You know I think a lot, you've seen that in my quilts. I submitted a Sample Chapter and am still thinking about things that need to be in that chapter. I keep reminding myself that it doesn't have to be perfect. It just doesn't. That thinking though, sometimes just keeps going. I'm sharing a couple… Continue reading Tuesday Afternoon Ponderings
I sat down with Giuseppe Ribaudo at Quilt Market for all of five minutes. While I wanted more time to look at other lines, the five minutes was all I needed.

We did, however, cut her off from any further… Continue reading Then there was that time
