I was feeling scrappy last weekend. Literally and figuratively. There are two meanings to scrappy and I qualified for both. “Made up of scraps or of odds and ends; fragmented: disconnected.” “Fond of fighting, arguing, or competing.”   These are the days I’m not fit for human companionship. I put myself in time-out and […]

How I know I’m in good mental shape?  When I’m engaging in the things that I love. This is how I knew I might finally be healing from the effects of Lyme. Around the end of May I started sewing again. Honestly I had not stepped foot in my sewing room since about January. I […]

I have a muse. I think everybody does. According to my online dictionary a muse is a noun and a verb. My “Muse” is my sister goddess who presides over my art. She visits me while I’m “musing”. I thought I might share some of my process with you. I don’t really have a process, […]

Some of you may remember my old friend, The Amish Cowgirl Well, I said goodbye to her Saturday. It’s hard to say goodbye when you’ve been friends for so long.   She was my first vintage quilt. I sold her to someone who really wanted and appreciated her and will cherish her in her home. […]

  A short post today because I am so excited. I want everyone to know that Cowgirl-Red is on the road to Wichita. Aspen Boutique. Douglas & Oliver. Wichita 4 Corners Fall Festival   10-6  Taking a few of the “girls” with us. Come see us!! Love,  Terah    aka  Cowgirl-Red

 I call this one “The Story of My Life” quilt. The pattern is an old one called “Trip Around the World”. I bought it at an antique store in Wichita the same day I saw the Surfer Jesus . “Trip Around the World”  is apropos for my life.   Because ….. I’ve been everywhere, man.    […]

This was originally posted in 2011.  Under the title “Vintage Quilt Blocks.”  I promised you another post when I finished the backing and binding so here it is. (3 years later…..  don’t judge, …. I’ve been busy) I know I’ve said this before. But this may very well be my favorite project to date. In […]

This blog post was originally published in 2012. Which was before the  “Great Escape”  of 2013.  I finished the quilt. I’ve got my mojo back! Quilting for Karma   …..  2014 I had a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box.  I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only […]

Staying with the “Our Lady” theme …..   I hope I’m not doing anything insensitive here.  I’m not Catholic, but I have consulted my Catholic girlfriends, and I have spent lots of time in Mexico. I love the art form of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This is one of the fabric art panels I bought […]

Full disclosure here:  I’m not Catholic. I’m Cowgirl. But if I was going to choose a religion based solely on art and visual imagery, I would totally convert. Catholics have us beat.  Hands down. (Hands up actually) Not that it’s a contest or anything. Especially the Hispanic Catholics. Because they have “Our Lady”. And they […]
