Bloggin’ for some me time

November 15, 2017

Bloggin’ for some me time… I am not even going to do the whole “sorry I haven’t posted in a while” speech.  I have just been busy, working, away, etc, etc, etc.  I started venturing past my quilting and into the world of garment making.  I have also been just playing with my machines (hello […]

Not your grandmother’s quilt…

June 4, 2016

I remember when I was in my early 20s (which wasn’t really that long ago) talking to some co-workers of mine.  I am a teacher and after a long weekend, one of them asked me what I did over the weekend.  To which I replied,  “I finished a quilt.”.  Anyone who has achieved this task […]
