I have decided on a wall quilt I will be making for the fair this year. It will be a sampler using feed sacks from my great-grandparents farm house. In this case, pictures truly are worth a thousand words. Enjoy!

There are so many changes taking place in my life right now. One of which is moving. My family and I are working together on the new home. It is time consuming and emotionally difficult. The home is the one my dad grew up in. It is Granny's house. It is hard taking a h...

Oh boy! Spring sure came in like a lion!  The first day I got sick. Yuck. Not quite sure if it was the flu or strep throat. Either way, I was down for about two weeks. 

I am so excited. On Ringo Lake is in the process of being put together as I write. It seems like...

In the midst of On Ringo Lake, I have been working on the Pleiades Quilt challenge. Both of these projects have been out of my comfort zone, as they have been created by someone else. Majority of my quilts have been self designed. To me, designing is half the fun!
