If my poor little blog was a cottage, the front porch would sag, the paint peel and the weeds would be waist high. It would be mournfully gazing over at me holding hands and skipping through the meadow with my new love. I feel guilty for neglecting my former friend, but there’s so much to […]

It’s been about a million years since I had anything as cool as this going on. In an awesome moment of boredom I discovered NOBUNNY was looking for a driver/road manager. Being the sometimes go-getter that I am, I immediately volunteered. How can you pass up a chance to go on tour with the best […]

NOT. It is, however, time for our annual trip to the Philadelphia area. This year we will be in a different area than before, one more suburban. I’m already missing my walks through center city and we haven’t even boarded the plane. Still, it will be nice to escape MI and get away. It’s hard […]

I’m finally using Flickr. Instagram has me sucked in to quilting swaps, and flickr groups for sewists and quilters. So now I am sucked in to making mosaics too. Here are a few of my favorites.   1. mini quilt, 2. Polaris Star, 3. Typewriter mini quilt, 4. FLiQS2 Received, 5. Foxy zip pouch, 6. […]

I have to confess, I’m no fashion designer. It’s sort of intimidating to look at the construction of the clothing in my closet and think I could replicate it. Sewing for myself isn’t something I do often, because I rarely find patterns that I fall for. Enter Skirt -A- Day Sewing by Nicole Smith! This […]

I saw a picture on instagram the other day of some really cute binding. In fact, I see lots of pictures of cute binding and having just finished a swap of fabric polaroids, it struck me that someone should do a binding swap. As I tried to think of who to ask I decided that […]

The kids are back in school. I don’t know why the quiet house always surprises me, and each year at the start of school I find myself missing the kids when they aren’t here. I will never miss the talking back or ugly looks when they are in a “mood,”  but something about not seeing […]

The summer days are long enough without facing the task of entertaining a 12 and 14 year old when it is raining. Since I have been working on a quilt for my husband as an anniversary gift, the kids were naturally curious about what I was doing. To my delight my sweet friend Andria Lisle […]
