Happy Easter! from The Free Motion Quilting Project

I hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday! I’m looking forward to a day of cooking delicious food, having fun, and eating way too much candy!

Easter egg painted with alcohol inks

I blew out these eggs and had some fun with alcohol inks on Friday night. I want to try this again, but using tape to seal off certain areas and then remove it to reveal other colors underneath. That would be beautiful!

James was in an unusually cuddly mood the other day and sat next to me on the couch. This hardly ever happens anymore, so I really enjoy it when it does ...

What’s Going on around the House

I continue plugging away on the Ms. Bunny doll spoonflower panel. This will be a print you can purchase from spoonflower with instructions and the full pattern to make your own Ms. Bunny doll. Ms Bunny is a character from my children’s novel Mally the Maker.

A Very Merry Christmas! from The Free Motion Quilting Project

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas today (or yesterday, depending on where you live in the world)!

We’ve had a wonderful, relaxing day playing video games, ping pong, and solving (then unsolving) a new set of rubix cubes. I’m so grateful for Josh, James and everyone in my family and all the sweet surprises they tucked under the tree for me.

We’ve just entered my absolute favorite time of the year. This pocket of time from Christmas to New Years feels like an extra bonus and it’s the best time to get a head ...

Do You Still READ Quilting Blogs? from The Free Motion Quilting Project

I’m feeling a bit skeptical today!

I have a simple question for you today: are you still reading quilting blogs?

I have this sneaking suspicion that our behaviors online have changed. Let me give you an example:

Today I wanted to find a sugar cookie recipe that is keto friendly and uses Swerve as the sweetener. Can you imagine searching a Betty Crocker cookbook for that? Never! This type of diet-exclusive recipe is perfect for Pinterest searches though.

I opened Pinterest and scrolled through a mix of cookies and annoying ads and clicked on the prettiest photo. It looked ...

Happy Halloween from a Flower Girl Pirate! from The Free Motion Quilting Project

It’s Halloween, which means I have a terrific excuse to pull out my Flower Girl mask!  James and I dressed up and hit the streets this evening as the scary masked guy from Scream and a Flower Girl… pirate? I was kind of a mash up of several different things at once, but it worked out pretty good!

Leah Day Flower Girl Costume

Unfortunately we’ve had a really bad stomach flu running through our house and Josh came down with it right before we left to trick-or-treat. This is the first year he’s missed out on the fun and we really missed ...
