  • Better Today

    I don’t know about you, but WOW! I didn’t see that coming. I expected jet lag which wasn’t too bad for this trip. I was tired and my feet were grapefruits (if you’ve seen me, I am a really tiny person and this was so out of character). The feet took two days to feel…

  • Dark or Light?

    When you’re making a mystery quilt (any quilt really), do you prefer a lighter background or a darker one? I think I have this silly unwritten rule in my head that all backgrounds must be light. I really need to jump out of this silly box and shake it up! For example, I had originally…

  • Classic Vintage

    Today was the day I got to sit for a few hours with block design books and peruse through to find those “normal” blocks, the “go-to” blocks of eras past. I found so many I wanted to use, but alas a quilt can only be so big! I found most quilts had lattice as well,…

  • Still Here

    I have been very busy with life for a few weeks, we have had extra grandchildren in the house. My sewing room became bedroom to a 16 year old grandson who sleeps like a hibernating bear! I haven’t had the time or energy to go in there and “work” since he got here. Now that…

  • Preparing the FUN…

    Our grandchild count in the house has been more than normal for the past few weeks. While we have the extras and my studio has become a bedroom, I have been working a lot on organizing fabrics and designs… getting ready to dig in and have some fun. My life recently has found me shoulder…

  • Back in Business

    My computer did make it home today and I did lose all the data that wasn’t saved to the cloud. I am missing a few quilts, but have paper copies of those, for which I am very thankful. I spent the entire day updating the software for the operating system and downloading all the additional…

  • Happy Mail!

    I don’t know about you, but it makes my day (week…year) when I get something in the mail that I knew nothing about. Today, I got the most amazing of gifts! I got a parcel with a couple of my favourite bags in it, PLUS so many sewing/quilting tools I have never seen before. To…

  • Happy Mail

    I had a better week this week. Don’t get me wrong, I usually have fantastic weeks… It’s just been a rough seven weeks with the virus and now the lingering symptoms. Doc changed the treatment plan today, so here’s hoping these fevers will go away for a long time! The puppies are doing well and…

  • In a Twixt Between Two

    I have two projects (well more than two actually) that are next in the line up of amazing designs I have for you. I have one with curves and (more than) one with only straight cuts. These are BOTH amazing designs and you are going to love them, no matter which we do. We will…

  • Sew Much Fun

    I am hoping you have made goals for this year, WOW… yes it’s 2022. Shane and I were talking the other day.. when we were young, 2020 sounded SO FAR AWAY, yet here we are! I have made some goals, most include YOU! I would love to have a project always going for you. I…
