I kinda feel like Cinderella. This bird is less than an arms length from me.

His 2 siblings are sitting on a wire, fewer than 5 feet above my head. (and off to the right, I don't need bird crap hair products)

The current bid is embarrassingly low. This is for a really good cause.

There is at least 40 hours of work in this - how much does that work out to, even at minimum wage in your city? Fabric costs are $7-14/yard. There are probably 13-15 yards here.

I'll bet there's a way to donate if you can't swing the $450-600 this beauty is worth. Click through and do what you can. Call it a karma thing.
End of the line... this is your last chance! This Fundraiser Auction ends in six hours. How much money can we raise to feed and teach orphans in Tanzania? How much are you ready to pay for the handmade quilt "Rainbow Edge"? Bid now: https://www.adrielwiggins.com/quilt-auction

Our neighbor's heat pump has not worked for at least 18 months, but I hear it trying to cycle on multiple times an hour.

Wouldn't you think they'd do something to the thermostat to stop that from happening?

Okay, here's a random shot in the dark.

Some of you know that I teach one-day mystery quilt classes in western Washington (state, for alla you easterners).

If you're in the neighborhood, if you want to take a road trip, if you're adventurous, give the shop(s) below a call and reserve your seat!

Upcoming 9-5:00 Saturday classes are
May 13 at Whalen Quiltworks, Centralia - I-5 Exits 82 (SB) or 81 (NB)
(360) 807-1255

May 27 at Heavenly Quilts & Fabrics Redeemed, Onalaska - I-5 Exit 71
(360) 978-6300

There's another class scheduled in June in Onalaska, but I'm questioning myself on the dates. :-/

Many of you know that my mom is in Care now, and that is where she will be until The End. My experience over the past 18 months of this has changed both Mr. W. and me, changed my opinion of her, and changed my (our?) view of how important STUFF is (it's not).

This is a quick read. It probably doesn't say anything you don't already know at some level, but take it from me: That's not an inaccurate title.

Okay, those-who-know-about-building-things, what's your educated guess about the size of this living room?

It's not a contest, I'm trying to find a place with a room large enough to book a mini-retreat... But it's rare that online vacation rental places actually tell you how big a room is.

Okay, about half the class finished, the other half was very close.

Do you think I should post the dates of my classes here, in case a local Plusser wants to play?

Nobody's thrown their hands up or broken down in tears ...

If it wasn't for an impromptu licorice ice cream break, we'd have a couple of people ready to go to the wall!

Another mystery quilt, with a whole roomful of (mystery) virgins.

Woot!
