Don’t let this picture fool you. It’s stinking hot in Oklahoma. And I really shouldn’t complain. It came much earlier last year…and stayed. Without going into my entire medical history ( I have Lupus Nephritis), let’s just say that I can’t deal with the heat. Or the humidity. Or the[Read more]
Pinwheel quilts have become my go-to pattern. Grab five or six fabrics and you’re good to go. I think there’s just about as much pressing as there is sewing!

I have so much to say about this project and none of it good. What started out bad from the beginning, is just about done. I’ll tell ya the story next week.
I love to discover new craft blogs. I could waste away my day looking at them. I came across Craftyrie today and saw where she’s putting together a HUGE craft blog directory. At this point, they’re just listed in random order, but I spent a few minutes browsing through and discovering[Read more]
I’ve become so interested in making quilts lately, that I seem to completely ignore the reason I started this blog in the first place. Which was is, to complete home projects. I can finally cross “artwork in the corner” off The List. I have this bad habit – or maybe it’s a[Read more]
