It’s in the Details – Studio Update

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

Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

A three-hour tour....a three-hour tour....we can all sing along to that famous theme song. It's been like a three-week tour as I sit here and wonder just where did May go? A week or two ago I posted about sewing outside and someone said: "just like Gilligan's Island!" So I just had to google to… Continue reading Sewing On Gilligan’s Island

Around Town, Reconstruction Update, and Personal Thoughts

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

Monday Musings – Make New Friends But Keep The Old

"One is silver and the other's gold." Do you remember that childhood song? I couldn't help but think of it these past few weeks as I traveled to North Carolina and back for Deb Tucker's Certified Instructor (CI) retreat and training. On our journey, we were able to stop and see friends, both new and… Continue reading Monday Musings – Make New Friends But Keep The Old

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
