Stumbling Along & Other Musings… from Where Art & Life Meet

Every morning my husband and I read something aloud, and then we take turns talking about what we’ve just read. Today’s reading began with this: “There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will treat others with respect, kindness, and generosity.” Nathaniel Branden I love our morning readings… Continue reading Stumbling Along & Other Musings…

Staying Home & Creating from Where Art & Life Meet

For seven days I did not step foot outside our loft. Since the pandemic became known as such, I have ventured out only occasionally. So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that I tested negative to having COVID19 antibodies, and yet, weirdly I was. And perhaps even odder, I felt both relieved and disappointed simultaneously.… Continue reading Staying Home & Creating

Working Through Creative Blocks from Where Art & Life Meet

The day before yesterday I came up with this wild looking circle as one of the circles I’m doing, loosely following Sue Spargo’s Toned-Down Circle Sampler 90-day project that she is doing on Instagram.

Courage is not the Absence of Fear… from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m not sleeping much these days. The up-side is I’m getting a ton of stuff done. Also, photographs of empty New York City streets, though eerie, have a certain grace to them. I only venture out every few days, but when I do, I’m struck by the same things: the exquisite beauty of New York… Continue reading Courage is not the Absence of Fear…

New York City During the Pandemic from Where Art & Life Meet

New York City has now earned the dubious distinction of being the epicenter of the pandemic. I know 6 people whose doctor’s believe they are sick with COVID19, though without the ability to test anyone unless they are incapable of breathing on their own, it’s impossible to verify, and another handful of people who are… Continue reading New York City During the Pandemic

Staying Safe from From the Strawberry Patch...

For the most part, (as far as I was concerned) the screened-in porch project was finished, the ceiling and light fixtures were installed, the screen units were in place and we found furniture to make sitting out there comfortable and enjoyable. It was not, however, ready to pass inspection; not yet.  We had yet to install safety railings on the inside of the two elevated window walls. Normally

Name Your Goliath: My Giant Is Named JINGLE, So I'm Quilting It Anyway from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Oh my gosh, you guys -- I'm so glad I went to church last Sunday!  The sermon at Christ Lutheran was PERFECT for helping me get over my fear of "messing up" my Jingle quilt by quilting it poorly!  


If you have ever felt intimidated by something (sewing related or otherwise) that seems too big, too complicated, or too difficult for you, then today's post is for you.



Center Appliqué Medallion for my Big, Scary Jingle Quilt, Erin Russek's Pattern Available here
The text for the sermon was I Samuel 17, the story of the young shepherd boy ...
