Quilt Story Saturday – My Dangling Carrot

Today's Quilt Story Saturday is a tale of a quilt I created and called "My Dangling Carrot".  Leftover orphans blocks were included in the quilt featured a few weeks ago called My Colorful Past.

That Was Then, This Is Now

Happy New Year 2018! What a difference a year makes! This time last year I was celebrating a brand new studio redo.

(Photo Credit, Eric Overton, Dickinson Texas after Hurricane Harvey) How do I say thanks to the many people who have influenced my life this past year? With tears in my eyes, actually.  This wasn't exactly the post I had planned for today but in going through photos of 2017  I knew this had to be my… Continue reading It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times

We Interrupt This Christmas Countdown
