Grow Your Blog ~ 2014

I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit! A cold winter weekend visiting with friends near and far is the Best 'cure' for the winter blues!The kettle is on and fresh from the oven are these yummy homemade gluten free cranberry cinnamon rolls.

Gluten Free
You guessed it...I'm having to learn "how to cook" all over again! I've not had gluten [except for accidental contamination] since July 2013. Oh what a difference, and all for the better, minus having to relearn cooking skills. If you have questions about a Gluten~Free lifestyle and the need to eliminate gluten just ask...

I'm Carol a.k.a. Beulah an artist working with thread and fabric, ink, paint and whatever else catches my eye. An organic gardener, Gluten-Free, dreamer and does, consumer of tea and chocolate along with lots and lots of salads! My family calls me the 'leaf eater'. I try to sew or create several hours each day and especially love the days when creating begins at sunrise and ends well into the night. What you will find here on the blog...a bit of everything...I don't have set days for posting, and write often about what is consuming my time at the moment.
 

2014 began like every year, a blank canvas but is rapidly filling with an ever expanding creative list of projects and new adventures!
Blog Tours, Online Quilting Bees, Publications, Wedding Quilts,Writing,Gluten-Free Cooking, Charity Quilts,Gardening, a New Business...more on each of these in the coming weeks.

I won't 'keep you' as I know you, like myself are just 'itching' to pop in and visit with everyone! Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to our visits in 2014! But before you go I have something to share...my first giveaway of 2014!
