It's Monday again! Wow - time sure flies when you are having fun! I always like to start my week off with a little thoughtfulness as I plan for the week ahead...what did I learn last week? what did I accomplish? what didn't quite get done that needs to be put on this week's to-do… Continue reading Monday Musings – Less Is More
Musings: a period of reflection or thought, preoccupation, contemplations, pondering, dreaming.....add to that rambling.... Ah, Monday, that day that holds both excitement and apprehension. Excitement for the beginning of a new week and new adventures. Apprehension concerning deadlines and obligations. Somewhere there needs to be the balance! I'd Rather Be Quilting! Today I'm… Continue reading Monday’s Musings – Time to Walk Outside
I remember waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. The Jetsons and Yogi Bear were among my favorites. I especially liked the way Jane could look so perfectly made up when talking on her futuristic phone. If I could make that come true I might be tempted to use FaceTime or Skype....until then, no thank… Continue reading My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday
Forgive me dear readers, for I have been AWOL, it's been 11 days since my last blog ☺️ I wish I could blame it on just the recent freeze - gulf coast Texans can handle a Cat 5 Hurricane with a "bring it on" attitude but we are like the cowardly lion when it comes… Continue reading Winter Freeze
It does feel like time is standing still. But things are actually moving forward. Here’s the status update for things at the Overton household and The Quilt Rambler Studio (all under the same roof!)

Goals. Seems to be the buzz word this week! Some say they are best set one month at a time. Sometimes for me, it's just a daily thing as the to-do list in its entirety can get mindboggling. I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts to share my January monthly goal(s) then at the end… Continue reading Three Monthly Goals for January 2018
Happy New Year 2018! What a difference a year makes! This time last year I was celebrating a brand new studio redo. That Was Then In all honesty, the room really never stayed like this - it's a working studio after all and I tend to make "creative messes." It was certainly colorful! This is… Continue reading That Was Then, This Is Now
What a loaded question! I think it's so funny that we get all excited about turning over a calendar page when in reality it's really just another day...but I have to confess I get caught up in the idea of new beginnings! Somehow just the thought is stimulating, exciting, so much anticipation and imagination. Possibilities are indeed… Continue reading What’s In Store for 2018?
I get by with a little help from my friends! Especially quilting friends. Today my friend Dianne took a day off of work and brought her granddaughter Beyonca over to help me sort and organize my quilts and fabrics for storage. These are items that had previously been dispursed post-Harvey and taken by "quilt angels"… Continue reading Friends and Fabric
The past few days were spent enjoying family whereas the next few days will be spent enjoying fabric! Family - Home for the Holidays, Part 1 Christmas morning found my husband and I on a two hour trip across "the great divide" meaning we went from south of Houston to north of Houston to visit with… Continue reading Family and Fabric
