This and That on a Wednesday.. from Humble Quilts

Happy Day quilt friends!

My Fiberchats interview from Wendy's Quilts and More

Irina Shaar from Fiberchats asked me if she could interview me for her Fiberchats channel on YouTube.  I said "Yes", and here's the result.  

Irina mainly interviews knitting designers and people who hand dye knitting wool, but she's branching out and interviewing other fiber artists too now. 

I hope you enjoy my interview!

Humble Quilts Class or Workshop? from Humble Quilts

Since I'm training for a half marathon I've had lots of time to let my mind wonder about Humble Quilts and what I want 2022 to look like. 
I want to ask you all what you think about a short class once a month. We could do a small quilt project, learn about antique quilts or reproduction fabric. I think the possibilities are endless.  Please watch the short video and let me know what you think!

Leave me a comment or send me an email at for any ideas!

Thank you so much!

Going Down the Organizing Rabbit Hole from Where Art & Life Meet

There are diversions and then there are DIVERSIONS!  Organizing can be one of those.  I finished the BIG piece I’ve been working on and instead of leaping into something new, I got sidetracked with organizing.  Organizing my work space, it’s pretty small so it takes some doing to spend more than a few hours on […]

Showing up For Work from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m not feeling great.  I should probably just end this post right here.  But, no, I’ll soldier on. Not because this post is important, it’s not, but because it represents all the things on my to do list and so much that is just life. No one needs to hear my laundry list of “woes”, […]

Pain, Grief and Showing up Anyway from Where Art & Life Meet

So here’s the thing…  I feel a whole lot better when I show up even when I feel awful, even when I feel things are rough and I’m tired, even when I don’t want to.  I’ve also learned that showing up anyway is the single best remedy for not continuing to feel that way. Except […]

Controlling What You Can from Where Art & Life Meet

Today’s morning reading excerpt: “While you don’t control external events, you retain the ability to decide how you respond to those events. You control what every external event means to you personally.” The Daily Stoic When we returned from Africa, I had a livestream scheduled for the next day and a Zoom meeting that couldn’t […]

The Day to Day Trajectory of a Tourist on Safari from Where Art & Life Meet

First day seeing an animal (any animal): Me: What is that?  It looks like a boar.  Runs to find someone who can accurately identify said boar.  Told it’s a warthog.   Second time seeing boar-like creature: Me: Oh look! It’s a warthog. Confidently lists several features of the warthog; it’s preferred vegetation, which animals prey upon it, etc. First day […]

This is Grief, I’m Told from Where Art & Life Meet

There are moments that feel impossible and others that fly by unnoticed. Mostly I’m exhausted almost constantly, as though a perpetual scrim has enveloped me, making everything feel heavier, cloudier, more difficult to sort through. It’s not terrible, just different. This is grief, I’m told. This morning is one of those heavier moments. Maybe it’s […]
