Celebrating a Half-Century

Celebrating the big five-zero in ten short days. Some days I wonder where the time went, and some days I know exactly. I am grateful for the opportunity to be here, to become a quilter. I'm grateful for the struggles, and the joys. I'm grateful for those whose lives I've had the opportunity to spend… Continue reading Celebrating a Half-Century

Coming soon

Sometime after Quilt Market I'm going to start having Coffee Clatch live on either Wednesday or Thursday. I love drinking coffee, chatting with quilters. So it's a match made for social media. Let's see what fun we can get into. Quilt Market is coming very soon. I have a backpack and a purse to make,… Continue reading Coming soon

Quilting/Embroidery Problem Solving

I'd get started stitching and the stabilizer would tear, the thread was building up underneath in a most unbecoming way. Re-threaded, cleaned, oiled, changed the needle, checked the stitch plate.

A Most Memorable Date

Beauty Beyond Bones is one of my fave non-quilt related blogs. Caralyn speaks honestly about anorexia, recovery from anorexia, and more. In the linked blog post she's speaking of a trip to Spain to travel the Camino de Santiago. Her description of the whole-head, clear eyed fish served for lunch in their hotel. This reminded… Continue reading A Most Memorable Date

From a Retreat to You

I spent last weekend at a retreat, not quilt related, but one that seriously bolstered my commitment to building up the Quilting Community. In one of the talks we heard a saying from Trinidad that goes something like, "It is not my business what you think of me". Weirdly both my pens and phone were… Continue reading From a Retreat to You
