protect your tools from dust and damp

Changes. The one thing that stays the same is that nothing stays the same. As the spring clean blog hop is underway–on Day 2,  let’s talk H2O–water. Perspective can trick us. Imagine water carving a river so Grand that it creates a canyon. Okay, lets get the silliness going. Cause Grand Canyon is inspiring, but who is the real villain to be on the look out for in your creative space? Villains–Dusty and Dampness Dust is the arch-villian…

YAY! I won

I’m not even sure what I won, but winning is FUN isn’t it?   Today on Facebook I saw that @sizzix was doing a live video with @kidgiddy, so I popped in. Did I answer the question right the first time?  Nope. I first answered, IceCream with Sprinkles.  Seemed like a good guess what is Kerry Goulder’s favorite food. What do you do when you don’t know something–like the words IRL, IQF or IQM?  You can do…

Rejected (a fresh perspective and honest conversation)

The text below is taken word for word from a Facebook conversation that might not have occurred at this level if my blogposts were easier to respond to (my tech team is working that!).  I’ve not corrected any typos in the text below, and this is not out here as an example of perfect writing, but of real life conversation, with an award winning professional longarm quilter from Germany.  I’m honored to have received this feedback and…

The Circle of Art

As a juror for the Cherrywood Hand-Dyed Fabric Lion King Challenge, it was my privilege and honor to review all the quilts and select finalists along with two other jurors.  The depth of art is humbling.  The quilts that were not selected are quite good, seriously good.  All those in this outer circle, please hold your heads up high.  I’m proud that you accepted the challenge.  I hope that all of those who were not selected realize that you are not…

Spring Clean–what comes first, and who

Undone by numbers! Just like in school those problems, you know… If 2 people start driving at 6am in a beautiful Green Mountain State and drive towards their home with is 9.5 hours away. What is the chance that they will experience long delays in traffic? Well, that depends!  If you decided to post a daily response to a blog hop, and think to yourself, well I have all evening–the traffic hears you say that, so stop…

Orphan Block Roundup

Once upon a time in perfection-ville, quilters always made the right amount of blocks with perfectly matched points, and in the perfect colors for the perfect quilt. In real life, orphan blocks happen. Maybe your trip around the world, took a detour into wonderland or your “block-of-month” project became a roadblock.  Don’t let these quilt blocks pileup in your workspace (and on your conscience.) Join in with other resourceful quilters and rescue these lonely blocks from their sad fate…

  • being brave we nurture our future, treasure the love and teach without bias. My respect to all those parents and kids of the last sixteen years who rebuild trust and hope while ensuring safety in these uneasy times--where a smile can seem rude or callous on q day of pain. I smile that all those who give aid, that they feel the love, that unending awe , that honors their sacrifice #bernesemountaindog #bmd #moon #patriotday #parents #teachers
  • Baysox Season ended -- top of the ninth on day nine of month nine on this my twenty-ninth year after school. My words spill out in cadence with Giamatti's GreenFields. This game evolved, the minor leagues fly through games in under two hours. Pace of the Game rules in action. Pack up Baysox until next spring, to restart that pattern of life, and hope. @bowiebaysox @milb @ballislife #sports #lifelessons
