  • The Privilege of Quilting

    The Privilege of Quilting

    Recently, I entered a quilt into another show: QuiltCon. It was a big decision this year. I have to be patient and wait to find out if it’s accepted or not. My expectations are set very low as I’ve entered every year and have never had a quilt accepted. I entered my Manipura quilt. I’m […]

  • Recovery.


    I feel as though I’ve spent my whole summer in ‘recovery mode’. I’ve been working hard on my digestive and pain issues with diet and exercise.  I’ve been working on my emotional issues with meditation and quilting.

    Happiness Is…

    THIS: My husband snapped this photo of my daughter and I sewing together late the other night. It’s pretty real. As in: unglamorous and messy, but it makes me so happy to be able to spend time with her this way! While I’m working on my Hummingbird No.2 hexie quilt, my daughter, is working on her first […]
