Hard Times... from Sew Sunshine


abound right now so I am looking at today as a small win. I have not been sewing hardly at all in the last few months. My eyes and other issues have not been great. I am to the point right now where I feel I either do what I can while I can or quit. I don't want to quit. I have been able to read on my tablet with the lighting on it set to a mild bright. 
Yay! That is progress. I decided since that was going pretty well I wondered what I could do in ...

Works in Progress... from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 Hi everyone! I am extremely excited. There are so many new things happening all at once that I'm not sure which way to turn. But in a good way, you know? 


For one, there's my booth at Griffin's Antiques and Main St. Market. It's sort of an antiques store, flea market, artist market and cafe all rolled into one huge building. There are almost 70 booths, and the items range into just about anything. One booth is called SWAG. Two young girls who make and sell swags. That's it. Swag decorations of all shapes and ...

7 tips to start and grow your blog from Professional Quilter

Do you have a blog?

I have been blogging consistently since early 2007. First my blog posts were monthly with an occasional extra post. Within 18 months I went to twice a month. Another 18 months later, I went to weekly posts. Occasionally I posted twice a week.

This summer I announced a two-month break when I decided to post every other week.  With this short break the exception, I have not missed a week in a decade. That is a lot of writing!

Why blog?

Not everyone enjoys writing. Not everyone is good at writing. You can get past ...

10 Years of Quilty Blogging from Quilty Folk

Well, it's been 10 years of quilty blogging! Funny how the very first post still holds true. Probably still be trying to talk to myself if it wasn't for all my blogging friends! Here's one of the first quilts that actually made it onto a post. I was super selective back in the early days, terrified of posting too many pics. It's an American Patchwork pattern that seemed pretty intimidating at the time. You know what that means, right? Yep. I was thrilled and feeling proud. Still hangs in my living room today!


I seriously ...

Slow Blogging.... from Val's Quilting Studio

Ugh! I'm such a "slow blogger" these days and can't seem to find my ol' blogging "mojo".
 In reflection, hubs and I are busy enjoying our empty nest, even during a pandemic,
life seems to keep busy...although we really miss eating out once a week.


As a teacher, working from home has been very odd. It's hard to believe sometimes the reality of this Corona Virus Pandemic. Luckily, I have found my hand stitching to be a great comfort during my numerous Zoom Meetings each day as know one can see what I'm doing! LOL ...

YouTube, Blogging, Stitching & Life from Where Art & Life Meet

Things have been busy around here. I had the idea to start a YouTube channel over a year ago. My thought was to go through Sue Spargo’s Creative Stitching book and demonstrate every stitch (but for left-handed stitchers) featured in her book, one stitch a week. I discussed my idea with Anna Bates, my friend… Continue reading YouTube, Blogging, Stitching & Life

Happy New Year 2020 and New Blogging Goals! from Christa Quilts

It’s been a few years since I actually sat down and wrote some business goals. But finally feel like I’m catching up and have actually had time to think and plan again, LOL! One thing has really stuck out at me lately, and that’s how much I enjoy blogging (and sharing pretty quilt pics)!

It’s called Surplus Strips made from leftovers or precut strips.

top nine / one quilt from Charm About You


The year of colour site is an interesting tool that assesses the dominant colours used in your instagram photos. You can play with the sliders to adjust the pixels and brightness etc. and it's cool to see which colours it picks out. I have seen a lot of them pop up on other peoples feeds and they are all so different. Mine was a bit of a surprise, I know I've used brown a lot but I did think they'd be more pink and less blue. I guess it doesn't feel completely 'me' but then as ...

Goodbye 2019! My Year in Review from The Inquiring Quilter

2019 is coming to an end and I thought I’d take a look back at the year and all I accomplished.

Year 3 as an Island Batik Ambassador

2019 was my third year as an Island Batik Ambassador, and man did I have fun! I love the batiks of course, but most of all I love monthly challenges because they take me to new places. The challenges push my creativity and my designs while also increasing my quilting techniques.

Did you miss one of my monthly challenges? Click on an image below to read that post.

Reason #1 from Nestlings By Robin

MUSH BRAIN!


I can't be the only one who suffers 
from 'mush brain'!
You know the feeling when you go to 
bed the night before and visions of your 
planned awesomeness-for-tomorrow dance
in your head; but then, tomorrow morning 
comes and you know there just won't be 
enough coffee to energize that brain.

My work deadline/travel schedule this past
4 months have had me coming and going
with mostly 2-3 day turnarounds at my home.
This means that now that I am home, 
my brain has gone on strike but
the work deadlines aren't done ...

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED from Nestlings By Robin

accepted the challenge again this year, doesn't 
mean I will accomplish it but without trying we 
never know what we can do! So, here we go again:)

If we can do it when we are the busiest

That should be my series of posts this month....
reason #1 not to blog....reason #2 not to blog, etc.
Wonder if I can ...
