A Nip o’this and that

Still waters run deep! Over the weekend someone shared that they'd been playing I Love Hue, and it's a great way to learn to understand color. I agree, very much. Each level has a group of tiles, several fixed, most movable to sort according to shade/tone. You get to see the proper sorting first, then… Continue reading A Nip o’this and that

Quilted Block of the Month

So remember the reset I need to do on the January Block? Check out Can You Believe this Nonsense for the original post. Being a fan of the seam ripper is great. Not being able to find my favorite seam ripper isn't so great. Eh, whatever, there's at least one handy and I'll get back… Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month
