I’m vacationing in Tucson for a few days with my friend Jan. I’ll be back next week to tell you all about it!
I hope that some time you will have a chance to attend the Houston show, the US’s largest quilt show. It is an amazing experience, unlike any other show. Some interesting stats: 1,100 vendor booths 500+ classes/events 40+ Special exhibits 1500+ quilts/fiber art pieces 142 instructors from around the world 4 days of show 7 […]
I thought I would have time to post the rest of my PIQF photos but that was not to be. I also thought I would have time to make a donation quilt for the Festival fundraiser-that was also not to be. But I am ready to teach, mingle, learn and be dazzled by the quilts […]
I just made that up-“Sanity Sewing” is what you do just before you go crazy and after you have worked hard on your book and prepping for Houston for months! Don’t get me wrong, this is all good stuff and every single teacher at Houston is in the same boat. I just HAD to do […]
Fall is particularly welcome this year after record breaking heat this summer. We seemed to have instantly slammed into cooler weather and I’m delighted!

Hubby and I took a few days off and headed to Lake Tahoe. I hope to return rejuvinated and relaxed. Til next week….
As I thought about what to write about this week I realized that much of what I’ve been doing is making samples for my book and writing. I thought I’d share a short post on what it feels like to write a book. I’ll bet what I am experiencing is almost predictable-the ups and the […]
I am blessed with exuberant health, something I do all I can to maintain. I am just now recovering from 10 days of itchy, oozy, outrageously strong allergies. It was allergies, trust me. And I’ll spare you the details, but I couldn’t talk, think or sleep for many days. But, I am back and it […]
Almost two years ago I wrote my most popular post-a comprehensive explanation of Frixion pens, the heat erasable pens. For some reason there has been a huge flurry of repostings lately along with comments from readers about their experiences. You can read the post here if you’d like. I contacted the manufacturer when I wrote […]
