Welcome to my blog. Fabric has always been a passion of mine! I love looking, touching, feeling, smelling and of course creating with fabric. I was a professional seamstress for 13 years and now sew for relaxation and the pure joy of seeing a finished creation. It is my hope to share my triumphs and temptations with you. Love to all.

Washington Weather!

Oh my oh my! What a horrible spring and summer we have had! Not one day over 75 degrees, lots of rain, and my strawberry plants don't know what a strawberry is at all.

Thank God for quilt shows!!!

The Busy Bee Quilter's Quilt show in July was fantastic...
So much talent. So much diversity. So hard to vote on my favorite quilts.

So much more to see with the upcoming 2011 Pacific West Quilt Show in Tacoma, WA August 26-28, 2011 ... I can't wait to go. It's a judged and juried show...lots of talent displayed and so many vendors. (A quilter just can't have too much fabric you know!)

So while I wait for the next show- I get a little vacation! At home kind of vacation. I plan to create a new pattern, do some piecing, and finish atleast one of the few tops I have ready for quilting. Maybe even get one done if the weather holds out for rain!

And I'll spend some time with the grandkids - go to the zoo, shop for school stuff (already?) and eat junk food.

Aren't they cute? I think they are adorable - Jacoby, Annika, Elexia and Aaliyah!

Aahh...summer. Rain or shine...I'll take it. And visit some great places while I'm at it. Next stop -
