Yep, I'm officially crazy...
In case there was any doubt, this morning I proved that I am quite crazy. I took a perfectly good quilt, which I not only got grand champion for at the fair, I even got 100 out of 100 points, and did a bunch of stitching through the whole thing..... I did chicken out a bit and used thread that I knew wouldn't show too much :-) (for those who didn't see the earlier post, I added the treeline in the background)
And it turned out that my package slip yesterday was only HALF of my big order, I'll wait until the rest comes to post a picture of that. I'm already having fun with it though, the first draft of a fall leaf quilt is on my design wall. I have learned to let them sit for awhile, I always see things later that I didn't notice at first. That is so hard for me though, I should leave it for a few days, but I often can only scrape together enough patience to wait a few hours :-) The stitching changes them so much, I'm always anxious to get it on there!

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
