2017 Word of the Year

well I guess I never decided on a 2016 word, or just kept the one from 2015: Journey. Something about keeping the same word seems full of continuity however, I've been looking for my word all year, not really finding it. In a sense I've felt a little lost somewhat like Sam and Frodo trying to… Continue reading 2017 Word of the Year

HMQS a brief

https://www.instagram.com/p/BFIIGs6Nvpv/?taken-by=terilucas It's hard to believe I've been home for 24 hours already arriving home late yesterday afternoon.

I've… Continue reading HMQS a brief

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

Someone asked and I finally figured it out

I shared this photo on fb, the inevitable question, "what are you going to do with the fabric?" cropped up.  I ask that question myself of quilters and of myself. "I don't know" is a perfectly acceptable answer. As is, "I'm adding to my fabric stash" and "Who the heck knows, I just need it… Continue reading Someone asked and I finally figured it out
