quilting time

end-of-year wind down:
look back and be thankful, look
forward and prepare.

quilt patches - the pinks and peaches

Still working away on this quilt that I started back in 2007… it’s almost 2010 now, and I’m still piecing together patches for the top. I ran out of half of the fabrics, so I’m having to substitute with similar fabrics, fabrics that I say have a similar “blur value”. It’s a good project for right now, since I’ve got all the materials here and plenty of free time to work on it.

I’m also almost done with haikus! Just a few more to go and I’ll have 365… can’t say it’s been as easy or as quick as I expected, because there were lots of days where I had no idea what to blog about. I am relieved to be close to the finish, but I probably will miss it soon.

making things

the urge to create
bubbles at the core until,
volcano-like, bursts.


Living in two places makes crafting a challenge; all my zippers and bobbins and favorite fabrics are at school, while here I actually have space to make things. Now the challenge is to make something that doesn’t have a zipper…. never realized that I incorporate zippers into everything!

Or I could just order another huge lot of ’em… zipper buying is always good for the soul.


house full of people
stretches to fit even more
holiday happy.
