Introducing Ivy!

Okay, if you've read any comments, you've already met her. Ivy is my sister (one of my six sisters, that is), and she has agreed to post occasionally on this here blog, which makes me very happy. Like me, she likes to avoid housework by reading, so why shouldn't we benefit?

I'd like to clarify, though, that while Ivy does let things get messy around the house sometimes, she's way better than I am at getting things done. She makes beautiful, pieced quilts, paints walls and furniture and stairs, re-covers furniture (two of my couches, even!), and is otherwise more industrious than I am. Recently when she visited me, she scrubbed my stove, cleaned my washer and dryer (they're like new!), helped me fold laundry, cooked, and cleaned up the house several times. I love her! I'm glad she'll be writing here sometimes.


  1. Yes. I suppose I am quite wonderful. sigh...Ha Ha. Thank you, Erin, for such a nice introduction. And I do plan to post something soon, but I'm still a little intimidated and I also need to find all the instructions you gave me. I may be calling you for those again. Emily used the paper to draw on at church and I told her not to throw it away, but...shrug.

  2. I'll send them to you in email. Don't feel intimidated! One suggestion, though. You might want to write your post in a word processor and then cut and paste it into the browser when you're ready to post it. I wrote about half of a really long post last night and then leaned on my computer and accidentally closed the window, and just like that, it was gone. It was very tragic. I didn't rewrite it yet, because it was 12:30 am, and I was already on my way to Short-Fuse Mama from lack of sleep. And really, don't be intimidated. It will be great to have someone else posting on here sometimes!
