Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? There's No Place Like Home.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!!  I've had a non-sewing week, but I've still got plenty to share, and I hope you do too - so let's get started!


As you may remember from last week's posts, my husband and I took our oldest granddaughter Lilli to New York City for a few days this week in early celebration of her 14th birthday!  We've been planning this for months, and Lilli had quite an agenda sketched out for ...

Marriage, Threads & Ice Dyeing from Where Art & Life Meet

I’ve mentioned this before; my husband and I start the morning off with a reading of some kind and then discuss whatever it is we’ve just read.

Chaos in New York City from Where Art & Life Meet

New York City prides itself in being on the forefront of whatever is going on. Right now that means being in the middle of the collective outrage and heartbreak of much of the country.

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

Inspiration is Everywhere from Where Art & Life Meet

A number of people expressed interest in seeing the pieces I use to illustrate a particular stitch I’m demonstrating during my YouTube videos. As I’m showing how to do a stitch, the camera is focused on my stitching, and doesn’t pull back enough to see more than a few inches of the piece I’m working… Continue reading Inspiration is Everywhere

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

Teaching at Gotham Quilts! from Where Art & Life Meet

A month ago I taught a 2-hour stitching workshop exploring shapes and stitches at my quilt guild. It was a huge success, and lots of fun! I prepared squares of wool and precut circles in different sizes. More than 20 people attended and each person got to pick a wool square and some circles, which… Continue reading Teaching at Gotham Quilts!
