A blessed time

Do you feel 2016 has been a tremendously chaotic and painful year for our world? It seems to me this last year has been charged with more hate, turmoil and sadness than in previous years.

Because of all the time taken in house building this year, work in general and this blog in particular have fallen way behind. I am now scrambling to catch up!

More house pics

Believe it or not, three months after having moved into my new house we are still finishing things. Hopefully that will all end by tomorrow, and I will finally be able to move on to other things. Like sewing, and all things Christmas!

It’s about time!

Oh, yes… it’s been a long, long hiatus to be sure. Nearly a year now without blogging. The reason being: I’ve been building a house.

The house continues to grow!

The walls of my earth-rammed house are finally all up! This is the most labor-intensive part of the process, and also the longest.

One of the most important things that have happened to me this year has been the time given to me to enjoy with my sweet granddaughter, Alexia.

A Victorian Advent Calendar

I’m a big Jacquie Lawson fan, and love using her greeting cards for all kinds of occasions all year long. My absolute favorite, however, has to be her Advent Calendars. Haven’t missed one yet!

Some of my favorites this year

Since I really haven’t done much sewing this year, I’ve been living vicariously through my designs. Looking back over the years, I can see growth in my drawing skills. More perfection, and more ambitious designs.

Just a little bit of handwork

I haven’t really done much sewing in the last few months. Besides following along the construction of the house, I have been spending a lot of time working ahead on projects for next year. (I hope you will enjoy what is coming!)

Way too long… but I’ve been building!

You must think I’ve fallen off the deep end. And sometimes it has actually felt like that. Yep, it’s been six months since I last posted, and it’s time to catch up.

Building in Ecuador

Yep. It’s certainly been a while since I last posted. The reason being that over the last few weeks building has been a very large part of my life.

The First Hexie Flower

It’s been well over a month, and that’s how long it’s taken me to piece the 37 hexies that make up one of the five large flowers in my Not My Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.

    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.
