And we have a winner! Plus the quilt!

Thankyou thankyou thankyou to everyone who took the time to visit my blog and enter the giveaway. I had 230 entries on the blog and another dozen who liked the Facebook page, as well. Out of all of those comments, the lucky winner is… –drumroll, please– Congratulations to Rachel! You’ll be receiving the bright and…

My version of baby love.

The newest baby quilt makes me so happy; it’s soft and cuddly and the sweetest color combo.

Lost and Found

I didn’t get it all back, but there are some still on the old version of the site when I was still hosting it on WordPress. A relief, though I’m sad to lose several of the essays I’d written. What I have is better than nothing though, and I’ve definitely learned to be more careful…

Whoops

So, I guess I learned my lesson… I managed to, in one click of the ‘OK’ button, delete my entire blog. Two years worth of blog posts gone. I’m still a little flummoxed at this point, but I’ll start re-building it tomorrow. Tomorrow I will face the consequences of what I did and see just…

Going Coastal Is More Fun Anyway

My mother loves beach-themed anything and while she already has a lighthouse-themed quilt that he made herself, I’m thinking I might have to make something for her from this fantastic new line of fabric from Michael Miller. It won’t be available until summer, so that’s a nice reprieve. I’ve got plenty to do before then!

Strings and Things

Strings and Things

I have a love/hate relationship with thread. I need the variety, really, because there is nothing more frustrating that having to drive to the store in the middle of a project just because I didn’t have enough thread. I want to have it when I need it, but that means I need a bunch on…

Exploring Ashland

Exploring Ashland

I was asked late last week if I could chaperone my son’s high school when they went down to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (which is, btw, sort of a misnomer… there’s more than Shakespeare). I agreed and figured I could take the time to do some hand-sewing and explore Ashland for any fabric…
