Thank you! to Cathy Anderson and Sarah Fabian owners of the Quilt Basket in Pawling NY for having me come teach for your shop.… Continue reading Brain Dump Follow Up
Over the last few days I've been working on the handout for Brain Dump: Stitch the Scary Stuff in Your Brain or The Impractical Color Wheel. One more review and I'm ready to go to print with it.

Happy Tuesday! Last spring I asked a trusted friend what her impressions were: confidence was the number one take away from that conversation. Honestly, I like that she picked up on that.
