I shared my quilting studio space via Instagram yesterday, and thought I better keep it real, and put it up here too! It looks pretty messy still, but it’s all picked up and I can walk around a bit – huge improvement!
My Melody is dropped into the little table on the left, Crown Jewel is slightly covered with projects I’m currently piecing, the aluminum table at the right is on casters and moves where I need it easily. Fabric, my patterns, and notions are on the book shelf, there’s a matching shelf out of frame, to the left full of books, and magazines. It’s definitely not perfect, but I do look forward to spending time here, and know where everything is. Which is key!
There’s more decluttering to be done (always), but for now I’m back to my projects.

Have you seen Soak’s curated nail colors? They have nail colors that coordinate with fabric! I was sent this collection recently, and challenged to share my thoughts with you on the product, and a nail design.
I admit this took me longer than I had anticipated to actually do. I was dragging my feet to find something creative to do with them! I do paint my nails often, but usually it’s pretty quick and simple – just enough paint to keep them from breaking, again.
I started with two coats of Mushroom
And Ella, my oldest started with two messy coats of Faded Glamour
We are of the mindset that it will clean up later :)
After much deliberation, I added a line of Deep Chocolate, carefully using the edge of the brush.
Then finished it off with a pop of Hot Opera! I love … Read More »

With my kids out of school, everyday feels like a Saturday, and I keep having to stop and figure out what day it is! I’ve been sewing tons, and have some fun things to share in the coming weeks.
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas – we did! It’s so fun with the kids getting older, they get really excited about everything. One of their gifts, was gifts cards to Build-A-Bear from Grandpa & Grandma. We waited a few days to use the gift cards, and the line was out the door when we got there! Of course we waited, and the kids had a blast customizing their bears.
The other gift that has kept them busy is the new xbox with kinect. We love that there’s no controllers to hang … Read More »

I’m so glad that so many are excited about Calypso Swing – I love the vibe, and look forward to piecing a quilt top.
I caved and ordered some hexagons for paper piecing over the weekend. I’m excited to have some hand work, but a bit overwhelmed by the long term nature of a quilt…they will probably become smaller projects. Paperpieces is offering free domestic/international shipping this week.
That’s all for the moment –
Hi there! I’ve been sick…it’s gone around our entire family – but the end is in sight! 2 boxes of Saltines and a 2 liter of ginger ale, and I think we are all on the mend. Thankfully Joe and I weren’t sick at the same time, that really would have been a mess!
So I need to tell you who won the Sweet Divinity giveaway!

Question for you:
Do you have a favorite creative magazine?
There’s lots out there, some great, some not so great. Some I can get local, some I can’t.
And so I’m looking for your feedback! Do you have a favorite? Why is it your favorite? Do I need every issue?
Thanks in advance!
