in a previous post, i discussed my recent trend of starting quilt projects but never finishing them. as i was cruising along on the most recent quilt, i got really excited about it, and decided it was high time to break that streak and saw it through to the very end. it all started when […]
march mayhem (madness was taken).
turns out. march was busy. or at least that’s what my photographic evidence of march is telling me. aside from the items i will detail in this post, there was a cake, a big school project, a home improvement project, and a weekend bucket list getaway. now here’s the other stuff that happened. (this is […]
february and all of it’s non essential happenings.
february came and went without too much fanfare requiring a separate post. i had a cake that almost ended me. and an epic hike with a good girl. and i made a teddy bear. and, as you’ll see in this post, there really wasn’t much else going on in february at all. anna hasn’t really […]
old dog. new tricks. or whatever.
a long long long time ago, i got my start in sewing by making little felt stuffed animals. they were mostly flat at first, and then i branched out to some three dimensional characters. but, then i began quilting and have sort of lingered in the two dimensional space ever since. the quilt/fabric/sewing shop at […]
ok. so here’s the stuff that happened in january, excluding spontaneous trips to western new york to watch the bills playoff game vs. the dolphins, isaac’s 16th birthday festivities, and the one cake i made. spoiler alert. the rest is sort of boring. but here goes. lets begin with some happenings while i was away […]

recent paper piecing adventures.
after making several big quilts in a row (halloween economy block, scrappy christmas tree, gnomes, amh flying geese, and stay gold bear paw), i needed a little break. it was time to work on something smaller, more intricate, cheaper, etc, so i started the search for a new paper piecing pattern. lo and behold, i […]
february. the 24th month of covid.
whelp. february is a wrap. concluding the 24th month of covid. or. two years if we are counting in years, which if you had told me we would have in march 2020, i might have had a nervous breakdown. anyways. enough about that. you know about that. here’s the happenings around these parts, in no […]
stay gold, bear paw quilt, stay gold.
i very rarely purchase entire fat quarter bundles of a fabric collection, but when photos of ruby star society’s new “stay gold” collection by melody miller starting popping up on my radar, i knew i had to have it all. within minutes, i had found an online shop with fat quarter bundles in stock, and […]
the first and last flying geese quilt i will make. (epic amh #4).
with the completion of my cathedral windows pillow, i had some anna maria horner themed mojo going, so i quickly moved into the making of my next addition to my epic amh quilt collection. i decided on a quilt made up of groups of four flying geese blocks (so i could use a handy no-waste […]
