I don't have any pictures of God. Hold on a second, maybe I do. We can focus on all the negative energy or we see and watch small things. The little amazing things in life. Going through the box, I came across this. God... "I think how great it must... Continue reading

Let's just say, I opened Pandora's box and have been processing it for quite some time. There are days I merely close it because some of it can be pretty brutal. Today however, I've found more joy in it than normal and no curses. Where it all began. Four children,... Continue reading

No Leash No Chain Went to a concert last night at the Boot Barn Hall. We can start with the terrible idea that the main performer was Billy Bob Thornton. Not exactly what to say about it other than it was... probably... what I was guessing it was going to... Continue reading

What happens when you realize you actually matter. When you become the change you want to see in the world? What I do is sew, little tiny pieces of fabric into quilt... it is what truly makes me happy. There are a lot of things that are thrown at you... Continue reading

I watch the birds. Robins - I have a new one and he's working so hard, he's persistent, he knows he needs to take care of his woman, who is most likely pregnant. The winds out here this spring have been undeniable but he won't give up. Not only he... Continue reading

x plus y doesn't always equal z. As a student we finally figure out to pull out all the unnecessary equations - the words that don't matter just put there to confuse us. So many words today that make no sense, often times I think my words don't make a... Continue reading

My roommate tells me I scribble. That may be true, maybe my brain just scribbles as well, I'm not quite sure I agree. I listen to everything, what I don't want to remember I make myself forget. It takes me a minute to forget, but I have to believe in... Continue reading

I absorb energy. The past few years, actually the past several years the energy I have absorbed might actually be killing me. The winds out here have been incalculable, the sound of roofing, siding, construction - my ears literally bleed. I had just got use to the ridiculous noise and... Continue reading

I found kindness in a box of crayons. They were a $1.99, the best $1.99 I've spent - because I learned something. I learned the colors of kindness. I think the most I learned about today was the color orange. I think it's often neglected or sometimes just ignored. What... Continue reading

He is definitely the son and the grandson of two amazing quilters. He is also the son of an amazing man. Probably not the most amazing man - but he was to me. He liked his whiskey and poached eggs and oh my GOSH his truck and the smell... he... Continue reading

I don't talk about her much. She was always indifferent to me growing up. She had a magnet on her refrigerator that said, "I'm not overweight, I'm under tall." However, she served an incredible purpose in my life. Still trying to figure out how her hair was white. I suppose... Continue reading

Miss Carol, Carol, meanie pants... I don't remember that much about her. She had dark hair, pixie cut - what I do remember is I was 18 and was told I was not capable of being an artist - because I had lack of perception. I'm sorry - how much... Continue reading

Where could it possibly end? Wait, it ends because of a road. You stop and stare and calculate. "Where exactly am I going?, is it necessary? does it serve a purpose?" Suddenly your train of thought becomes uncalculated... you become a pawn, your life, your existence is on a chess... Continue reading

I'm not smart. Most of the time I'm angry because I can't change the things in this world that I want to change. Everyday my skin gets thicker, my shoulders more broad, my heart more callus. I resort to music, focus on laughter, all the while realizing that I trust... Continue reading

I wake up everyday in an episode of I Dream of Jeanie. Never much realized the impact or appreciation for the Mid Modern Era, however, I can always learn. The day I stop learning, researching, I suppose that will be the day God is done with me. There is an... Continue reading

I truly desire to find beauty in everything... but truth be told, not much of it makes sense. In my opinion, if we try hard enough, exert enough love, energy, hope and faith we can not only see it, we in turn can live it. It took most of my... Continue reading

There is so much to talk about... so much to think about, so much to try and fix - I suppose that's why I LOVE water. Some days you can find me only in the bathtub. When nothing makes sense, when nothing calculates, when your heart is so broke -... Continue reading

I threw away most of my pictures, it just so happens that is what you do when we go through a transition. When you've been lied to, cheated on, stolen from - my Mom gave this picture back to me and it's one of my favorites. Question is, why? Very... Continue reading

Suppose we need to find it, that's not that big of a deal... so what, we just look. Take a little time to seek and find. I've found my beauty, my passion, my ultimate love - quilting. I've been blessed to know people who have the same passion. Needle and... Continue reading

It is never a good idea to watch the news. Or is it ever a good idea to get too involved with politics or religion. (I am not religious, I merely believe in THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT). That does not make me Catholic, an Evangelist, a... Continue reading

Need to get to Denver to drop off these to the quilter, truth is, I might get 45 done this year. So in turn, we start again. My quilts will not end up in an antique mall. Actually, I don't know if that's a reality or just a dream. To... Continue reading

I am related to my sister, or at least she's related to my Grandma. I don't much like appliqué, it's not that I don't like it - it's just not my thing. My Grandma loved it and so does my sister. My sister's name is Wendi and she is rather... Continue reading
