I’m a terrible picture taker

Let me rephrase a bit. I'm terrible at taking pictures when I'm teaching. It's really annoying in some regard because I'd love to show you what's going on with the quilters in my class.

Eclipse

Sunday evening around 9:30 I had a date with my front porch to watch the lunar eclipse. I do love the moon, how the moon orbits the earth reflecting the light of the sun, waxing and waning, sometimes nearer the earth, sometimes seemingly far awaymoving to and fro in sync with the tidal movement The… Continue reading Eclipse

This is a bit surreal

Friends. It is a bit surreal this moment. Seeing these quilts hanging at Road to California as a display, with the descriptions and poster is simply surreal. And so I share some of the images from the exhibit (I'm not sure I got all of the quilts) without further comment, other than to say I'm… Continue reading This is a bit surreal

Goals, Video & Moving Forward

Friends, please join me in sharing some of the beauty of this week. While I know I still need some time to reflect and think things through there are some good highlights.
