At the speed of lightening...or so it seems as we have had more than our fair share of lightening lately! 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
Or so the sign says! It will be a stress-free zone once it's in full operational mode. Yep, today we began moving shelving and totes from the storage unit to the studio. As our youngest son commented "Its good to see the rooms cluttered with things instead of debris" - that was certainly a welcomed way… Continue reading You Are Now Entering A Stress-Free Zone
But having a bucket proved to be useful! Especially when I discovered water rising in my lower level studio about 7 PM Thursday! Short and sweet version instead of the usual ramble as this has been a long night (it's actually the wee hours of the next morning as I write this). I was working… Continue reading Not Exactly on My Bucket List
I am so excited to finally announce the pattern release of Geese Over Galveston Bay. Patterns will ship next week! In true rambler style here's the story behind the quilt! The Goose Flew East Back around the turn of the century our family lived and worked on the road as modern day gypsies - we… Continue reading Geese Over Galveston Bay
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
