It’s been a while…

My husband tells me that even though I can’t write much about what I am currently working on, I should make a post to that affect. But I know you want to hear more than that, now don’t you?  Like, where the heck I have been for the last 5-ish months? And what’s been going on in the world of hasty quilting? And what even happened to that crazy art show I was taking part … Continue reading

Yesterday there was S.E.X.

Minds out of the gutter, please. We’re talking “Stash Enhancement eXpedition”, thankyouverymuch.

Saturday was the Wolf Moon/Old Moon: Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name … Continue reading

An Introduction of Sorts

So I was born…well, how about I not go back that far. I am not a trained artist. What I have learned, I have learned through those elementary school art classes and trial and error. I may have taken a class here and there, but mainly, it’s all trial and error. I picked up quilting about 7 years ago when I discovered that a (then new) friend was quite an accomplished quilter herself. Quilting was … Continue reading
