Making Your Own Bliss
Phew. Life. After two months of recovery and working from home, I went back to campus this week.  This coming week, I get to go back to the gym and we have auditions. The week after includes the beginning of rehearsal and another follow-up with my surgeon. ...

Setting the (Tiny) Stage
It is the dead of winter in Central New York and the snow  is up past my knees, It is tough to put myself into a spring state of mind right now. It is even harder to imagine a semi-tropical island with roaring waves, sandy beaches, and quiet solitude. Okay,...
It is the dead of winter in Central New York and the snow is up past my knees, It is tough to put myself into a spring state of mind right now. It is even harder to imagine a semi-tropical island with roaring waves, sandy beaches, and quiet solitude. Okay, the solitude is pretty easy to imagine.

Reaching for the stars: Adventures in Paper Piecing
You know how things look lovely on the internet and you think, "Oh, I can surely do that!" Then you actually start the project and realize what a production it truly is. So it goes with me and English Paper Piecing. This is part of The Big US Quilt project,...

Making Progress: The Big US Quilt
Whoa. When I decided to combine three things that I wanted to do, I guess that I didn't realize how big of an undertaking that it was. I have ordered supplies online (since I am still in semi-quarantine from my surgery) and decided that being super-organize...

Doctor Who Craft Round Up: 2015 Edition
Late last week, I saw that Netflix was on the verge of losing shows from the BBC. Thankfully, that has not come to pass, thank Ood. Being the huge geeky gal that I am (as well as a massive anglophile in general), I was relieved to hear this news. I immediat...

Putting It Together
So...have you ever bared your soul to the unseeing public and then felt like an idiot?  After throwing my loving boyfriend under the bus this week, I felt a bit like a heel. He was okay with it, thankfully. I used that energy to work on the afghan. Yep, I a...

Paper Dolls for Grown-ups AKA Costume Design
So, I feel most like myself when I am working on a show. It has been a major part of my life for the last 30 years (yikes!). Multiple sclerosis and my surgery took me out of the musical this year, but we are a scant three weeks away from starting the annual...

Stitching the Nation: The Big US Quilt

Every day the nation becomes more of a reality. I have caught up with the rest of the 50 States Stitching Cub, so it was time to turn to the map. Each state has been appliqued with the fabric that will be the corresponding quilt block and in some way invokes the motif for that state.

Quilting Isn't For Sissies

Some women turn into their mothers. Not me. I am turning into my Grandma. I am kinda excited about it. As soon as I finished working on Friday, I started working on The Quilt. I started cutting out squares and states out of the coordinating fabrics. I wasn't the only one having fun.

From sea to shining sea: The Big US Quilt
You would think that after the afghan debacle, that I would be off blankets forever. Just the opposite--I just completed designing my FIRST quilt pattern .  I didn't design all of the elements, but I am taking two great projects by fabulous designers and pu...
The first element is a DIY United States quilt kit designed by Haptic Lab. I received it as a birthday gift two years ago, but having been waiting for the perfect project to use it. Second is the awesome 50 States Stitching Club by my favorite embroidery designer, Mollie Johanson at Wild Olive.

Needle Felted Wool Ball Garland How-To
I'm a gal who likes a garland or a bunting and some sparkly lights. What can I say, I'm fancy.  I have crocheted snowflakes for a garland, made a fun fabric bunting, and I am currently stitching up the hearts from Shiny Happy World   to make a new garland. ...

WIP Wednesday: The Never-ending Afghan
A very wise person once said, "I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday." He or she was obviously talking about making an afghan. Obviously. Good News: all the squares are complete. Bad News: Because of the design that I chose, I have to ...
A very wise person once said, "I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday." He or she was obviously talking about making an afghan. Obviously. Good News: all the squares are complete. Bad News: Because of the design that I chose, I have to make 28 granny triangles.
