Happiness Is . . . . .

Happiness is a new shipment of fabric on a Monday morning!

And a wee bit of news . . . . . coming soon!  Starting in April, I'll be listing all of my newly completed quilt tops for sale here on my website, a couple of weeks (or more) before putting them on Ebay.  And at a 10% discount off my Ebay prices.

Make Quilts.  Be Happy.

The Quilt Show - Free this Weekend (March 18-19)

In recognition of International Quilting Day, the folks over at The Quilt Show have made all shows in Series 1 - 17 free for the weekend.  (Don't try Series 18 - it's not included as I found out when I was testing this out.)

Here's the link:

The site is slow - and apparently crashed altogether yesterday due to heavy traffic, but appears to be working now.  And, no, you don't have to enter "The Contest" unless you want to, to watch.

Make Quilts.  Be Happy.

Whoa! Is that MY studio?

So this morning I thought I'd share some pics of my studio.  (We all like a peek into other peoples studios, right?)  Yesterday, after living here for 10 months, it seemed to be time to finally get my studio together.  Jeez - after 10 months, yah think?  I had new lighting installed a couple of months ago, and it only seemed sensible to actually be working under the new lights.

Hand Dyeing Wool

I've been hand dyeing yarn quite a bit lately so I thought I'd share some pictures.  Here are the skeins drying overnight last night.  I use a microwave (not the one I cook in) as a heat source.

 These are the "logs" waiting to go into the microwave:
