I thought this would be fun


  1. nice video...and you look fabulous! Love the turquoise quilt...and the winding ways one on the chair...

  2. So nice to hear your voice - love the concept - great idea. I liked what you said about your favoite area in the room - it makes you feel happy and I think we all have that little place in our rooms - the sisterhood of the quilt experience. Thank you!

  3. What a great idea to post a video! Thanks for taking the time. I agree with you, it helps us get to know you. I read a few blogs that have never included a photo of themselves! It's so anonymous.

  4. Love the video ... Love your new Quilty Space!
    I don't know how to do video - but I'll take pictures of my quilting room!

  5. Thank you for making this video! Your sewing space is lovely and I wish you lots of sewing joy in there!
    BY the way, I used to burn that exact incense too! LOL!


  6. I enjoyed this...I had to refrain from rearranging my sweatshop yet again...smiles

  7. Thank you. You are right, having a face and a voice is nice. When someone I care about moves into a new home, I really appreciate being able to see it so I have a place to imagine them in. It's similar when words that impact me are matched up to a person.

    I used to have a sewing room. Then I had a baby. Now, I have a table that collects all of the items I am not ready to deal with in addition to all of my crafting items. Not surprisingly, sewing has become an infrequent activity. So sad.

    I just found your blog & clearly love digging through archives...

My Travel Quilt Story

**ETA-- Check out my completed Travel Quilt #3 here**

I don't know about you, but I check my blogger stats a couple times a day.  It's nice to see how readers find me, who has linked to me, and where they are.  In the last week though, there's been a gap, a hole.  I usually have at least a couple hits a week from readers in Japan, this week-- none.  Of course with such tragedy, I can't expect them to take time out (and use valuable electricity) to check in on my little ol' blog here, but still, the absence makes me worry about them even more.  I was thinking about how I can go back to  posting more about quilts but still satisfy my need to talk about Japan.. 

Victoria took this great photo of me at her retreat last weekend and I've wanted to write a post about it, and then it clicked, "Oh Yeah~" let's go back to the quilt that started me off on my EPP obsession..
Here we go.  Travel Quilt #1, aka "Ayane's Star" See, I was going to J…

12 Hexies Blog Hop!!

Hexies!  Hexies!  Hexies!

What's not to love?  Even though I fell in love with EPP through 60 degree diamonds, once I started to hex seriously, I found that they're so soothing.  When basted to templates, they are perfectly contained little morsels of my favorite fabrics, portable, pleasing, playful..

Today is my day on the 12 Hexies Blog Hop and I've got a little tutorial for how to make a pin cushion with just 8 hexagons.  Though this is my tutorial, I can't take credit for coming up with the shape/pattern of the pin cushion.  I actually saw it on flickr ages ago, and in the comments of that pic, the poster referenced another blog post that she was inspired by.  Really folks, it's 8 hexies joined together.. there are only so many ways to do it.  But they go together so nicely and you can turn them into a really substantial pin cushion, so let's have a go at it--
First cut and baste your hexies.  I'm using 3 5/8" squares on 1 1/2" paper hexagon …

Monday Morning Star Count, November 30, 2015

I have not even sewn one stitch this week.  I did manage to find my cutting table and mat, and it was nice to see them after what seemed like too long, but I didn't cut anything.  I didn't press anything.  I didn't do much other than ponder how I will organize my new space.

If you have stitched though, please tell us!
