A couple of months ago our friend Geta was making fabric yo-yos, wishing she could own all the commercial yo-yo makers out there to be able to make all different sizes and shapes. That got me to thinking…
Now that all my *big* gifts are finished, wrapped, and ready to go, I have been focusing on small, quick gifts. You never know… it’s always good to have a few on hand.
I’m sure there are a ton of quilting blogs you already follow. And I do want to continue sharing some of my favorites. In truth, I seem to follow more non-quilting than quilting blogs. Why? Because they are an endless source of inspiration.
My grandma on my dad’s side was a pack rat. After she died, when we went to clean out her house, we found carefully organized drawers full of nails, screws, nuts and bolts… you name it. She could have opened a hardware store.
One of the fun things about this time of year is seeing how other people are creatively inspired. And although I cannot spend as much time blog hopping as I would like, I do make it a point to spend a few minutes every day (okay, half an hour!) checking out creative Christmas crafts.

During August we have been featuring Back-to-School projects on our website. If you haven’t been by in a while, make sure to stop in and check out these projects. All of them are super-easy and oh, so quick to make!
I think I’ve already mentioned that this year Julian just has not been as interested in sewing as in earlier years. What he has been enthusiastic about has been preparing fabrics for sewing. Today we did a little more fabric dyeing with shaving cream, for a small pencil case I will be making him for […]
Quilting by hand is probably what I enjoy the most of the whole quilting experience. It is the moment to center myself and quiet my soul. I find it incredibly relaxing, and it is a form of prayer for me. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t get much done if I hand quilted all my projects, so lately […]
