I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

Lookie what 13 things the Red Queen Can Do

I am off to help my daughter celebrate graduating from college- what a Mother's Day gift that is. Oh and also we are hoping to remedy the sadness of last Thursday and the demise of my beloved car. Only this is not a car, it is a monster and will lay smack on any deer even looking my way, but it is red and face it I look good driving anything!

Thirteen things the Red Queen can do:

1. I can disassemble and reassemble a vacuum cleaner so that it is clean inside and works better.

2. I can change a flat tire. I actually had 2 PA State Police watch me change one in the rain.

3. I can repair my washing machine.

4. I bait the hooks when we go deep-sea fishing- can you say raw slimy squid.

5. I can help splice conveyor belts here at the coal wash plant when they need to be fixed.

6. I can find something good in almost any situation- even the dreaded "the cupboard is bare and we are starved" scenario.

7. I can tie a cherry stem into a knot using only my mouth..

8. I can fix my daughters jeans so that they can live at least 3 years beyond the rag bag.

9. I can make anyone feel better about themselves and do it sincerely.

10. I skin and butcher all the deer and elk we harvest, and then I can a lot of it in quart jars for later- yummy!

11. I can drive a stick-shift! Yeah, Datsun 280 ZX!!!!

12. I can and will yawn at any suggestion of it, it can be the written word and*yawn* it triggers me to*yawn*.

13. I can act my age but only do this if I absolutely have too.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
