We interrupt this quilting blog to share current happenings on a personal level concerning our continued post-Harvey dealings. I once had a lady tell me to my face, in the presence of multiple peers, that "no one cares about you" in reference to personal stories on a blog, stating instead that my blog should be… Continue reading On A Personal Note: The Conex
Don't you feel that way sometimes? That the to-do list or calendar obligations seem to just run together as you race to check things off. Oh summer, you are going too fast! Forgive me, dear reader, it's been 13+ days since my last blog (grin). Settle in for a while and catch up on The… Continue reading Sew Much To Do Sew Little Time
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
Thought I'd take a moment to catch my breath and "report in" a few details of this past week or two. So sit back, put your feet up, and settle in for a photo ramble before some transparent thoughts concerning my current worldview. It's been a wild four weeks! A month ago we were heading… Continue reading Around Town, Reconstruction Update, and Personal Thoughts

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!) 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?
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
(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
