Insane!!

that's how I feel right now.  After reading lesly's post about talkin' tuesdays and they fun they've been having, curiosity got the better of me and I clicked the link to Twitter
Oh no.  I so did not need to do that.  I have been living a very full life without tweeting about it for 31 years.. but I got sucked in.  or, well, I'm in the "overwhelmed" stage, as they say.

So quick, help.  Do you tweet?  How does it all work?  How long til I make sense of it all?

And how do I get this photo to be my profile pic?
It doesn't seem to let me crop the pic down the way facebook does. 

Ok, deep breath, I know I'll figure it out eventually.  (So much for the 3 quilts I wanted sandwiched and quilted before the end of the month) 

Why do I feel like that girl at the party whose friends just pulled her unwillingly onto the dance floor?
If you are on twitter, please tell me who you follow..

    that's how I felt! until cool quilt bloggers that I respect started talking about how much fun they were having over there, with other quilters.. and I'm not one who wants to be left out of a quilty party...

  4. Yeah, I have a twitter account, but haven't really used it. I have no idea what I'm doing! Don't teach me!!! As it is I read too many blogs and do't sew enough. hahaha.

  6. I think Twitter is fun! I also follow a lot of geeky academic stuff as well as quilty stuff, so it's always good for some interesting reads. Not to mention Talkin' Tuesdays - they are a riot. I have not jumped into #gdas (Get Drunk and Sew) on Fridays yet, however.

  7. New follower to your blog here. *wavin'* I'm on Twitter & FB. I keep FB for my "family" stuff but and Twitter for my ME stuff like quilting. I've been to Talkin' Tuesdays. I haven't done #gdas either. Unfortunately, my #talknt time has been shortened too. My urchins have been keeping me busy. Talkin' Tuesdays is a good place to meet people really. Pat Sloan, Cara (host of #talknt)& Kimberly Jolly (Fat Quarter Shop) are a few of the pals I've made. It's a fun time.

    Hey, a lot can be said in 140 characters y'know. :-) LOL!

  8. Sounds like fun...I have a twitter account but have never used it. I seem to have some kind of block about it :( If you have managed to figure out how to play on twitter, I'd love to hear about it.

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!
