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

Connect: color

A while back Wednesday mornings meant heading to a local coffee shop for knitting and chatting. This hardcore machine quilter loved the company, and getting out of the house once a week was priceless. It was a way of connecting with friends, and with some handwork, knitting and crocheting. Attending guild meetings, sharing quilt stories,… Continue reading Connect: color

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
