What’s going in with those I love the most

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.

Time with Lulu

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.

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.

Still stuck; something happy, something sad

A month after moving to my new place finds me pretty much the same: still kind of stuck.

It’s finished!

Well, kind of. At least all the construction part. But basically my mom’s new suite is done. Just a few odds and ends that will be taken care of over the next few days.

Building an extension

    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.
