With A Dash Of Hope from Adele Mogavero

With a dash of hope, I finished my Peach Cobbler block and wondered how it got its name. Was the designer making a peach cobbler at the time? Did they make all the original peach cobbler blocks with peachy colored fabrics? I see hope, not ....

Monday's Strength: Psalms 14. Scrappy Love. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

 Monday's Strength:  Psalms 14

In Psalm 14, much focus is on the situation of the people.  I decided to focus on God's actions instead.  It appears that David feels surrounded by an evil, sin-filled environment.  However, I believe God remains hopeful as He is seeking those who understand Him, who seek Him.  
Are you feeling overwhelmed with dread?  It's quite understandable if you are.  As we face the normal challenges of everyday living, new layers of complications are added:  a pandemic, politics and social issues.  The pandemic alone complicates every day tasks!  Feeling dread is quite normal ...

Sh*t My Mother Sends Me and So Much More from Where Art & Life Meet

The image above has nothing to do with anything that I’m writing about today. I need you to know that right off the bat. But I love the photograph as it features two things that bring me joy, the ocean and flowers. We begin with a little something to make you smile, or if you’re… Continue reading Sh*t My Mother Sends Me and So Much More

16 years! Home, Maine, HOME! from Art and Quilting in Camden

When I arrived in Maine 16 years ago today, to move into our house in Camden (we moved from there to neighboring hope in 2011), I did not know that after 46 years of wandering the globe and living on four continents, I had finally found what I always wanted: HOME!

After the storm, just a couple of days ago, from our front porch

Maine has become my muse and my soul’s home. Within two years, I made this quilt which flowed out of me effortlessly. In such a short time, I had become Maine’s and Maine had ...

Binding and Baking from From the Strawberry Patch...

"Sweet Sixteen" is off the rails, binding has been applied and the hand finishing has begun. I'm quilting up a few table runners right now, one day has a way of sliding into the next. The quilts are piling up. Mr. Goodneedle asked me last evening who this quilt was for. I have no designation in mind, I just keep at it, one quilt after another; and sew it goes. One would think that these

Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Sunday Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer


Saturday's Song
Does it feel like your're facing another heartbreak day?
















Here's the lyrics if you'd like to reflect more on them.
Keep moving on my Dear Reader.  
Let me be honest.  
This. Quaratnine. Is. Tough. 
I'm struggling just like you are.
  
I have days that I all I can do is sleep. 
I bet you have, too.
I have days that I cry.
I bet you have, too.
I have lonely days.
I bet you have, too.
I have days that I am close to losing hope.
I bet you have, too.
My family ...

HOPE from Seaside Stitches

Here's a small quilt I made this week that I absolutely love. The pattern is one block of the Tattoo Quilt by Berene Campbell at Happy Sew Lucky. You can purchase patterns for the whole quilt or individual blocks in her Etsy shop.


I immediately fell in love with this block because the Rhode Island state motto is Hope. And I love tattoo art. And barn swallows are cool.

I downloaded the pattern and started piecing on Tuesday. I thought a scrappy green background would be fun. It. Was. Not. The completed block went in the trash!

Restarted on ...

Hope.I Like. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Hope

This is the geranium that my son-in-law got me for Mother's Day several years ago.  I've taken good care of it, but despite my efforts, this last winter, it looked like I had lost it to a freeze.  I kept it in the shade by the pond and watered it faithfully even though it just looked like a pot of dirt.  And look what happened!"
With just a bit of hope, TLC and perseverance, we can be amazed by God's works!

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

Our secret conversation from Quilting with Kimberly

Mom and me, shortly before she passed away in 2016.

My Mom and I share a little secret. We have little “meetings of the minds” where we share heart-to-heart communication on a regular basis. Considering she passed away more than four years ago, you might think I’m a bit quirky to make such a statement. But she and I communicate through our secret, shared language of needlework. Even now, all these years since she left this earth, we send each other nudges of love.

I’m a quilter. Mom was a cross-stitcher. And she was positively brilliant at cross-stitch ...

How Long Lord? From Despair to Hope from Adele Mogavero

There are days when writing is frustrating. I start wondering if I’m on the right path. And start asking How long will it be before I know for sure? So when I read Psalm 13 this morning, It spoke to me. The Psalmist (David) begins ....

All Christmassed out! from Beyond the quilt!

Even here in Kuala Lumpur, Christmas is all about the glitz, the bling, the ring of the tills, overeating, drinking, spending lots of money etc. The malls are are all lit up and the same Christmas music is pumping out as they compete for the best Christmas decorations ever. Everybody seems to want photos on the "red thrones" adorned with lots of lights etc. be you Christian, Hindi, Muslim it's all about the festivities and not too much about the REAL story behind it all. But does this matter?

On Christmas Day Joshua woke us up excited to get ...
