Monday I set a goal to piece 6 blocks every day. Well that hasn’t worked out so well. Between repair people, garden chores and dyeing these 6 blocks are all I have to show for myself this week. I cut... Continue reading

We checked the boxes yesterday and things are looking good! There are 6 Bluebird eggs! Usually there are 5 so maybe they are working hard to replenish the flock. Well I was wrong about Box 2. Clearly that’s not a... Continue reading

That’s pretty much the only sound coming from my sewing room this week. These 6 blocks are the extent of the sewing that’s happened so far this week. I did finish the materials and samples for a class I’m teaching... Continue reading

Posting 6 days a week has become a habit and it feels really weird when I miss a day. So today I’m mostly just checking in because there’s no real sewing to report. This past weekend was about the yard... Continue reading

I didn’t get much done this week on the wall. I only have 1 new section to share. The idea for this one came out of a design book. I painted 3 of my glass blobs black for the centers.... Continue reading
