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 […]

My studio. This is where the magic happens friends. My studio. Which is just an extra room in our walk-out basement. I think we originally planned it to be an “exercise” room. As if that was ever going to happen. I don’t think it really qualifies as a basement. It’s just the lower level of […]

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, […]

If “Cowgirl-Red” married “Dia de los Muertos”  that’s what you would get. Ladies and Gentlemen, I announce the birth of ……… “El Gringo Cowboy” “cowboy” pronounced  “kuh-BOY “ Say it now…… El Gringo Cowboy ! If I had a little cowgirl or cowboy close by I could use them for a model. That would be what […]

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. […]

Everyone has a dream. I’ve had many.   About 7 years ago I started “Cowgirl-Red”. I wasn’t sure where she was going to go.   I set goals. I got coaching. I planned. I blogged. I sewed. I lived my crazy life.  Cowgirl-Red is pretty much just like me. (Actually, she is me.)  She pretty much […]

 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.    […]

 My name is Terah and I have serious addiction …. to vintage quilts. Not all vintage quilts…..  Just the ones that are unfinished. Unusual. That speak to me. That need some TLC. That want to be brought back out into the light. From wherever they were hiding. To fulfill the purpose “She” intended.   A […]
