I am working towards some goals to become the person I want to be. The best description of this is that I am a life-long learner. A less generous description is that I am unfocused and undisciplined. I am a little flabbergasted that at 41 I still am making lists of who I want toContinue reading “But I Made This…”

I made this little sweet originally as a pillow. And then decided I wanted to see it everyday. So I converted it to a little wall hanging for my cubicle. I love the cheer and the wonkiness. And perfect sentiment for this day that KC is celebrating the world series win.
Beloved Baby Quilt
I quilt for attention. There, I said it. I love to make, but I love to give more. I want the person who receives what I make to truly love it and know how much I adore them because of the time I put into making them something with my time and hands. That isContinue reading “Beloved Baby Quilt”
Kittens! And Hello…
So nothing really since May. How dissapointing. My life has gotten pretty good. Work is crazy, crazy, crazy busy. But I have a job I like. What a difference that makes. I would love some more down time, for sure. But there are worse things. Lots of down time and a soul-sucking job. Very littleContinue reading “Kittens! And Hello…”
I love typewriters… and the internet.
A total cliche, but I have developed a love for old typewriters. Last year, my calendar at work was gorgeous pictures of candy-colored vintage typewriters. I loved them. And occassionally I will do a little wistful shopping for vintage typewriters on etsy.

My Stepdaughter’s Quilt
I have made lots and lots of quilts for other people’s children. This year I made a pledge to make quilts for my stepson and stepdaughter. Actually I made the pledge last year, but this year I pledged to really finish them. First up is my stepdaughter’s quilt. It includes her favorite colors. Well, atContinue reading “My Stepdaughter’s Quilt”
I made new pillows for our couch. Again. I think I might finally be happy with these. The last set I made were complex paper piece patterns that were fine enough, but I used a lot of beige linen and it just clashed with our dark grey couch. This time I used the perfect darkContinue reading “Tiny Rainbows!”
Rainbows and Woodgrain!
This is one of my favorite finishes ever. I am often loathe to start paper-piecing projects. They are such hard work. But I fell in love with this pattern by @jeliquits on instragram. I bought a layer cake and a charm pack of Kona solids and spent an hour identifying the colors to use. (I wantedContinue reading “Rainbows and Woodgrain!”
I have a lot of scraps. When I populated my new Raskogs, I did a scrap purge. I had to face the fact that I will not use a lot of the scraps I had saved. I saved about 75% of them and organized them by color. It was sad to see the rest go, butContinue reading “Scraps!”
I love you more than…
This popped up in my blog feed last week and I fell in love. I took a bit of time this weekend to make one for me and a friend. It was the sort of project that is nothing but easy and fun! It took about an hour and a half per pillow, and IContinue reading “I love you more than…”
