Color, Thread & Free-Motion Quilting

Color So y'all know life is weird, and when it's really weird I get quiet. Welcome to 2020. In many ways this is a great year. My Sweetie and I are in TX, we're together, our original house sale fell through about a month ago, Quilt Market went virtual, and Threads of Success is moved… Continue reading Color, Thread & Free-Motion Quilting

Connecting & Freeing Up

Connecting While perusing social media Debby Brown posted this link for ways to connect with one another while we are refraining from in-person contact. I knew about one of the ways for personal contact, the other two were new to me. The Quilt Show is having a membership sale right now. I rejoined last night… Continue reading Connecting & Freeing Up

Weekend Miscellany

Last night for a period of time our internet service was out. Our service provider was not the only one effected by whatever happened. Oddly enough my mobile carrier was effected however I had service, which allowed me to get online and do some checking around. We do have the digital antenna so watching the… Continue reading Weekend Miscellany

Then there was that time

This text arrived: I fainted at the HQ Booth (They caught me before I hit) How's your day? Lisa and I ditched Ken in the Pickle Pie booth and walked very, very quickly to the HandiQuilter booth to find Debby well taken care of and fine. We did, however, cut her off from any further… Continue reading Then there was that time

Color Wheel

I like color. A lot. I like how color plays. I like how color sings. I like how color behaves, misbehaves, swirls, whirls, blends, hides, shows off and generally is itself. Joen Wolfrom appeared on Simply Quilts some long time ago, talking about color. She talked about the 3-in-1 color tool, how it's used in… Continue reading Color Wheel

Years ago I spent an afternoon stitching with Elizabeth Rosenberg in her quilt studio. She sorted her thread by color rather than fiber, it befuddled me a bit, because isn't fiber… Continue reading Sorting
