Photo Friday – Story

This week’s Photo Challenge assignment was to take a photo that tells a story.  I didn’t do my homework and submitted nothing. Instead, I will share my favorite storytelling photo from past years. This is my husband at the top of Mont Ventoux, a.k.a “The Beast of Provence” in 2004.  (I rode up in the […]

TBT – Quilter’s Newsletter

Last week I learned that after 47 years, Quilter’s Newsletter will cease publication.  I am so filled with sadness by this news for many reasons. IMHO, Quilter’s Newsletter is very different from the other quilting magazines available because, though it has patterns in it, it includes articles about quilting history, quilt artists, the quilt industry […]

Photo Friday – Footwear

Yes, “Footwear” was the photo challenge for this week.  Since we were also supposed to do something with perspective, I composed this big/ medium/ small photo of my family’s footwear: (I know, you really didn’t need to see a picture of my shoes.)

Design Wall Tuesday – #BirdZeed and #APQResolution

Each month, she posts a word to spur our creative juices and we share what we create.  July’s word is “Circle.” When she posted the word, this UFO was hanging […]

#APQSResolution – June

I know, it’s July.  But, I just put the finishing touches on my UFO for June for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge.  This piece was a machine quilting sample from years ago that just needed a binding.  It got one and now I can donate it to my guild for its mini-quilt raffle […]

Photo Friday – Colosseum

I guess this photo is an odd choice this week.  The Photo Challenge assignment was “celebration,” but I didn’t get it done. I was too busy celebrating being home from England and making a red, white and blue cake for the July 4th picnic. (You know that saying about if you’re a hammer, everything looks […]
