February 350 Blocks Report

Well, as I said yesterday, I have sewed my little heart out this month. Short month, but I fit as much into it as I possibly could. We had a severe cold snap, and I found that if I kept working, kept moving, and stayed busy, I stayed warmer, and it kept my mind off […]

My bestie, Victoria, says “Never say ‘Never say never’, or that’s the thing you will end up doing!” And turns out, it is so true. I used to say I never wanted to make a Log Cabin quilt, but I’ve made several, and am working on one right now! I also said I never wanted […]

My Organizing Journey

My Organizing Journey

Organizing just comes naturally to some people — like my grandmother, who passed the gene on to my sister, while skipping over my mother and me. My sister is more like our grandmother, and I’m more like our mother. I’m super organized about some things, but other things just escape me. I’d love to be […]
