Something shifted

In such an amazing way: https://www.instagram.com/p/BhcSii2DaPO/?taken-by=terilucas It all started with getting a Herculean task done. And then: https://www.instagram.com/p/BhcZRiCjbIN/?taken-by=terilucas A New Moon Rises https://www.instagram.com/p/BhccwjOjuxr/?taken-by=terilucas It's really difficult when Creativity ebbs, especially when it ebbs because of every day life.

August Block of the Month An Original

Technical difficulties sometimes present big problems. Other times they are opportunities for learning. Something went screwy a while back, causing something to happen to the version of Microsoft Office installed on my computer. I have an open source that I can use for documents, power point presentations, and graphics, it's simply not as intuitive as… Continue reading August Block of the Month An Original

I haven't had much time to quilt lately. I will admit to being a wee bit cranky as a direct result. I wanted to finish this piece a while ago however, time just is taken up with the "must do this" list that quilting is set aside. The studio whispers my name as I walk… Continue reading Restorative Quilting

finding a happy place

Sometimes the happiest moments happen when you're least expecting it. I know something about myself that is lovely to admit, I love to quilt and I love to teach quilting. These are the things in my quilterly life that I've come to know. I love the challenge of learning how to do something and the… Continue reading finding a happy place
