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 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 […]

    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.
