Fantasy Comments on Quilt blogs

I love reading tweets by fellow quilters around the world. They amuse me, make me sad, make me glad and occasionally challenge me.  This is one of the latter. Someone needs to do a quilt blog version of this stat. “All The Comments on Every Recipe Blog” — Coral (@CoralQuilts) September 5, 2014 Another... Read more »

Where are the Quilters in a post apocalyptic world?

My husband watches multiple shows about the dire future facing we humans after the zombies, aliens, machines or general troublemakers attack and leave us to fend in a sad, sad future. These shows always feature a guy named Governor, Sheriff or head honcho or something leading a hardy group of survivors. The survivors are all... Read more »

Teacher reaction vs Quilter reaction to start of school

School is starting up in waves across the states. I see cute pictures of  kids on their first day. When my girls were starting school there was no Facebook so I just took them for our own photo albums and I love them, all of them. I am pretty calm about the start of school... Read more »

What if there was Quilt Click bait

I am not willing to admit how much time I spend on my computer (way too much) but I have seen a ton of click bait. I used to fall for it, I admit it. I would click and end up on something that wasn’t even remotely interesting. But boy those headlines sure did get... Read more »

Overheard at the Quilt retreat

I have never attended an overnight Quilt retreat. I love the idea of all the sewing but the sleeping, I just have a thing about sleeping with new…mattresses! I love mine. When we got home from Alaska I was ecstatic to be home sweet home and in my own bed. But I have gone to... Read more »

Even more Quilt Meme Favorites

I particularly like this because it's an analog clock. When I teach time in Spanish, analog clocks give the digital generation some problems.
Quilt memes are fun, they just are. I like to make them which you have noticed if you’ve liked my Facebook page. Once I’ve made them and published them there, then what? Should I just let them languish without any attention? Nope! I publish them every so often in a photo gallery right here on... Read more »

12 Phrases I never get tired of hearing

I absolutely love it when someone says or writes this to me. It's like Hip Hip Hooray, no picky criticism or advice. I know it's not perfect, it just is such a kind and accepting response.
Some phrases are music to my ears and make you want to scream in pain, I know, I get it! I wrote a post about phrases I can’t stand and people added all kinds of suggestions in the comments and on my Facebook page. Language is fantastic, isn’t it? I had a grand time every... Read more »

Quilt ecards are fun

Variety is the spice of life.
Addictions are funny things, some just creep up on you and suddenly you realize you’re hooked.rds. Such was the case with Quilt ecards and me. I started making them to have something to post on my page. Then I would think about ones I wanted to make. Yep, I was hooked. Why? Because Quilt ecards... Read more »

What if Quilt Shows were like Rock Concerts

I live in the Chicago area and our fair city just hosted a huge Rock Festival, Lollapalooza. This kind of festival is not something I care to attend, it’s just not my thing. While I was reading the run down of conditions I had to wonder, what if Quilt Shows were like Rock Concerts? How... Read more »

    My passions are quilting and sewing. Add to that French, Spanish, books, swimming, travels, new restaurants, biking and chocolate and you have me. All of these are best shared with family and friends. Except for chocolate, I prefer not to share that.
