What I most enjoy doing with my time!

The Applique Garden

Over the weekend we launched our new website…. and now you know what has been keeping me so busy over the last year few months. This, and Jamie’s wedding, and adjusting to a new life, and volunteering, and…

Machine Embroidery Applique

I LOVE Applique. I love to design applique, and I love to sew applique. And, until lately, pretty much everything I sewed was by hand – freezer paper applique was my favorite.

Treadle On!

Lita, my grandmother on my father’s side, had a big influence on my life and in many ways was responsible for instilling in me a love for sewing and crafts.

Finished quilt sampler

So, with all the wedding hullabaloo, one of the things I had forgotten to post about is my Craftsy 2012 sampler. You’ll remember I started writing about it here.

A crayon quilt

I mentioned in my last post that my daughter’s wedding took place at the Hacienda Picalquí, which belongs to the Fundación Brethren y Unida, one of the oldest NGOs in Ecuador.

Two new summer collections

It’s hard for me to believe some of you out there are experiencing sweltering heat while I still face chilly days and even colder nights day in and day out!

Are you ready for Christmas?

That is, for Christmas in July! Wow, where did the time go? It’s amazing to me that we are already at the mid-year point. And yes, that means that starting on Monday, July 1, we will be starting our traditional Christmas in July celebration at Angie’s Bits ‘n Pieces.

A quilt sampler

Well, I’m finally back in the quilting mood! That is, as time allows… still. There always seems to be a lot of work that limits my sewing time. Plus running around that means more hours in the car now that I’m living out in the country. However, even though there are still quite a few […]

Another cold day

Things haven’t changed much around here, have they? Another month gone by… and it is still wet and gray in this part of the world. This was – once again – the view this morning out of my bedroom window:

BOM Update

I thought that moving out to the country and living on my own would automatically mean A LOT of free time. Boy, was I wrong. I still do not seem to be able to find time to do everything I want and NEED to do! 🙁

Bling

So I’ve finished the little project from the Fabric Fancification class. Now… the whole purpose of taking a class is to learn something new, right? In all honesty, though, there wasn’t much I didn’t already know and wouldn’t have been able to do by myself, without taking this class.

    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.
