A Nip o’this and that

Still waters run deep! Over the weekend someone shared that they'd been playing I Love Hue, and it's a great way to learn to understand color. I agree, very much.

Cotton Cuts Charity Mystery Hop

There is nothing like multiple deadlines all rolling into one really busy six weeks that says let's get everything done all on the same day.

Kaleidoscope – Dreams do come true

this looks like a hot mess, and in a way it is. what you can't see is the ever growing pile o'holyscraps over there ----------> I've wanted to make a kaleidoscope quilt for a long time.
