    Ragtime Quilt #1

      I made this quilt when I was living in Phoenix about 8 years ago. I spent many months picking out the perfect flannels to go together. If I am right, I bought the majority of the fabrics in this quilt at Zoe’s Truck. (To this day one of the best quilt shops in Phoenix.) …

    Green Stuff

    Lately I have been getting a lot of use out of my juicer. Over the past month, I have made watermelon water, cantaloupe water, carrot/orange juice, carrot/mango/blueberry juice, and Green Stuff. What, you might ask, is in this Green Stuff? It is a combination of apples (2.5), cucumbers (.5), and ginger (1″). It is tart …

    Watercolor Project: Part 1

      I broke my toe in April. My toenail was also ripped up from the nail bed. It was not until mid-July that the broken bone healed. Since I could not play outside, sew, or even drive a lot, I was forced to branch out. Going stir-crazy at home, I decided to experiment with watercolor. …

    Jack & the bean stock

    It has been to long since my last post…. I have been trying to keep up with life (and lookie here, I finally did it!). I have had a heck of a time with the comment part of this blog. I have had over a 1,000 comments and have concluded that they are spam. BAD, …

    Quilt #2

      I thought today would be a great time to send this post out. This is quilt # 2 out of about 20 that I have made over the years. I used a Kaleidoscope pattern. I fell in love instantly with the crazy cat fabric and built the quilt around it. I bought all of the fabrics …

    Show and Tell

      I thought I would do a little show and tell on my latest and greatest. This is my friend, Mr. Cuisinart Griddler Junior, and he ROCKS! I had the George Forman Grill and it was so big and hard to clean that I never took it out. But then I met this bad boy. …

    Doggie Needs A New Bed

      Well, there I was, going stir-crazy, waiting to find out who won the Sliced competition—and really even more, wanting to know what the next project would be. I knew, win or lose, I would be making the next project. Low and behold, I find myself at JoAnn’s. As I am entering the store, there …

    iPad cover

    Now this is too cool. I love this design by Michelle! She, too, entered the Sliced competition. This iPad cover is so clever. It comes with a place to put your iPad, a pad of paper, and a pen.  And the buckle system just blew my mind. It allows you to close it like a …

    Grey Is the New Black!

      I have been in a grey mood this year. I think it is my new go-to staple. Pair it with any color and the item will rock. That is why I bought a jelly roll of pure greys from Putting on the Ritz by Bunny Hill Designs, added a yard of yellow, and called …

    A Happy Coincidence!

      I got this pendent some time ago. It was an extra in an order, a little thank you from its maker. After I got it, I put it away in my box for blue beads and knew that one day I would use it. After a long time had passed, I stopped by a …
