Bucket List – published

On my list of things I wanted to do was “get published in a quilt book”.Debra Gabel of Zebra Patterns  was working on a second book and put out a call for projects made using her designs.  I jumped at the opportunity! Debra offered a lot of flexibility -we were allowed to add or delete items from her patterns, same as future book owners will do when they buy her book.  As well as make whatever type of project we wanted, that…

Expect Excellence

falling rocks

I tested gravity yesterday – when high heels meets spilled water on a hard floor the result is a fabulous fall… My biggest injury was to my pride, even though my knees are a bit sore.  In real life, you don’t get up as fast as Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality. My biggest reward was a huge ah-ha! if we don’t take risks, we stay safe – but if creativity doesn’t take risks, it may be craft, but is it…
