I have always loved geometry, in fact I fondly remember the joy of making a reference notebook in 5th grade drawing the different shapes, adding all the formulas on how to find the perimeter, area, angles of triangles, and such that pertained to each shape, complete with colored pencil drawings. It was a masterpiece. I wish… Continue reading Designing A Quilt Pattern from Concept to Print
Today I am truly missing my students. I miss the excitement and joy of teaching ~ sharing the things I have learned, passing on the joy ~ hoping to make quilting contagious! Contagious - now there's a word of the year. One can only hope it's the word of the first part of the year!… Continue reading Missing You
I would like it better if I were on the island today - or in the middle of the Caribbean on a cruise ship...but alas, I'm not. I'm still stuck in winter on the Texas gulf coast, where recently we broke all sorts of records with a high of 81 and now it's dark, dreary… Continue reading I love Island Time
Most folks are already planning for their Friday and upcoming weekend while many are actually planning ahead a week for their shopping route on Black Friday! The Quilt Rambler studio is not a quilt shop - I operate out of my home and have to explain this a lot to callers who have found me… Continue reading It’s Not Friday Yet
At the speed of lightening...or so it seems as we have had more than our fair share of lightening lately! Forgive me dear readers, it's been 15 days since my last ramble...and I promise I've not been muzzled (although some may wish that could happen every now and then)...life has been a whirlwind (and thankfully… Continue reading How Fast Can The Quilt Rambler Ramble?
March winds. Looks like change is in the air. Or so the saying goes. For this rambler its been a crazy month ~ as a friend just texted me "you seem to be on the cutting edge of faith-testing." Here's what's been happening in and around The Quilt Rambler studio this past week... A Good… Continue reading On a Wing and a Prayer
March is entering the books with all sorts of crazy fun "March madness" going on in and around The Quilt Rambler studio. I have high hopes for lots of accomplishments (aka deadlines) for the next few weeks. It's been dreary weather lately so naturally it's a good time to sew. But then again, anytime is… Continue reading What’s Up March!?!
When does one plus one equal three? No, this is not "new math." Sometimes one week leads to another and then another until I noticed it's been three weeks since I've blogged...but that's not the answer to the riddle either! It's like an algebra question, you have to wrap your brain around it and get a… Continue reading 1 + 1 = 3
Many times we refer to a decision to change as a do-over, turning over a new leaf, or a second chance. Sometimes that second chance isn't by choice, but by the mercy of God, and we are grateful that there is a second chance. Things just happen for a reason. We carry on! I can't… Continue reading Second Chance
We had our first spill the other day. Glad to get that over with! Can you see it? I was walking through the "big house" with my arms loaded with take-out Schlotzsky's sandwiches headed to the tiki hut for lunch when somehow the paper cup with my drink went flying and crashed on the floor… Continue reading It’s in the Details – Studio Update
