Monday Musings: Quilt Shows – Where Friends Gather

We just returned from the Golden Triangle Quilt Guild Quilt Show and Market in Beaumont - what a fun weekend! I love quilt shows, they are like family reunions! I get to see and visit with friends who don't "live in my neck of the woods" and I love it when I am able to… Continue reading Monday Musings: Quilt Shows – Where Friends Gather

Quilt Story Saturday – Why I Love Quilting With Friends

I love quilt retreats, guild sew-ins, or just setting aside time for quilting with friends, don't you? It's almost indescribable! Getting away from the responsibilities and taking time to focus just on the pleasure of quilting. Today's Quilt Story Saturday is a walk down memory lane of these special times with friends. Quilting With Friends… Continue reading Quilt Story Saturday – Why I Love Quilting With Friends

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. It certainly doesn't seem like 10 years ago, well, technically a little over 9 based on the time of year. Settle… Continue reading Quilt Story Saturday – My Dangling Carrot

Monday Musings – Less Is More

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

Monday’s Musings – Time to Walk Outside

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

My Colorful Past – Quilt Story Saturday

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

Winter Freeze

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

Is Time Standing Still?

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!) Yesterday the Repipe Specialist dropped the water lines to replace the old galvanized pipes. This is not part of Harvey damage… Continue reading Is Time Standing Still?

What’s In Store for 2018?

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?
