Rotary Cutting

Although things have been rather hectic around here lately, with little time for sewing, I always manage to squeeze a few minutes in.

Carnival Weekend

As in many other countries of the region, this is a long holiday weekend here in Ecuador, celebrating Carnival. A lot of people leave the city, particularly to go to the beach. As to myself, since I live my life doing what I most enjoy, the idea of going off on “vacation” is a strange […]

Measure it!

I’m thinking I might just have to think my position on following a BOM project. If I say so myself, our Itching to be Stitching project this year… is turning out to be fun!

How to make a silk thread knot

You’ve heard the saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” If that is true, I’m wondering how many words a video is worth? Hmmm….

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

Cooking is not my number one favorite thing to do. I would rather bake, but even that seems to happen only around Christmas time. Yet for the last couple of days I’ve been doing my own version of baking. And I’ve just pulled out some yummy cupcakes and cakes from my oven. 🙂

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!

Rose of Sharon

I have now finished the second UFO I committed to this month. I’ll probably get one more done this weekend, but it looks like I’ll be falling short from the four I had planned. I’m not going to pound on myself over that, however. I’m just happy to have gotten this far!

A little more insanity

I love quiet weekends when I am actually able to dedicate several hours at a time to sewing! And on this particular weekend I have actually been able to get quite a bit done.

Halfway insane and a tree full of owls

Our sewing circle met again today… and yet I forgot to take photos. This week everybody decided to leave the afghans we are crocheting aside, and work on them in the evenings, as it isn’t as hard on the eyes as sewing is. Thursdays, therefore, will be dedicated  to working on the Insane About Baltimore […]

Are you an EQ Junkie?

And –like me– do you absolutely love coffee? First thing in the morning, with desert at noon, and even late at night?

    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.
