Live From Houston!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CVdT-fLr4kR/ Life is good. I am short. This is awesome sauce. Right before this moment I was kind of goofy dancing in that middle aisle between my students.

Jen Fulwiler Made me Cry and Why I’m a Better Quilter for it

I'm reading her book Your Blue Flame Drop the Guild and do What Makes you Come Alive. The kindle version of the book opened up to chapter 8: You can… Continue reading Jen Fulwiler Made me Cry and Why I’m a Better Quilter for it
