Fiber 5K to Fight Cancer

Cancer is a devastating disease that touches all of our lives – there is probably no one out there who hasn’t been affected by it in one way or another, either suffering it in one’s own body or having it touch the life of a loved one.

If animals can do it…

… why can´t we? Live in peace, harmony, and love,  I mean.  You’ve probably seen it before… when brought up together as babies, different animals do get along together, right?

Brrr… it’s cold!

There’s been very little sun around here the last few weeks. So I’ve basically been hibernating. And working, working, working!

Holiday Sale on Quilting Classes

I am a self-taught quilter. Until recently, I had never taken a quilting class in my life. Part of the reason for this is that there were no quilting classes available where I live. Add to that the fact that I prefer to learn on my own, through tutorials or manuals.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is not celebrated in Ecuador, but it is a tradition for our family. So today will be not the last Thanksgiving to spend together, but the last family get-together we will share at my mother’s house here in Quito, were all big family celebrations have taken place for the last four decades!

Language fun

I grew up in a bilingual, bi-cultural family. We spoke mainly English at home with my mother and father, although my brothers and I did seem to mix in a lot of Spanish, too. (The language of choice pretty much depends on the subject. Soccer, for example, is something discussed in Spanish, of course!)

I apologize to my regular English-speaking visitors for this post in Spanish – just this once. (There is an English version after the text in Spanish.)

A little bit of this… a little bit of that…

…Which is pretty much how this whole year seems to have been going. Scattered. That is, me feeling scattered. Not the year. Or?

MIA?

No… not exactly. I haven’t disappeared from the face of the earth… It’s just been a particularly hectic summer, and it looks like the last few months of the year are going to be equally busy.

I am CAT… and I will sleep where I want…!!!

My mom’s cat and companion of 16 years, Romeo Valentino, died yesterday. As any of you living with pets knows, the loss of these beloved companions is very painful, and it is going to take a while for my mom to mourn the loss of her companion.

Recycle your plastic bottles into…. a broom???

You will recall a while back I shared a nifty idea on how to use the neck of a plastic bottle and its bottle cap to create an airtight bag sealer.

    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.
