Pardon me While I get a bit Sentimental

Cascade

That crack at the back of the drawer, splitting the back brace piece explained part of why opening/closing it is difficult. That and the bowing drawer bottoms. Sigh. When I bought this drawer unit it seemed perfect. The drawers are wide, and deep able to accommodate a lot of thread. I did not, however, give… Continue reading Cascade

A Most Memorable Date

Beauty Beyond Bones is one of my fave non-quilt related blogs. Caralyn speaks honestly about anorexia, recovery from anorexia, and more. In the linked blog post she's speaking of a trip to Spain to travel the Camino de Santiago. Her description of the whole-head, clear eyed fish served for lunch in their hotel. This reminded… Continue reading A Most Memorable Date

A Name and a Purpose¬†is taking shape and form.¬† Meet "Lenny" in process. The overall look will change over time as the overall idea takes shape.

They'll… Continue reading Quilting This Week

Evicted that bit of nonsense forthwith, started stitching again. Not five minutes later I stitched a big pleat right into the front. Well. That little quilt is… Continue reading Can you believe this nonsense?
