12x12x12 lessons

Stock up on Wonder Under when 1/2 price at Joann’sSet up 2 sewing machines so can go between free motion and sewing/piecing 😉 if you have at least 2 machines why not. Please don’t take this as an endorsement of overmachination. I’m down to 3 machines from a high of 5, not counting my serger and my needlefelting machine -if count those and I am back to 5 and if you count the treadle it’s six, but…

Make It Work – Reveal day 12

You heard my trials and tribulations yesterday. I didn’t know what I wanted to “make”. I knew I wanted to “make” something. During this Dozen Days, on my design wall is pinned an index card with “Make It Work” scribbled on it.  I totally believe in the power of positive thinking.  How many times in this Dozen Days did I use something that existed before, where I had invested time and effort then found a way to…

Life on the Edge – revelations of day 11

Screech go the tires!After putting the first 10 days quilts up on the design wall, I sat back and took a good look.  First I was happy, enjoying my creations and then SLAM my creativity hit the proverbial brick wall. All along, I had been smart in putting away previous days quilts.  Seeing it up there didn’t give me a clear canvas, an open mind or any space for creativity to fill.My OVERTHINK started up in overdrive.…

I think I finally made “it”…  everybody talks about “it” cause they want “it”, well I’ve got “it” now!If you think I will live “it” down or stop “it”, you really don’t know me… Imagined a quilt made of clothing labels* Saved clothing labels for “it”*,and  was given clothing labels* (receiving them in the mail, in person, via messenger; and yes, I will still accept more, this is not my last label quilt) Created light colored applique…

Bloom – Reveal Day 7

I love my flower cogs (flogs), I find these to be a happy shape. I love when Art makes me happy!  Many happy mornings were spent watching Bob Ross painting happy clouds.  Again I diverge, but wait, isn’t divergence part of the journey?  So I take this moment to thank those who came before and inspired me and taught me I can be myself and I can be silly, you don’t need to be what others think…
