20 Years!

Way back in 1999, on January 11th, I took a deep breath and launched my little pattern company. Ten years later, in June of 2009, I launched my web site, and started my blog. Wow, what a ride it’s been! At the 10-year mark, I introduced a Welcome Banner pattern to celebrate; and again, at […]

News From the Ranch, Episode 1694

Hide ‘n’ Seek Tea Towel

Six years ago, I was part of a fall blog hop along with a lot of other designers, and we each presented a block as part of the hop. My block was an appliqué block with a pumpkin and a kitty and a mouse, and I really had a lot of fun designing and making […]

This Week

We’re past Hump Day already, and I don’t feel like I’ve done one single productive thing yet this week. Fortunately, I was at my guild’s spring retreat last weekend at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop’s fabulous retreat center, where I did move a few projects forward with some uninterrupted sewing time. We got to watch the […]

News From the Ranch, Episode 1640

It’s been awhile since I published a ranch update. Lots of folks have been asking for goat news, so I figured I’d better get to writing! Have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter? It just makes everything so much harder. Back in the fall, I started keeping an eye on my goats, thinking they […]
