I’ve gone and done it now

I've added a Retreat to the list of classes. I've wanted to add a retreat for a very long time, now seemed as good a time as any. A three or five day retreat to explore the world of thread, batting, design, and color. Find the eclecticness of you, the freedom to explore and push… Continue reading I’ve gone and done it now

Whole Cloth Update

There is nothing quite so comforting as listening to the sewing machine as I quilt. It's a beautiful sound.

This still makes me giggle. What makes me giggle a wee bit louder: I submitted this to Quilt National. I know that my very dear… Continue reading Choosing Quilt Motifs – Part 4.21

Color Me

Beautiful.  I don't often share stories from "the office" whether that be the quilt shop/BERNINA dealer or stories from the road teaching. Yesterday 18 students gathered to have their "colors" done.  I covered the shop floor while my coworkers attended the workshop.  However I asked my boss last week, knowing I couldn't attend the class. … Continue reading Color Me

Thinking, thinking and I would like your input, please

Whenever I hear, "thinking, thinking" the voice in my head sounds like Elfred in my GPS.  Elfred is from the north pole and sometimes asks if anyone wants hot chocolate or fruitcake.  My answer to both is, "yes!"
