bloggers bom #5...


Could swear I just made block #4 from Jackie's Bloggers Block of the Month! Here is #5 designed by John over at Quilt Dad made with Dots and Kaffe scraps like my previous ones. Haven't sewn anything in so long that I feel new at it and slightly awkward. Would like to think that my machine missed me....

hello 2012...



Well it has been a rough start to the year so far. Got a respiratory infection over the holidays and as someone who has never even had a chest cold I chose to ignore it. The short version is that I ended up doing the middle of the night emergency run and discovered that I have pneumonia. No sewing or much of anything except endless sleeping and some trolling of the internet is going on here. You know you are sick when you have no interest in quilts or textiles of any sort. I did want to share a site for generating color palettes that you may or may not be familiar with. It is called Kuler and it is a load of fun. You can see color combinations that other people have created and upload photos to make your own. There is a very good introductory video here that shows you how to use the site. Enjoy!
