I made this Paint Horse Pillow pillow last winter and blogged about it.  One of the things I adore about blogging is the people I have met. The friends I’ve made. My friend Suzanne of Fairchild Farmgirl  is an artist, mom to 8, wife to Big D, and surrogate mother to untold number of cattle, ducks, […]

I have a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box. Last year I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only about 1/10th of what’s in there. I would never tackle a project like these blocks even with modern fabrics.  It’s much too tedious for me. But there […]

   I posted about this quilt a few months ago.  At the time I thought it was the ugliest quilt ever made. As it turns out, it is the most favorite one I’ve ever made. I went on an Artist’s Retreat to Santa Fe in November, having just finished the top. I showed the blog […]

  Creative Everyday Challenge  Art Everyday Month I feel like a cheater.  I bought these wild quilt blocks from my custom quilter. She bought them from her mother, who bought them from a craft sale. I did not pay $20 for them. It was more like $10. I would never have the patience to put […]
