    In many ways, quilts are like puzzles...

    Discernment is like a puzzle. There are some pieces with straight edges that define the boundary of the process. There are some pieces that are immediately recognizable by their color, shape, or design. Those pieces begin to form the vision of the bigger picture. Then, there are the mystery pieces that take time and contemplation and, perhaps, invite the thoughts and expertise of others who are interested in your journey. Yet the Creator of ...

  5. Not about quilting, but about exciting news!

    Have had a long but exciting couple of days in Minneapolis. One of the things I do when I'm not sewing is act as a parliamentarian for Lutheran congregations and groups.

    Yesterday and today I was the parliamentarian for the Minneapolis Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Those 700+ lay people and clergy did several things, but one thing they did was very exciting, to me.

    For the first time, ever, they elected a woman as their new Bishop!

This morning when getting ready to spend the day out of town with an old friend, those pants were nowhere to be found. I already had on a bright red sweater so I needed dark pants. I found a pair of very dark green ones a size smaller.

  8. I admit it. I'm a fabric hoarder. And I'm glad I am.

    by , 02-18-2012 at 06:31 AM
    A few days ago I stopped into one of our Walmarts to look for a particular notion and while I was there anyway ... I just HAD to take a look through the fabric!

    Let me back up a bit. My FIRM rule for shopping for fabric at Walmart is to never, not ever, pay more than $3.99 a yard, and if it's cheaper, all the better. That said, I've really increased my stash exponentially at this store. Much of that is thanks to my husband who loves to dig through the bolts and more often than not ...

    Your local library might well be another source as long as you have a copy/scanner.
