Adapting in a time of crisis from Quilt in Piece

A Reflection on Acts 2:42-47 and the modern Church during Covid-19 18 May 2020 This week, I was reflecting on the Church (all churches – for my studies); the functions of the Church as it was in the Early Church as seen in Acts compared to the functions of the Modern Church, as we are living it now (or least as we experienced it before the Covid19 pandemic and during the lockdown), and I started wondering, where has our passion gone. When did we stop being passionate followers of Jesus and started becoming a passerby to God’s Church? Where ...

Meet the Happy Dressmaker from From the Strawberry Patch...

I received a recorded voice text from our youngest granddaughter, Lynnleigh, this morning as we were eating our breakfast. "Nana, I made a dress" she said; it was accompanied by this photograph. Doesn't she look proud of herself? She should be! She subsequently sent three more little videos explaining how she accomplished this dressmaking feat. It was all her own idea; she used two T-shirts,

Planting from From the Strawberry Patch...

When the days run together in endless succession and the news isn't always good, there's something inherently therapeutic about digging in the dirt! This morning I made up a bunch of my own potting mix from a blend of garden soil, peat moss and vermiculite and set my sights on getting annuals potted up for the porches and patio. I felt so good to take control of outside beautification through

Sorting It Out from From the Strawberry Patch...

With nowhere to go, and a stash of fabric and supplies on hand, it's like being on a never-ending retreat; these are the days we quilters have been stockpiling for all those years! But-- I need to slow down and sort this out. I have always been that person who's thinking of the "next quilt" before I finish what I'm working on now. With this current situation, for me, it's worse than ever. I

On The Plus Side from From the Strawberry Patch...

This is a re-post of sorts from the spring of 2014. I know that there are no shortage of quarantine sew-alongs and patterns out there to stitch up while we are sheltering at home. Here's one more. If there was ever a time to make a quilt oozing of positivity-- this is the time! These blocks were designed in EQ and are super quick and easy to sew; believe me, the hardest part will be selecting

D.E.A.R. Time from From the Strawberry Patch...

Since we've created the new porch space to enjoy we've added a new element to our daily schedules. No matter what Mr. Goodneedle or I are doing at 4:00 PM  we Drop Everything And Read for an hour. We have really come to enjoy this custom over the past two weeks and we hold each other to it, if I'm busy in the sewing room and might even consider skipping a day he encourages me to leave what I'm
