Dear Stella Oceans & Foxes

Good morning, afternoon, or evening, depending on your current location! I just want to tell you how much I fell in love with these two differently themed but similarly colored lines - Dark and Stormy and Luna  from Dear Stella. I love them a LOT !   :) They MOSTLY go together with Luna being mostly Night and Sky prints, but of course this adorable little fox would be Shark Bait for the sharks filling up the one Dark and Stormy print. Maybe the fox is a ship mascot...

Linen and Lawn

Today's post is about another line of fabric - a cotton lawn with mostly tiny prints. Does it feel like the 1970's again with a broader range of color and range to you like it does to me?

I met Sue in May at Quilt Market -- Super Delightful...

It was very fun mixing these together. Be sure to stop by over at the Quiltmania Post here for a few more pictures and to...

American Country & Hello Jane

First off, I want to say thanks for all of the kind words in regards to my "I Quit" post. So wonderful knowing I am not alone. It is funny because just by sharing that I have those thoughts sometimes, I seemed to totally disarm those negative thoughts in my head. It was like "aha, you nasty bad vibes, see you CANNOT take me down, because you have been exposed for what you are - empty and without any bite" or something like that. Probably...

I Quit . . .

there, did I get your attention??    :) Today's post is a bit more like my early days of Blogging when I shared more "non" quilty things along with all of the Textiley goodness here. But don't worry, I am scattering random studio pix and pictures of my week in Sisters (from my phone) in here just so you have something to look at it, if you get bored by my rambling.  :) I often declare "I Quit!" to myself and sometimes my darling wife, Linda, when...
