More to the Story

Before getting into todays post please pray for the repose of the soul of Joan Hawley: to say this is a stunning and heart breaking loss is an understatement. My prayers and condolences for Joan's family and the quilting community. And now please allow me to share two Quilted Features Interviews with you. First up… Continue reading More to the Story

Well this is quite the week! Click Here.

Normally on a Tuesday like this I'd be in the shower already getting ready to go teach the Advanced Beginner Class at Poppy Quilt & Sew and going to book study at my parish tonight. Instead I'm at my kitchen counter staying home with what is allergy related sinus thing (no temp, not achy). We've… Continue reading Well this is quite the week! Click Here.

Road to California Redux

The Uber driver picked me up at the hotel Thursday morning to take me to the Ontario Airport to head back to Texas.

At some moment she needed work and ended up working for the concession stands… Continue reading Road to California Redux

This is a bit surreal

Friends. It is a bit surreal this moment. Seeing these quilts hanging at Road to California as a display, with the descriptions and poster is simply surreal. And so I share some of the images from the exhibit (I'm not sure I got all of the quilts) without further comment, other than to say I'm… Continue reading This is a bit surreal

I find it profoundly odd

that I can go for weeks without writing some witty and pithy thing here. Can you hang on for a moment, I need to go make coffee, change the laundry over and wait for a friend to come to use my Handi Quilter Moxie. Be back in a few. Copies are available at Road! My… Continue reading I find it profoundly odd

Goals, Video & Moving Forward

Friends, please join me in sharing some of the beauty of this week. While I know I still need some time to reflect and think things through there are some good highlights. I've mentioned that one of the Priests I worked with in ages past often said, "We do not need new teaching, we need… Continue reading Goals, Video & Moving Forward

Does this ever happen to you?

Where you finally get all the bits and pieces lined up ready to go and then a wrench gets tossed into the works, effectively derailing what you're doing? And because of what it is you can't really be mad about it first because you really have no control over it and second because that will… Continue reading Does this ever happen to you?

A Shout Out to Alex Anderson

Oh goodness this is a throwback isn't it. This is from 2008 from a Ricky Tims Quilt Super Seminar just north of Albany New York. I was super new to the wonder-filled world of professional quilting and Alex is beginning what I've enjoyed as a delightful adventure hosting The Quilt Show, and the whole development… Continue reading A Shout Out to Alex Anderson
