Updated: Free Tutorial and Pattern Lists 2018

Snippets and Threadtales

Making my lists and checking them twice,
Always sewing but still trying to be nice.
Chickens, cats, family and friends...
When oh when will the busy end?

Blog photos and fillers holding my space,
Trying so hard to not lose my place!
The router keeps breaking, the computer is old.
Planning a getaway puts blogging on hold.

Forgive my repetitions, old projects and such,
I'm ironing and mending and packing too much.
It's all in the future but without any sleep,
Technological updates are on hold and repeat.

My children and grandkids, grandcats and grandpup,
Dishwasher is broken, weeds coming up,
Things are collecting in piles everywhere,
Can't find my coffee cup, car keys or my chair!

Some days are lovely and filled with great fun,
Others are grab and go on the run.
My brain is bedraggled, my list never bare...
Thank goodness for all of these favorites to share!
