When Fabric Meets Crochet

Not too long ago, I was reading “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert and was struck by her writing on the nature of ideas. She believes that ideas are alive and they they can jump from soul to soul in order to find the most efficient route to earth. Since I haven’t done much crafting since my son was born, and I haven’t found much inspiration … Continue reading When Fabric Meets Crochet

Hand-Pieced Hexagons

One of my favorite parts of quilting is the gathering of fabric.  Sometimes a quilt comes together quickly.  I spot a collection or a fat quarter bundle that I love and a quilt idea is born.  Other times the fabric comes together slowly, a fabric or two at a time.  As as the collection grows, so does the plan for a quilt.  This was the … Continue reading Hand-Pieced Hexagons
