Well, I didn’t see that coming

I can always tell when I'm a bit stressed as blogging and quilting become a bit of a challenge. Several posts are in the drafts folder waiting for inspiration, and perhaps something else, the trash bin, the right time?

Stay Tuned: a Trip Report

I've traveled to two events for Floriani one about an hour outside of Philly, and the other about an hour from Knoxville. The next Hands on Sewing School is in Binghampton, NY January 5 - 7. These events are amazing from the word go. Kay Brooks teaches so much about stabilizers and how to use… Continue reading Stay Tuned: a Trip Report
