Thread of the Week
Twist! A few years ago I hosted a quilted block of the month and now I've started with the thread of the week or month depending on what's going in my immediate world. As you know I love thread, how it holds things together and how it dances over the surface of a quilt. Sometimes… Continue reading Thread of the Week

Sunrise, Reading & Creativity
Good morning friends! The view of the sunrise from the front porch is glorious. After a few pages of John Cleese's book Creativity I'd take another shot of the morning sky.

Oh my goodness this wasn’t easy
