The bumper music for this podcast is a 150-year old song from the American Civil War called "The Housewife's Lament."

Here's the cover from Teddy's concert -- he is in the center circled in yellow.
And here is Teddy after the concert.
THE FIBER ARTS SEGMENT [Podcast minute marker: 12:55]

Utility Apron

And here are a couple of closer views of the bib and the pocket placement on my apron. (Remember, you can make your pockets any size you want, and put them anywhere you want!)

Here are some photos of the pockets my sister Pat added to her apron. They are paper pieced following Carol Doak patterns.

3-D Butterfly Card

Here is a photo of the card that Margit made. She sent me the photo, which reminded me of all the cool templates I designed years ago. I'm going to start resurrecting them and offer them as projects now and then.

THE RECIPE SEGMENT [Podcast minute marker: 25:55]

Tea Sandwiches

I recommend using Pepperidge Farm White Sandwich Bread for this recipe -- it's the perfect consistency!

Here's a photo of my sandwich prep. Remember, you can use just about any herb mixed into your cream cheese -- and try other vegetables or fruit slices! Be creative!

And remember . . .
creativity isn’t a race
it’s an adventure!


  1. I enjoyed every minute of the podcast, especially the (very amusing) Housewife's Lament!

  2. Thanks! I'm glad you thought the song was amusing -- the only problem is, I can't get it out of my head this week! It's driving me crazy!

  3. Once again, you are amazing! Loved everything. You have a beautiful voice. Thank you for sharing it with us. Tami

  4. Enjoyed lstening to the latest podcast as usual.
    In Scotland our word for the grey days of winter is "dreich" and most Scottish people would agree with you rather than Teddy.
    I hope that you enjoy the Super Seminar. I saw Ricky Tims in concert at Paducah two years ago and he was fabulous.
    I'm sorry I can't help you out on Farmtown.I'm on Farmville and it's as addictive.
