Now here’s a good question for you

"What do you do with the stitching? Are they in quilts?" Good questions both, and answering them seems a good idea. Some stitching is practice. Practice? Yes, I still practice. While I have a good handle on thread, batting, needles, stitching motifs, there is still more to know, more to improve. So sometimes the quilting… Continue reading Now here’s a good question for you

A blog of blogs

I am a blog reader. When I open WordPress in the morning the Reader is there showing me who's recently posted, allowing me to comment, like, or move on. It is mostly quilt related, though I have a travel blog I read because she's a good writer and she commented on my blog a long… Continue reading A blog of blogs

The sky at dusk

The photo below is a morning sky. The sky at dusk lately, oh that indigo/blue ombre sky, with deep gray stone of the buildings. As I stand at the bus stop on Madison these tall buildings and that sky...I keep thinking of quilts to make. It's making me wish for longer days. Or differently… Continue reading The sky at dusk

The best hot chocolate I ever made! or Did I ever tell you about my chocolate hangover?

Last winter was cold, and as such hot chocolate an occasional necessity. One particularly chilly evening I pulled out all of the chocolate stops. Demerara sugar, cocoa powder, left over dark chocolate (yes, I know, what the heck!), vanilla, milk, and some cream leftover from making some holiday dessert. Into the sauce pan goes the… Continue reading The best hot chocolate I ever made! or Did I ever tell you about my chocolate hangover?


A squirrel in the house

Originally posted in 2009 Yesterday my brother sent email to all of us about a bird that got into his house.  With his previously known creative writing abilities I'm not quite sure if there really is a bird in his house, or if he's going through some elaborate ruse leading up to April Fools Day.… Continue reading A squirrel in the house

Doing the (prep) Work, the next part

At some point in my quilting journey I knew that teaching was a next step. How did I know? Well, another quilter asked me one day, "Teri, when are you going to start teaching?" Well, I guess . .  soon. It took me a bit, but I figured out that I wanted to teach machine… Continue reading Doing the (prep) Work, the next part

Monday Morning Quickie

Wednesday through Friday last week I attended the annual BERNINA Ambassador Reunion at the BERNINA Creative Center in IL. Melody Crust wrote a bit about it here. Attending the reunion/retreat is always a great joy meeting other ambassadors, learning what they do and the wide variety of work they're involved in. We're not all quilters!… Continue reading Monday Morning Quickie

Village Fabric Shoppe

On a chilly Saturday morning I packed quilts, Jeannie (B 790) and myself into the car and headed off to the Village Fabric Shop in Red Hook, NY. The Hudson Valley, rich in history and beauty, feels so much like home, it's always a pleasure to have an excuse to go there. Really I don't… Continue reading Village Fabric Shoppe
