I left last Wednesday morning for QuiltCon and was back this morning at 2:30 a.m. Six extra hours of airport time had me very thankful that I packed some handwork from my Alison Glass applique class in my carry on.... Continue reading

Cleaning out the kitchen last night, I stumbled across these artist trading cards that Jane painted last October. Using her own photos as reference, she used watercolors to render small snapshots of a trip that she and Fatty took to... Continue reading

I bought the bird fabric locally at a home decorating store. The selvedge says: “An Original Screen Print Design For The Platinum Collection. RICHLOOM Copyright MMXII US Canada.” Hope that helps!

I don’t have any plans for the rest of the bird fabric! I have a half yard and some scraps…not sure what to do with them.

I spent the better part of this past week's sewing time making new pillow covers for this little window seat nook on our front stair landing. It's been on my mental to-do list for the better part of a year... Continue reading

If you follow me on Instagram, maybe you saw a photo of my honest craft room earlier this week? A hot mess, for sure. I've been busy cutting and sewing and have not put a single thing away since the... Continue reading

When Stephanie Kendron of The Modern Sewciety asked if I would be a guest on her podcast, of course I said yes. I have been listening to the podcast since the beginning and love, love, love it! I often have... Continue reading

Here we are, 15 days into the new year, and I have yet to sew a single, solitary stitch. Strange, I admit. Ok, I have done a bit of needlepoint and a little knitting. I have also been cutting fabric.... Continue reading

At the beginning of December, having decided not to go through with my book, I found myself freed up from commitments and decided to make a few Christmas gifts. I don't know about you, but I find that as I... Continue reading

Well, hi there. Happy New Year. I hung up my new calendar on Friday, just one day into the new year. We traveled home from Colorado on New Year's Day, arriving a little weary, but gratefully, at nine p.m. I... Continue reading

I spied one through a restaurant window while Fatty and I were walking the streets of New York. My initial thought was one of disbelief. Really? A peony? It's not the right season. And then it hit me like a... Continue reading

We went downtown yesterday afternoon to blow our glass ornaments for the year. Fatty took the girls to do this eight years ago as a surprise for me and I have joined them every year since. It's hands down my... Continue reading

Yesterday was my first day back at painting in nine months. I knew I missed it, but until I picked up a brush and dropped blobs of oils on the palette, I didn't realize how much. I hesitated when I... Continue reading

Yesterday was a challenging day on many levels. The work we are doing in the house was going on in three places at once, four if you include the carpentry on the driveway. I wasn't prepared to have a bunch... Continue reading

I made three of these trees a number of years back. I have no idea where the smallest one has run off to. Run off being correct because, although the trees do not have legs, there is a cat in... Continue reading

The window guys were back yesterday, working outside in the cold. It was around 40 degrees, but it felt much, much colder. I offered coffee and told them to come in and warm up as needed. Today, they will be... Continue reading

The day started with a missed alarm, but a caught flight. The sun was shining when we landed, the skies were pouring when we went to bed. We walked and talked and shopped and ate and drank. A great start... Continue reading
