Life, Balance and Road Maps from Where Art & Life Meet

It all comes down to what you’re willing to say out loud. Which, one could argue, if you’re asking yourself this question it’s probably best left unsaid. You know? However, never one to stay quiet, I did just post a video regarding The Ice Cream Situation. You can view it below. So there’s that. Do […]

Thoughts on Feeling Blue & Radical Self Care from Where Art & Life Meet

So I shot a video yesterday because I was feeling a little down and wanted to try and jolt myself out of it. I also went to the gym, rode a bike for a half an hour and then decided it would be a great idea to sprint on the tread mill for a few […]

Machine Quilting Pillow Talk

Boy of boy, there are so many decisions to make to machine quilt our projects. It can be daunting.

  • What machine quilting design do I use?
  • How do I stitch the design in a pleasing way?
  • What  thread color and a thread weight will I use?
  • Should the quilting be dense or light?

Let’s Make Some Decisions

We can take machine quilting and break it into manageable steps. When we concentrate on different parts of the machine quilting process it gives of freedom. With freedom comes courage. Courage to experiment and learn.

The Decision Has Been Made.... from Appalachian Quilts

 You have probably noticed I am posting fewer blog posts.  It's gardening season!  :)  When it's gardening season, the only quilting I am doing is usually for customers.  (I do have a sewing project to do that I will post pics of, but it's not your usual project....)

Keeping up with all the social media platforms is time-consuming.  So, I have decided the blog will be for quilting posts mostly.  Gardening posts will be posted on our YouTube channel.  Being able to watch a video is so much more informative for the gardening than just the pics.  You ...

Our Trip & a Travelogue from Where Art & Life Meet

After a bumpy beginning we are now in full travel mode as in we-have-to-cram-as-much-as-we-can-into-each-day-or-we-might-miss-something. This is how R and I travel. We are the same in this way and as a result we travel really well together. Even when things go awry, and they almost always do, we still keep going, joyfully, yet determined. We […]

Before and After from Appalachian Quilts

Hubs asked me what I wanted for our anniversary.  I'm not a 'present' kind of gal.  I know we are in the middle of the remodel and I hate to ask him to do anything, but.....

I enjoy our back patio.  There is a huge tree for shade.  I have my porch swing out there.  We have all kinds of furniture out there, and I love having my morning coffee, listening to the birds and having my devotions....all out there.  There is an area I just stare at.  I can't stop thinking about what a mess it ...

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. Today we read about relationships using thread as a metaphor, which was kind of perfect for someone like me. This quote was particularly appealing for obvious reasons. A […]

A New Pat Pauly Workshop! from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m sitting here in my workout clothing sans sneakers typing this as I didn’t dare put on my regular work “uniform” for fear I would never honor my Spin Class reservation that begins at 11am. And while we’re on the topic, I just have to say, workout bras are truly a form of torture. You… Continue reading A New Pat Pauly Workshop!

MRI’s & Inspiration for Stitching from Where Art & Life Meet

Yesterday I had to have an MRI because I’ve been getting headaches that often wake me in the middle of the night. I was quite sure I was fine, but it’s a precaution and being an adult and all, it seemed the responsible thing to do. So off I went feeling I’d prepared myself adequately.… Continue reading MRI’s & Inspiration for Stitching

FlossTube No.9 - Show Notes! from Bee In My Bonnet

 


Hello!
I have something fun and 
what I hope will be helpful 
for you that I will be posting
 monthly here on my blog.

As you know I have a new 
YouTube Channel 
and each month I film 
a new episode of FlossTube.

Within each of those episodes
 I show my cross stitching 
that I have been doing that
 month and tell all about it.

I have a lot of color changes 
that I do so that my stitches
 match my decor style and many of you
 have been asking if I would 
share those color conversions.

So each month ...
