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.

Time Out

At a time when I probably should have been busy packing and out looking for a new home I started to feel a little overwhelmed by it all and decided to halt things a little to try and get my bearings. So for the the past week and a half  I simply shut everything out […]

Halloween around the corner again

Over three weeks ago I started working on several Halloween projects. When I work on any one particular project involving several similar but separate elements, I usually draw and draw and draw, and then select my favorites from all those drawings.

Itty Bitty Blanket Stitch

I am a really, really lucky person. Take my quilting friends, for example. As you know, I have a small sewing circle that meets every week. The women in this group were once my students, but after learning the basics they just sort of attached themselves to me (and I to them) and we developed […]

Calorie free treats

Open for business!

Thanks to my amazing techie (son Jared), our new pattern shop has gone live… two weeks earlier than planned! He has been amazingly patient in setting this up and helping me to learn a new system. So we’re ready to go!

    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.
