How God Lifted My Discouragement from Adele Mogavero

It took my breath away and lifted me from discouragement. It was a far cry from how I was feeling earlier in the day. Where did the discouragement come from? Maybe the rainy weather brought on my discouragement. Maybe is was the chore of housecleaning. Where ever it came from

This is (mostly) a rant!!! from Sew Preeti Quilts

Warning - this is a rant. Proceed at your own risk.

I had neither the time nor the desire to write this post. But I had to because I was so seething with anger and disgust. And if not here then where else?

Let's call her Auntie Marilyn. I am so tempted to use her full name, but I am not going to. Because I am better than that.

Let's start at the very beginning. The year was 2015 when Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company shared this tutorial on youtube.  You can buy the pattern Double Square ...

Serenity and Courage from Sew Preeti Quilts

For some time, I wanted to make a trilogy of quilts - Serenity, Courage and Wisdom, inspired by the Serenity Prayer written by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr.  A little research revealed that Niebuhr's prayer originally asked for courage first, and specifically for changing things that must be changed, not things that simply can be changed.


Quilting Serenity


Father, give us courage to change what must be altered, serenity to accept what cannot be helped, and the insight to know the one from the other. 


Of course I sleep with polar bears


Blues and Greens

I also feel that way ...

Ohh, eccentric behavior. What makes you point at someone and say: She’s a little odd or, my neighbor is a bit eccentric? Just because it is odd or weird to you sure don’t make it so.  Look at Noah. Well, maybe it didn’t make sense ....

Pandemic & Creativity in NYC from Where Art & Life Meet

There’s something lovely about all the restaurants who are taking outdoor seating to a whole new level. While indoor dining is prohibited, New York City is allowing restaurants to take over the sidewalks and even spill out into the streets, many are taking advantage of this by decorating huge planters with flowering vines, stringing up… Continue reading Pandemic & Creativity in NYC

How confident are you? from Professional Quilter

When someone asks you how confident you are about something, do you cringe and second-guess or question your abilities? Maybe self-doubt starts to set in. You feel stuck or paralyzed about taking action. You may be even one of those people who end up in a downward spiral to the point of giving up.

I feel confident about a lot of my creative skills. A few Thanksgivings ago, I decided I would make and decorate a cheesecake for dessert with our meal. The impetus came from a friend who made his living in the wedding industry. He had recently retired ...
