Time to brag: Opera iO

2014-309You will recall that one of the sacrifices made after moving out of town was Thursday sewing with my sewing circle. Fortunately for me, a year ago precisely my niece Ana Lía decided to join me on those days, and I finally had someone to share sewing with again. We have had to suspend those get-togethers for the time being, what with my move further away from her and because she decided to go back to school this year… Read More »

A little embellishing fun

2014-286Well, a full three weeks have gone by before I actually got around to finishing this little project. Family and work do come first, and it’s been busy on those fronts. But I did find a little time this weekend to add some beads and buttons to this little project. Read More »

501 Quilt Blocks (book review)

2014-285Although I have quite an extensive collection of quilting books, I still have a soft spot in my heart for the very first book that started my quilting library. I don’t know if it is just because as the only quilting book in my possession at that time I perused it so much until I left it completely dog-eared, or because it was gifted to me by my beloved Jared. :) In any case, I’d like to share my thoughts on in today.

A great day

2014-255You’ve seen me write about *our* Pedrito before. For the last year and a half he’s been handyman and jack-of-all-trades to my mother and me. More importantly, he has become family to us. Read More »

It’s a wrap! (Book review)

2014-245At times I feel like taking a break from “regular” quilting and try my hand at a small project in order to learn a new technique. Sometimes these creative breaks require time and patience, but at others learning a new technique can be incredibly easy! Read More »

Even more complex hexies

2014-249After my last post I recalled I have worked with a slightly different concept for pieced hexies before. Actually, they are even more complex than those Mickey Depre teaches in her Pieced Hexies class on Craftsy. Read More »

Pieced Hexies

2014-236Like many of you, I’m addicted to English Paper Piecing. And, yes, hexagons still are my favorite shape to work with, although every now and then I do enjoy breaking away from them a little, and incorporating other shapes. Read More »

Time for beads and buttons

2014-233July turned out to be an exceptionally busy month. Lots and lots of work. And because we were left without power for a whole week, which involved juggling my whole schedule around, I ended up having to work long hours the last couple of weeks. Read More »

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
