The Wisdom I’ve Gained From Hand Stitching from Where Art & Life Meet

In 2015 or was it 2016(?) things were in flux. I was re-evaluating what I was doing, where I was headed, what I wanted…  There were a number of things going on that led to this, but it was one of those moments that didn’t seem particularly extraordinary or even interesting, but in hindsight I […]

Beginnings, Breaking Free, & Sexual Abuse Awareness from Nestlings By Robin

BREAKING FREE!
Years ago I was part of an 
art group that did a challenge
where we were given a 
monthly prompt from which
to write a Haiku.
I really enjoyed the Haiku
writing and the creativity it brought.
Once our Haiku was written, we 
were to create a small art piece
that represented our Haiku.

When "beginnings" was our 
prompt, I found myself thinking

 Happy Canada Day!! 

I had the perfect shirt for today, but I've searched everywhere, and I can't find it!! It was orange (in support of our Indigenous peoples and it had CANADA on the front of it with a maple leaf. Now, what the heck could I have done with that shirt? Sigh................

It’s all about Self-Control from Adele Mogavero

It's all about CREATIVITY from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

OK - so I didn't get as much done as I wanted yesterday, but I did have fun, and that's what life is all about. I watched one of the presentations for Quilt Canada (in french), and it was great. Amazing how much I still remember after all these years. And it's not even my first language. When I was listening to the French radio station ...
