During weeks of summer heat I measured and cut red and green Christmas fabrics while everybody in town with a sewing machine stacked up supplies to keep them going till December.

Two months! I just realized how much time has passed since I last posted. Actually, I think of the month of August as “The Month That Was Not,” because I was under the weather for a few weeks. But also since the last time I posted, I’ve had an exciting release. Back in 2014, Hidden […]

Growing up and living during my younger adult years in Illinois, I suppose I knew about as much about the Great Depression as anyone in my circles. Stock market crash. High unemployment.
