabric, cooking, well , the apples and nuts
    don’t fall far from the tree. Good job, Maggee. Your space saving
    shelving unit would (almost) put me to shame.
    Love from your Dad
