Painting, cleaning, rearranging

My 19-year old daughter Jamie and I decided to switch rooms. One, because change is good every now and then.

So for the past 10 days Jamie and I have been busy sorting out and reducing clothes and all sorts of bedroom and bathroom items, painting, washing windows and shades, scrubbing and waxing floors.

    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.
