Reflection – OBW #79 from If These Threads Could Talk

I don’t know about your fabric stash, but sometimes mine has years to mellow. Some of you may know that I am undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Before chemo started I went to my One Block Wonder Stash to choose fabrics to cut. I thought even if I don’t feel well most of the time, surely if I have my equilateral triangles cut out I should be able to do some sewing.

In 2008 I purchased English Countryside by Sue Beevers in two color ways, green and purple.

I made this One Block Wonder for my ...

“We need to talk.” from Quilt in Piece

Homily based on Matthew 15: 21-28 “We need to talk.” These four words are a call to attention and have the potential to immediately strike fear in the ears of the listener. It is the classic introduction to a break-up conversation, or bad news is going to be delivered. It indicates that something big is happening and a tough conversation is coming. A woman presents with an urgent plea, shouting for Jesus to help her daughter, and what follows is perhaps one of the toughest conversations recorded in our gospels. And it almost does not happen. The response from Jesus ...

Stepping out in faith from Quilt in Piece

Happy Women’s day! Today I share with you my Rector’s sermon from this morning. Reflection During these uncertain times, in a boat rocked by stormy weather, waves crashing into the boat, and strong winds threatening to overturn and sink us, being soaked to the bone in the pouring rain, not one of us are comfortable. We are unsure of what is going to happen next, we are not sure which way to go, or to go anywhere at all. The Rector’s beautiful and powerful message says it all. May you find strength and endurance in God, and ...

Wrestling with God, a reflection from Quilt in Piece

Today I share my Rector’s sermon with you, and a bit of reflection. The sermon today is titled “Wrestling with God” I have spent more sleepless nights wrestling with God, than I care to admit. Agonizing over problems and issues. And with impatience with God taking too long to answer prayers, or not making things happen. In a lot of ways like Jacob, I want to know now, what it is what God wants from me. Most of the time, I am 99% convinced what God wants from me, but then I remember all the obstacles in my way ...

Reflection on the parable of the mustard seed. from Quilt in Piece

Hi everyone,today’s reflection was hosted by my parish, St Francis Toti. You can read it via the link above or here below. Mark 4:30-34 30 He said, “To what shall we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? 31 It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. 32 But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can ...

The Good Seed and the Bad Seed. from Quilt in Piece

Homily based on Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43 The Good Seed and the Bad Seed. Homicide is the killing of a human being. Regicide is the killing of a king. Suicide is the killing of oneself. So why is herbicide not the killing of plants? The dictionary defines it as a weed killer, used to kill vegetation.  Today’s parable is about the temptation to commit herbicide, with one’s own hands. If you have ever farmed or planted a garden, you know that no matter how careful you are in preparing the soil and planting the seeds, weeds will grow ...

Finding myself from Quilt in Piece

Greetings, in the name of Christ! This past week, I was asked to write a short biography on myself…hahaha right! And so I went on an adventure of writing something about myself, not a pleasant adventure I might add. The memories came flooding back and the nostalgia was overwhelming. I starting digging through all my old folders of photos, and news articles, reports and stories I wrote. My Facebook timeline history and old memory sticks to try and remember everything about myself. Who was I back then? The complete opposite of what I am now! Writing this biography, was ...

Protests & Listening in NYC from Where Art & Life Meet

“So in a lot of ways, what has happened over the last several weeks is challenges and structural problems here in the United States have been thrown into high relief. They are the outcomes not just of the immediate moments in time, but they’re the result of a long history of slavery, Jim Crow, redlining,… Continue reading Protests & Listening in NYC

Abiding in faith from Quilt in Piece

Greetings in Christ! We are fast approaching the Day of Pentecost, in just one week, which will end the Season of Eastertide. And I find myself reflecting upon the texts from our readings from Ascension day, including tomorrow’s readings. For many, the lockdown has been a trying time for many reasons, and there is no end in sight. People are hungry, cold, sick, dying, lonely, depressed, losing jobs, struggling financially and this all includes the church communities. The pastors are working harder than ever, to keep everything and everyone together and a sinking ship afloat. In last weeks reflections ...

Adapting in a time of crisis from Quilt in Piece

A Reflection on Acts 2:42-47 and the modern Church during Covid-19 18 May 2020 This week, I was reflecting on the Church (all churches – for my studies); the functions of the Church as it was in the Early Church as seen in Acts compared to the functions of the Modern Church, as we are living it now (or least as we experienced it before the Covid19 pandemic and during the lockdown), and I started wondering, where has our passion gone. When did we stop being passionate followers of Jesus and started becoming a passerby to God’s Church? Where ...

top nine / one quilt from Charm About You


The year of colour site is an interesting tool that assesses the dominant colours used in your instagram photos. You can play with the sliders to adjust the pixels and brightness etc. and it's cool to see which colours it picks out. I have seen a lot of them pop up on other peoples feeds and they are all so different. Mine was a bit of a surprise, I know I've used brown a lot but I did think they'd be more pink and less blue. I guess it doesn't feel completely 'me' but then as ...
