Finding myself..

on other people's blogs today!  Thanks you guys!

Shannon (who quilted three of the quilts in the book) wrote a blog post on my book this morning and shares some details on how she helped with the project.  Read her post here.

And Jo at Sewing is for girls did up a real nice review of the book (full of photos and information) in a blog post last week.  (Oh, the things you find when you Google yourself..)  You can read it here.

I'm going to enter one of the book quilts in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival later this week, as soon as I can get some decent photos.  So pop back later for that, ok?


  1. Funny, I was just thinking about you and your book yesterday!! Excited to see it out - let me know if you need a reviewer!!!

  2. Hi Jessica, living in England i have been the proud owner of your book for a couple of weeks and I just love is so refreshing and inspiring. I have had a long love of hexagons and patchwork (as we brits call EPP) but never been sure how to be more creative with it...your book has opened up a whole new world and now I have found your blog, I can see what i have been missing. keep up the good work.

    1. I'm glad you like the book~ please let me know if you try any of the patterns, I'd love to see your progress.

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…

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!

You don't realize how much you are actually going to lose when you go through a divorce.  You mostly think of the things you don't like and how you will be rid of them.  The things you'll gain like personal choice and freedom.  I knew I would lose big things.  Time with my children.  My home.  
But there are other things that are gone that have had much bigger impact than I could have anticipated.  Like my washer and dryer.  
I spend an awful lot of time at the laundromat these days, but also doing laundry wherever else I'm able to.  Not having free laundry access has greatly influenced my routines and the choices I make.  Not unlike when I lived in Washburn and would wear only light colors one week and only dark colors the next.  You choose clothes that wash easily and wear well.  You are strategic with your wardrobe choices based on when you can do laundry again..
