Creativity starts with playing like a kid from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 Happy Canada Day!! 

I had the perfect shirt for today, but I've searched everywhere, and I can't find it!! It was orange (in support of our Indigenous peoples and it had CANADA on the front of it with a maple leaf. Now, what the heck could I have done with that shirt? Sigh................


I've had a project on my to-do list (NOT The Task Master who is wicked!) for a while. I need it to be done TODAY, as well as another project. Well, today is the day, and I'm making great progress on both. They ...

It's all about CREATIVITY from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 It's the end of the week! How did that happen? There was so much going on that I just went from one thing to another, and well, here it is - FRIDAY!!

OK - so I didn't get as much done as I wanted yesterday, but I did have fun, and that's what life is all about. I watched one of the presentations for Quilt Canada (in french), and it was great. Amazing how much I still remember after all these years. And it's not even my first language. When I was listening to the French radio station ...

Fusible Webbing Tidbits from Adele Mogavero

I had mentioned in my video that I was having issues with my sewing machine. I’ve since learned it was not the sewing machine but the fusible webbing. Some fusible webbing products tends to gum up the needle, which can make the machine skip stitches. ....

Picking Up The Pieces from Adele Mogavero

Picking up the pieces of my March UFO reminded me of life. As a season ends, a new one begins. The transition isn’t always simple, but you can’t get from here to there without the process. With a quilt, it’s figuring out where you at, ....

Mystic Symbolic: the developening from Nina Paley

On January 27 I awoke with an idea for a mystic symbolic art generator. I immediately sketched copious notes and put out word I was looking for a coder to collaborate with. By some miracle, Atul Varma responded within an hour, which makes me believe this project really wants to exist.

My plans are vast and sprawling, so we’re starting simple. And by simple we mean bonkers:

Atul and I are on the same page regarding Free Software and Free Culture, so we’re both happy to share as we go along. You can generate your own strange images ...

Get That Stuff Done… from Adele Mogavero

Why not make 2021 a year to get that stuff done? Those UFOs. Pesky projects started, but for one reason or another, they ended up in some bin. Forgotten. Unfinished. Wasting Space. Don’t you think it’s time to get them out of the way? Out ....

Creativity Abounds from From the Strawberry Patch...

We spent Christmas Eve day with our daughter and her family in the Capital City. Lucy Ann was eager to take me upstairs to their finished, converted attic space which has become her (and her brother's) play room. They do allow their father a secluded corner of the space for his work-from-home office.
