I’m a short, fat, quilter

Today's post is going to be a bit shall we say, vulnerable. I'm going to share two things that are near and dear to my heart. They are, without a doubt, quilt related. So hang with me friends. The psychiatrist is in Someday I will do it. I will get a booth at Quilt Market,… Continue reading I’m a short, fat, quilter

An Interview With: Linda Pearl of One Quilting Circle

Photo by Bonnie McCaffery I don't quite remember how I met Linda, it's one of those relationships where I'm not quite sure that matters. Linda and I talked on the phone a few times about quilterly business stuff and have simply connected. Linda is a key behind the scenes person and a fab quilter.

A Box, and a Dream

A while back the Sizzix Big Shot Pro arrived for use in my sewing room. I fell in love with this get-the-cutting-done-so-you-can-get-stitching-right-now machine. We were planning a project with the magazine and cutting a boatload of hexagons with a rotary cutter and ruler, while doable, wasn't really high on my list of things that get me… Continue reading A Box, and a Dream

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.
