Weekend Miscellany

Last night for a period of time our internet service was out. Our service provider was not the only one effected by whatever happened.

Quilting This Week

A Name and a Purpose¬†is taking shape and form.¬† Meet "Lenny" in process. The overall look will change over time as the overall idea takes shape. Thread spools sit next to the machine excitedly waving for attention at each thread change. Sometimes they get picked, sometimes I head to the drawer for another color. They'll… Continue reading Quilting This Week
