A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Quilt Icing


I was doing the happy dance!…after a very long week of deadline-knitting
Textured Vest
Just like NEW…Reconditioned yarn via wetting method described in previous post
and juggling around kids’ activities.
District Solo & Ensemble
It’s first Friday Art Walk at QuiltWorks.
Party Feast
Kristin, our friend Erin, and I had our girl’s night out on the town. We were prepared to eat, drink, shop and be pampered…What a blast!

One of the highlights of the evening was meeting some talented quilters of Journeys Art Quilt Group and Phyllis Dickenson, a local quilting celebrity/former featured quilter of the Sister’s Quilt Show.
