SewConnected has been the such a great experience!  I love swapping blocks with other quilters, and pushing my creativity.  December was our final month, I'm just a month and a half late!  Thankfully Audrey is not in a hurry, and she loves the block :)I've stepped back from swaps for now, waiting to see how [...]

While not fully well, I do feel much better than I did last night when I wrote my last post. Thanks for the get well wishes! We woke to frost this morning, just as the calendar says it is fall - overnight! Time to hide the shorts from the kids, so they don't freeze and [...]

Sarah of house of krom, or krommama on flickr, surprised us this month by not sending fabrics! Instead she asked that we use our scraps to make a wonky log cabin house. Super fun and something new for me :)This is my busy, wonky log cabin house! I found some old scraps I haven't seen [...]

Jessica at Twin Fibers sent out vintage sheets for this months block. I hemmed and hawed trying to decide exactly how to put this block together. Especially after beautiful blocks started showing up in the group pool - everyone there has something different to add to the group! In the end I framed out the [...]

I had a plan originally to make a [...]
