A New Design, A Stroll & Mischief from Where Art & Life Meet

Let’s kick things off with a new design, shall we?! What? Didn’t she just unveil a new design a couple of weeks ago, you might ask. Yes. Yes, I did. I’ve been very busy! This last one is a companion piece to the Glasses Case. It’s a scissor case! Which, if you’re like me, you… Continue reading A New Design, A Stroll & Mischief

The Importance of a To Do List from Where Art & Life Meet

Another video, thanks to my mother, which requires no introduction. Just watch. In other news, I slept in this morning. I know, probably not the groundbreaking information you were hoping for, but there you have it. I woke up as usual at 5:30am, looked at the clock, thought about all the things I need to… Continue reading The Importance of a To Do List

Cross-Stitch Reveals from Road Home Quilting


I got carried away writing the colonial cross stitch sampler. So now I am charting the entire

Barn Block Alphabet.

I can't resist! It is so fun- I hope you like them too.

These are worked in 40 rows, suitable for a 4" frame, coaster or sachet door hanger. If you use a smaller Aida, you can set them in rows for a cross-stitch sampler quilt :)

And, I'm matching the DMC thread to the original Barn Block Alphabet colors, so your cross-stitch will match your Society6 Barn Blocks and Spoonflower fabrics.

RHQ cross-stitch charts are available as PDF ...

  Shop all of our recommended sewing books, <-------- link by the orange coffee badge in the left sidebar.

I learned that historic samplers combined lots of embroidery styles. Whereas today, we focus on one at a time.  I learned that hardanger is way cool, and a precursor to modern samplers. Sampler books of hardanger and lace were made as catalogs of a seamstress' talents for hire. It was the Colonial Era that turned samplers into lesson books for school ...

Memories of my Father & Designing from Where Art & Life Meet

My father was born and raised in Paris. And though he was Swiss, his first language was French. When he moved to the United States, he brought with him his preference for all things Swiss, he claimed the products produced there were far superior, and his love of the French language. So he would have… Continue reading Memories of my Father & Designing

Beyond Beer Mats from Road Home Quilting

Remember when we used to make collections on Etsy, what was that called?
Oh yeah, Treasury!
Trying to finish my consignment cat pattern has sent me to Etsy for birthday shopping; because I won't have time to make gifts for the 3 upcoming birthdays in my family, not to mention Mother's Day and Graduation, Teacher Appreciation Week......arg!

Ultimate Ergonomic Hook from Road Home Quilting

Speaking of crochet....

Check out the ergonomic hook I found on Etsy!

You get to choose the size and brand of hook, plus the color of millefiori clay handle or stitch marker you wish. Completely custom, and it doesn't take very long.

I chose brown, not pictured in this sample:
These really work. No more carpel tunnel issues, with this big handle I can crochet all evening. 
Best of all,  I get a functional art piece to inspire my own creativity.
