Catching up: the Bedroom, the Porch, and the Garage

There hasn’t been a lot of sewing around here, but I have been working diligently on my Dollhouse BOM blocks, and a few other projects I am still finishing up.

The Nursery and Bathroom

Working on the 2018 Dollhouse BOM is certainly providing me with an opportunity to try out different techniques.

Enough is enough

I learned to crochet at my grandmother’s knee when I was five years old.  Quilting is quite certainly my true passion… but I always seem to have some crochet project going on. In part because of that strong connection with my grandmother, in part because it is easy enough to pick up at any moment, […]

Done, done, DONE!

And this is the last I hope (ever) to write about this. It’s embarrassing that it’s taken me so long. So much so, I actually had lost track of when I began it.

My Weekend Project

Quite a while time ago I was gifted several patterns that I never sewed, thinking I never have enough time for my own designs, much less for someone else’s. Boy, was I wrong.

A finished project

I didn’t really get a lot of sewing done during all of 2017. I’m hoping that will change this year. Having (finally) organized my new sewing studio will certainly help… I feel more motivated to start new projects.

Another day, another BOM!

I read somewhere that January 15 is Blue Monday this year, and as such the most depressing day of the year. It’s all based on some mathematical equation much too complicated for me to understand. What I do know is that even though it is a cold, rainy day outside, I certainly am not blue… […]

Let’s try this again!

Yep. I sure haven’t done too good over the last two years when it comes to blogging. Lots of changes and a fair amount of upheaval are my excuses. That is no longer the case, however. I have pretty much settled into my new house and am back to my regular routine, and it’s time […]

2017 Free BOMs

It’s that time of year when everyone is checking out new projects and planning which ones to sew this year!

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.

    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.
