If only......

If only there were more hours in the day I could write on my blog again.  I could take pretty pictures with my new camera and share recipes and show works in progress.  Only problem is that by the time I sit down to work on those "works in progress" it's too late to write about them on my blog.  Be patient with me.  I am going to try to be better about writing, but I know that I need to change the way I write.  Perhaps it doesn't have to be showing 10+ pictures.  Maybe just one picture summing up the day will do.  I do promise.....I am going to try to be better.  

The picture below is showing a stack of orders we have had in the last few months.  The stack is ridiculous......first because, WOW, we've been busy but then WOW, so busy you haven't even had time to clean out your order box!!  Oh well, such is life!

Just know that I am still here, and have been yearning to write, just need to re-vamp my blog entries.  Like I said before, be patient with me!

Until next time.....


  1. We aren't going anywhere. You keep creating.

  2. The piece you did for Punchneedle Magazine is gorgeous! Just got mine yesterday. Hang in there. Short entires will keep us all hanging on!!!

  3. You want to be a huge success and then again, maybe not quite so successful. You girls are too good for your own good.

    1. Exactly....we are prisoners of our own ambition!

  4. Success comes with paperwork! Your work deserves the recognition.

  5. Sometimes just scheduling in a half hour to do something is all that's needed. I know I always wait too long to blog....then I have too many pics and write too long of a post (which takes too long to write)... so, it may be best to try to blog more frequent and the posts will be shorter and therefore much quicker to write... very happy to see all of those orders piled up! A beautiful success! :-)

  6. Looks like business is good and that is fantastic!

  7. thanks for sharing the nice information about the=is post!



About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
