Learn to Stitch with Reckless Abandon

One evening the local television station aired a documentary on Terry Fox who attempted to run across Canada in an… Continue reading Learn to Stitch with Reckless Abandon

Let’s Get Funky

Gratuitous Image to evoke HOT HOT HOT A number of friends local to Central Texas have mentioned that this is unusual weather. First the rain complete with lightning and thunder. Boom! Clap! Queue dripping sinuses from the mold. I did feel like I had moss growing around my feet. Right on the heels of the… Continue reading Let’s Get Funky

Cascade

That crack at the back of the drawer, splitting the back brace piece explained part of why opening/closing it is difficult. That and the bowing drawer bottoms. Sigh. When I bought this drawer unit it seemed perfect. The drawers are wide, and deep able to accommodate a lot of thread. I did not, however, give… Continue reading Cascade

When I was growing up

We all have troubles in life some that we speak of, some that we don't. Our life experiences help form and shape us unto the people we are today. Some memories are wildly hard, some are delightful, some are neutral, some stay with us, some don't. At some point in my growing up I took… Continue reading When I was growing up

Okay, so here’s what Happened and Then

It's been a week and it's Wednesday, and had to check that by hovering the cursor over the time on the laptop. Last week I dropped something off with a friend here locally as I left her house on my next errand a small rock kicked up and hit the windshield causing a star right… Continue reading Okay, so here’s what Happened and Then

Bacon grease splattered a good three feet away from the pan, bacon, in that delightfully crisp state, crumbled. Bacon.… Continue reading Wherein the Bacon Falls on the Floor

Holding Space

As a general rule I don't cover hot topics in this part of my quilting world. Hot topics were reserved for the magazine blog & social media spaces. Then someone of note in the industry said/did something that not only did I disagree with it was in fact demeaning and demoralizing. I wrote this Op… Continue reading Holding Space
