It is with a heavy heart that I made the decision to cancel my Onboard Quilting Excursion!™ for the November 2020 Quilting with The Rambler & The Redneck event. Our cruise attendees have been notified. (Please check your email for the cruise newsletter and helpful link.) It's not easy to let go of a dream,… Continue reading Not According to Plan
en·dur·ance - the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way. One would think this would be a great word for 2020 as we have all had to endure more than a few difficult situations in just the few short months of this decade…true…but that’s not what I’m… Continue reading Endurance
I woke up rather emotional today. I’m sure you can relate. As the country song goes “some days are diamonds some days are coal.” I struggled to wrap my brain around this isolation thing ~ I mean, seriously, I have worked from home the majority of my life, so why am I finding this so… Continue reading Fine Dining ~ At Home
There is a historical marker in my community by Galveston Bay which reminded me that we, as both Texans and especially as Americans, are a resilient people. I dare say not a community across this great land has been spared of some sort of calamity in its past history – from blizzards to floods, fires… Continue reading Resilience
The title of this post could be multiple choice (a) chasing rainbows (b) rough roads and rainbows or (c) follow your dreams. Actually it is a tad of each. Warning Will Robinson, transparancy ahead, proceed with caution! First Things First - Chasing Rainbows It all sorta started Sunday morning heading to rehearsal prior to the… Continue reading Chasing Rainbows

Forgive me dear readers, it's been 15 days since my last ramble...and I promise I've not been muzzled (although some may wish that could happen every now and then)...life has been a whirlwind (and thankfully… Continue reading How Fast Can The Quilt Rambler Ramble?
March winds. Looks like change is in the air. Or so the saying goes. For this rambler its been a crazy month ~ as a friend just texted me "you seem to be on the cutting edge of faith-testing." Here's what's been happening in and around The Quilt Rambler studio this past week... A Good… Continue reading On a Wing and a Prayer
Happy New Year! I realize it's the close of the 3rd day already, but it's never too late to wish someone a Happy New Year is it?...well, maybe there is a point when it's time to refrain from the greeting ~ probably before the next big holiday I'd imagine. Who writes these rules anyway! Regardless,… Continue reading I’ve Got A Planner and I’m Not Afraid To Use It!
I love turning over a new calendar page, and today, December 1st isn't without exception - the only exception is it has come too quickly! Sew much to do, so many things that will be left undone simply because there "isn't enough time". Such is life! Yesterday was a day of reflection as my thoughts… Continue reading A Moment To Reflect
Many times we refer to a decision to change as a do-over, turning over a new leaf, or a second chance. Sometimes that second chance isn't by choice, but by the mercy of God, and we are grateful that there is a second chance. Things just happen for a reason. We carry on! I can't… Continue reading Second Chance
