Long Memory

Long Memory

I’m not sure where to start with this one, as there is a lot of backstory to how this came into being. Quite a bit of it’s drama and the rest is me figuring out a creative way to use it all. The original design ideas started almost 10 years ago. I started...

Original Design by Paula

I have a friend; her name is Paula Morrey. Paula designs a lot of her own projects. Most of what I’ve seen is based in pop culture. While her patterns seem simplistic with their delightful 8-bit design, there are varying levels of complexity with her execution...

Ask me a question

Do you post everything you make? In a word, no. There are several reasons why I don’t. Mostly, it’s because I either didn’t get photos or I didn’t get permission to post photos. There are a few things I’ve made that I won’t post...

30 Quilt Tops in 30 Days Challenge

One quilt top a day for one month (30 Quilt Tops in 30 Days). Specific size and specific ‘theme’ are required. I don’t/won’t have to finish out the quilt. No batting, backing, binding, or quilting. Strictly quilt tops. Fabrics and patterns...

Christmas time production spree

Pre-Christmas was especially busy for me this year. Not only did I make most of my gifts, I had to have them all done well before December 23rd. There were a couple that had an early-November deadline as well. The early November deadline was for a gift exchange for...

I was asked if I’d consider making a nose warmer for a friend. They’d sent me an image they’d found somewhere; it was obvious I wouldn’t be able to get my fingers on a copy of the pattern. Truth be told, they had asked me last year if I’d...

Chicken Potholders

A friend of mine sent me a link to a crocheted chicken potholders pattern. The link is here. It’s a video, a little over 21 and a half minutes long. As far as I know, there’s no written pattern. I watched the video and wrote out my own pattern. As this is...

Pendant Kit

Most people who know me, know that I have a strong dislike for doing handsewing. It’s not that I can’t do it; it’s more that handsewing makes me fairly cranky. Because handsewing makes me irritable, I can appreciate those who have the mindset and...

Halloween Garb

I was asked if I’d consider making a quasi-period outfit for an online friend of mine. She has a wedding she’s attending and the wedding couple requested the guests wear costumes. Given that my friend is a fan of a historical tv program, she asked if...
Breakfast Is Tiffany

Breakfast Is Tiffany

“Breakfast Is Tiffany”, original artwork by Billy Tackett, used with permission. Part of his “Dead, White & Blue” series, Mr. Tackett came up with a truly challenging design to try to replicate in fabric. Given all of the the details that...
