Marriage & An Anniversary from Where Art & Life Meet

Today is my 20th wedding anniversary to this guy. To say that I feel lucky doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. We met at a Christmas party on Christmas Day in 1998. Neither of us were expecting to meet the person that would completely change our lives, and yet, that’s exactly what happened. I… Continue reading Marriage & An Anniversary

Are You Working Against Yourself? from Adele Mogavero

You start working against yourself if your thinking pattern starts with I hate this or that… Let me show you what I’m talking about. When I opened my shop in 2012, it was merely a diversion of sorts, something to do for fun.     It ....

The Pandemic & the Things That Unite Us from Where Art & Life Meet

I don’t know about you but the interminability, the endlessness of this pandemic hits me in waves. For the most part I am able to brush it off, keep going, keep stitching, keep designing, but there are other times when it all just feels like a massive punch to the gut. When is this ever… Continue reading The Pandemic & the Things That Unite Us

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…

God’s Gift Of Joy and The Sawtooth block from Adele Mogavero

I looked out the window to see a gift of joy. Let me explain. You know, perhaps, that pink has become a sign of comfort and love from God to me. It all started with beautiful sunrises and sunsets early in the year. I began ....

Riley Park – My Very Favourite Place from Kim Hanson Quilts

There’s no place in Calgary like Riley Park. It’s where I used to play as a kid. It’s where I grew from a child, to a teenager. Although the park is a little different now than it used to be, it’s still filled with memories at every turn.

Spring and summer bring the park to life; green grass, a playground full of noisy children and 50+ year old trees show us the best part of nature.

My granddaughter and I went to the park last week. We ended up playing a camera game she came up ...

Dizzy With Laughter from Adele Mogavero

Do you remember when you were a kid, spinning around in circles until you were so dizzy you fell down? And giggled and laughed when you tried to walk. Throwing all your cares aside (if indeed you had any) giving into the joy of life ....

The INSTANT QUILT from Nestlings By Robin

Disclaimer: May have a "Soapbox" feel as they are MY opinions:)

Instant Pots are all the rage and I feel like 
quilters expect the same thing from quilting.

I totally understand time restraints, 
ailing health issues that don't allow
someone to do everything they once did 
and I sympathize with those frustrations but.....

I do get confused when they say they are "Passionate" about quilting but want to rush through every stage by getting all the fabrics pre cut or pre laser cut/fused, assemble the top and then send it out to be quilted.  Where was the joy ...

Bible Study News for 2018 from Renewing Mrs. Sew & Sew

Hey there friends,
Thanks for stopping by to read my blog.

Well it has been a month sense I have written on my blog and a little bit longer sense we finished our bible study "A Wife's Secret to Happiness".

I have been praying about what the Lord would have me do in the the next couple of months. I have also been praying for you as well. As you recall from my last video I said, it my not be me who God would have lead our next study. 

Which brings me to the reason of writing this ...

Free Motion Quilting - What I have learnt from Quilting Along the Grain

As you know I love patchwork. I have made clothes and bags, but patchwork is my passion!
It all started back in 1996 when I spotted a patchwork quilt in a magazine and immediately bought a small cheep sewing machine. That fist king size quilt has pride of place in my bedroom and is still used to build dens!

Faded and worn, but a den building staple!
For  person who avoided sewing lessons at school because they were for girls that is quite an achievement!
When I started patchwork I was  determined hand quilter. I couldn't seem to get ...
