What I found in making these, was that each new project you begin,, no matter how many spools of thread, or amounts of fabric that you own, there will always be at least one or more necessary colors that you don’t have. I needed a huge variety in the shades of red, Thus began the great “thread quest’, I can’t fathom that out of my entire collection of thread, massive as it is, I couldn’t find the exact shades of red that I wanted. Unbelievable, and I will provide pictures to impress upon you just how unbelievable this is..When I say that I have a massive stock of thread , enough to open my own store, it is no exaggeration.
I’m already thinking of fall, and the changes which it brings. That theme is behind my latest landscape art quilt, “Change, New Beginnings”. Wow, “time really does fly”, as the old adage goes! It becomes more evident and rings truer with each passing year. Change is inevitable, but with each change of season, we’re given a fresh start, of sorts. “I didn’t get to that last fall, but this year I’m going to….”. It’s up to us, the slate is clean, we can do the things which nagged away at us this past year. The changing of the seasons offers an opportunity for renewal. It’s a good time for change. Use it wisely because time really does fly!
My issue of Art Quitting Studio has arrived.I’m in it. Just opened it up, thumbed through a few pages and there I was! Who’d a thunk it? A whole article, a 1 & 1/2 page feature. I’m buying several copies, before they change their minds.

Just opened it up, thumbed through a few pages and there I was! Who’d a thunk it? A whole article, a 3 page feature. .
I’ve been rattling off about being featured in Art Quilting Studio magazine. The feature will follow the progress of making this quilt, and the inspiration behind it. It was about finding inspiration everywhere and grab a pic of anything that interests you. It doesn’t have to be super high quality photography. Take your phone andContinue reading “Today’s the day, I’m excited!!”
Pleas allow me to make excuses I have to admit it, lately I’ve been a little neglectful of my blog, posts have been a little sparse. The problem is, I’m running around in circles, like a dog chasing his tale.

Where do the little birds go in the winter for shelter? I’ve asked this question more than once, even on this very blog. During our recent uncharacteristic snow storm, with the cold chilling to the bone, it has taken become much more of a concern. Birds need to be fed when snow covering everything. I spentContinue reading “Where do the little birds go?”
Portland Or and rest of the state can breath a sigh of relief. The storm has broken, the freezing rain has given way to regular rain melting and the roads are safe again.

My hummer, whose feeder hangs from a suction cup attached to my kitchen window, and I have a reached a working relationship. All the details and duties have been ironed out to the satisfaction of all. I will provide food, immediately when it is needed. That’s the entire arrangement. It’s simple. I provide food instantly and reliably. If I fail to live up to my side of the agreement, I am subjected to a sound scolding.
