We inherit many things from our families – hair color, eye color, height, etc. We also inherit creativity – some people it is a natural thing and for others, it needs to be developed.

Moms press release

This is a press release for my mother’s next book. Gloria Stiger Linkey has already published a book “Native American Women – Three who changed history”. Her next book will be a children’s book “Abbey’s Rescued Animals”. The picture used, Mom thinks she is about 7 or 8 and she is posing with their dog, Honey Bunny Boo.

So here is the line of creativity – Mom writes, Darci blogs. Mom’s Aunt sewed a lot of our clothes, I quilt. Mom also sewed a lot of our clothes and costumes for school stuff.

Don’t be afraid to try a new craft or hobby. Somebody in your family lineage gave you something for your to take and make your own.

Almost time for time change

We all have smoke alarms in our homes – at least I hope so. Now this is not quilt related but imagine losing your house to a fire.

Just do these simple things:
Check monthly – press the “Test” button
Vacuum monthly – dust, lint, pet dander can clog up the filter.
Change the battery – Every year or buy a 10 year battery.
Change the device every 10 years – when checking the battery, look to see if there is a date. If the date is 2003 or prior, go buy a new device.

You may still hear the noise if you hit the test button, but the sensor is probably bad.

Smoke alarms are not expensive and they do alert you if there is smoke in the house. Put one inside each sleeping room and one on each level. Don’t put it near the kitchen.

Stay safe – check your smoke alarms often. Not only is October Breast Cancer Awareness month, it is also Fire Prevention month.

Thank you for your time.
