September 350 Blocks Report

In September, I challenged myself to run the longarm every single day. I’m trying to keep from getting any further behind on customer quilts, and there will invariably be a quilt or two that always takes me way longer to quilt than I think it will. And if I can quilt for a few hours […]

Are You Bored Yet?

100 Days!

Yes, it’s already that time again! That magical day when there are only 100 days left in the year! And fall has officially begun. Time for me to once again make my list of “100 Things To Do In The Next 100 Days”. I find that I’m usually too completely pie-in-the-sky with my lists, so […]

September Studio Organizing Challenge

Well, August was nothing if not a massive failed attempt at any organizing. I simply had too many deadlines last month. Still up against some deadlines for this month. So I guess I need to pick something easier, huh? My bookcase doesn’t look one iota different. I still haven’t adjusted the shelves or dealt with […]

August 350 Blocks Report

Well, that went fast! Do I say that every month? Schools are back in session — it seemed weird to see the school bus go past the house after 5 months of not seeing it. Fall is getting closer. We’ve been having gorgeous weather. We are heading into my two favorite months of the year. […]

Arrow Rock Sampler: Month 4

I’m seriously having a really hard time keeping track of what day it is. I guess it doesn’t matter, since mine are all pretty much alike . . . until it comes to a deadline . . . and I’ve thrown off my entire August schedule because I got stuck back in the first week […]
