Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain

So here's a bit o'progress on one sample for the aforementioned class (title). Opening the drawers of the thread chest and grabbing as many different reds as I could find to begin stitching. The cool this is after collecting thread for a few years I have a multitude of reds to choose from. Then again… Continue reading Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain

Saturday turned out to be an amazing day. My sweetie and I took advantage of some time together at home to rearrange the furniture in the living room.

On Saturdays post I chatted about taking a detour while working on… Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month: Kaleidoscope whole cloth edition
