Things I like, A New Bundle, and Staying on Track

It's Tuesday. I like Tuesdays. For starters, I like them most because it means Monday is behind me (which often means I'm at least somewhat caught up after the weekend) and I still have the whole week to accomplish things. It's also January and I like Januarys for the exact same reasons I like Tuesdays, except … Continue reading Things I like, A New Bundle, and Staying on Track

Quilt Market, Round 2: Upcoming BOMs, Growing, and Oh Yes – Bees

Yesterday marks a whole week that I've been back from Quilt Market. My, how time flies when you're playing catch up - but now that the dust has settled... Some of you may recall that my previous trip to Market last spring resulted in a delayed, rather underwhelming post about Market itself, and more about … Continue reading Quilt Market, Round 2: Upcoming BOMs, Growing, and Oh Yes – Bees

Be My Neighbor Block 6

Whew - What a weekend! I'm thrilled to report that among other things, I got to watch my #4 play college lacrosse and I also sewed LOTS.

And Sometimes You’re in the Game with Both Feet…

...running with the wind at your back and the road ahead is straight and long, at least for the moment!

Shall I just cut to the chase here, Dear Blog Followers? It's Monday at 5:10 PM here in Serendipity Woods and guess who just DID NOT get her Be My Neighbor Block done in time for today's post?

Be My Neighbor Sew Along, Block 2

In general, I'm not a 'fallish' kind of gal - but today's kind of fall, I'll take! I'm sharing the view outside my studio window this morning (from outside my studio window).  The sun is shining, upon my favorite little dappled willow tree, it's cool enough for a sweatshirt but a jacket is not yet … Continue reading Be My Neighbor Sew Along, Block 2

The Sometimes Perplexing Scant 1/4″ & What’s Thread Got to Do with it?

"Use a scant 1/4." I've read this in multiple patterns and though it's not necessarily a difficult concept to get my arms around, knowing why - or more importantly when - to use it has always escaped me for some reason, until yesterday.
