Yeah, I'm kind of annoyed with myself at the moment. I got so excited with the IDEA that reading the rules fell through the cracks. GAH! https://www.instagram.com/p/BXJLivEhySB/?taken-by=terilucas Let me back up a bit. When Karla announced the 2017 Cherrywood Challenge I sort of lost my mind. First of all Cherrywood. Cherrywood. Second, van Gogh *deep… Continue reading *facepalm*
Chocolate Cake and Quilting
When you're doing your work, when you're creating an offering, there's no more important question to answer than, "what sort of quality are we seeking here?" - Seth Godin Thinking clearly about quality. The sunset last night was something to behold, leaving me wishing for more photos or a video, the color changed so quickly.… Continue reading Chocolate Cake and Quilting
This words of this meme have been popping up all over the place the last few days. And I've seriously had to give these words consideration. Would I write a book? Well, uh. Ummm. Ehrm. Tried this.

Character – Lots and lots of Character
Today is a two quilt day, each has character. Dad Would be Honored is the first Feathered Star using Marsha McCloskey's directions I ever made. Most of the quilt is made with dad's ties. Dad himself was a bit of character writing rotten poetry, his preferred place behind the camera - always observing, listening. I brought… Continue reading Character – Lots and lots of Character

(I don't know the difference between the males and females.) Spring happens in just about fourteen days, to say… Continue reading if at first you don’t succeed

It’s all about the bass
Reading Jasper Fford lately has reminded me of this love of playing with words. I sometimes wear people out (yeah, sorry about that Melissa, you're so good at it though!) with this love, needing to be slightly more mindful of this...however it's so fun. This guy was a character.
