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 to Beaumont… Continue reading Around Town, Reconstruction Update, and Personal Thoughts

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

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
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!
