In Bed with Elvis from Romany Quilting

Where did this happen, you are probably wondering?  My neurosurgeon had requested an MRI of my spine to check on his handywork.  So I presented myself bright and early for my appointment to Pacific Radiology in Palmerston North.  What music would you like, I was asked?  After thinking about it I decided on Elvis, after all, I fell in love with his wonderful voice when my girlfriend’s brothers used to buy his records way back then in  years gone by.

So there I was, laying on my back, headphones on, cocooned inside the MRI machine for an hour, listening ...

Parallel Lines from Nina Paley

Finally I can share this animated video I made back in October, in collaboration with Italian pop goddess Gala. I of course wanted to release it the minute it was finished, but the music biz doesn’t work that way, and I had to wait. The song is © Gala, but the art is Free Culture, baby!

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

The plan was for the next block of my scrappy quilting adventure series to b posted this week. That’s the problem with projects and plans. They have a way of getting, how shall I say this, halted for a second or two. I was working ....

All American from From the Strawberry Patch...

All American ~ 60" X 60"I didn't quite succeed in getting this patriotic quilt top pieced by Flag Day this year, but almost! I saw this pattern a few months ago online and knew that this was the quilt that I wanted to make as a wallhanging for brick wall out on the new porch, it will hang over the drop-leaf game table that Mr. Goodneedle is building-- the colors are perfect and I believe that the

Composing Not What I Saw Myself doing from Adele Mogavero

Composing music isn’t what I set out to do when I started taking piano lessons. It was the last thing on my mind. In fact, I didn’t think it was something I could even do. That thinking all changed one Sunday afternoon at church. I ....

Going Down a Rabbit Hole of Music from From My Carolina Home

As much as I have enjoyed binge watching some shows lately, I’ve run out of scripted shows that are capturing my interest.  This past week we watched a couple of music documentaries that have been very interesting on Netflix.  The documentary on Quincy Jones was pretty good, and gave an amazing portrait of his 70 year career in music across many different genres.  There is also a great show on Clive Davis, the extraordinary record producer who discovered and nurtured some of the most amazing talent of the 70s and beyond.  The documentary on the Eagles was outstanding, but ...

Back to Napier for Art Deco Festival from Romany Quilting

After staying for a few days in rural Maraekakaho, south of Hastings, the next stop on our ICA rally was to Napier for the Art Deco Weekend.   The Art Deco Trust puts together a very full programme,  and as first time attendees, everything was new to us.  The highlight to us was the vintage car parade, with 300 pre-1946 cars registered.   We spent some time admiring these beauties as they awaited the start of the parade.  How did the passengers clamber up into those dickey seats and get settled while dressed to the nines, I wonder?
