Three of my art quilts were juried into a show at a local gallery that opened today. I was excited to visit a gallery I had never been to before and to see all the awesome art quilts. The show is up until March 1 and the Blue Hollomon Gallery is fantastic. If you’re local, stop by to see the show.

Hockey! My favorite part is the white stitching to look like laces.

A happy bike for my favorite day of the week! Thursdays are great – almost the weekend, but far away from Monday.

This quilt is part of a trunk show display of my art quilts at the quilt shop where I work.
It’s fun to talk to customers about my quilts and patterns.

Her Imagination is Wild

After a few weeks working at the quilt shop, I find myself seeing possibility in fabrics, I might overlook if I were browsing the store. It’s dangerous (to the budget) and fun!

Hockey Fun

We may not have snow, but we do have ice – there’s even been people skating on streets. I often see people playing hockey on the local lakes and many of the schools have rinks that double as basketball or tennis courts in the summer.

There’s been rain and there’s ice here, but no snow. However, I know some of you are enjoying snow this winter. I hope you get a chance to build a snowman or make snow angels or build a snow fort.

Enjoys Quiet Moments

This week I have been grateful for some quiet time to catch up on bookkeeping, listen to podcasts, make lists and dream.

I’ve also been gathering sketches to turn them into patterns. For those of you who have used my patterns, I need your advice. Which do you prefer when tracing the appliqué desing: pieces separated (option A) or image assembled (option B)?

Dancing on Ice

Thursday, 28. January 2016 6:16 | Author:

Once, when much younger, my brothers, friends and I slid down the bank of a creek to play on the ice – it was a so much fun to run and slide on the ice. I remember attempting to glide on a a rink a year or so later with actual skates – it did not go well. That single blade and my ankles didn’t get along. My idea of skating now, is socks on the clean kitchen floor.

I imagine this girl is like many people here, she grew up skating on the frozen lakes, lagoons and ponds around town.
