    Stitching Away

    I’ve been stitching away this weekend! Thought I’d do a quick post to show where I’m at on my Kaleidoscope Quilt project! I recently finished the last two “secondary” chunks and got them up on the design wall. I found pressing was the easiest when just pressing from the top down, and not caring what […]

    Kaleidoscope Quilt Progress

    Now that I have a hand-sewing project, I feel so much more at ease. Having something in my hands at night is great! It keeps me from spinning out into negativity.

    Hummingbird Step

    I just finished piecing together my second hexie hummingbird for a new quilt… and while it’s not the greatest photo, I just had to share! It’s on my design wall right now – time to pick a background fabric to appliqué it onto. I was thinking something on the darker side, since a lot of the fabrics are pretty […]
