pens or pins? that is the question...

What's one to do when the heart and hands enjoy words and fabric, the pattern of paragraphs and quilts to an equal enthusiasm? To solve my dilemma I'm writing the print that stirs me and sharing the journey of blending fabrics into quilts and wearables, the discovery of old--be it quilts or friends, and the pleasures of today. Come...have a visit with me.

Eleven favorite things on 1-11-11

Fascination with this date inspired this post. Think how cool it would be to have this birthday or anniversary. And it happens again in a slightly different way, come November. Try 11-1-11. I haven't researched the odds of numbers connecting like this (and for certain, I am not a math talent), but I enjoyed thinking of eleven things that make my heart smile. Actually, since I began this on 1-11-11 and I'm closing in on 1-17-11 I've added a few. Think of your smiles--what makes you happy? It is d-i-f-i-c-u-l-t to narrow it down. My list is in no specific order. They are all smiles.

FRED, my neighbor's pretend cow.
He's a smile everyday--even dresses up for special occasions!

FABRICS --and threads
Patterns and stitches--a big smile!

My grands! I love their journey, their funny stories
and the richness they provide each day
My writing group--never gets better than when we
are learning and laughing together. All smiles
My hubby and the memories of happiness
we make together--Thanks and smiles

Artists that stretch my abilities. Here,
Sue Spargo--a real treasure and big smile!

My dear daughter and grands--Thanks and four smiles!

My sister--always pushes me through--
Thanks and smiles

Friends, friends, friends--all smiles

Sunsets and the glory of God's promise--
Thank you--BIG smile

Delicious bounty of food --YUM!--and smiles

BOOKS, BOOKS and more--
a smile for every volume

QUILTS -old and new--rich with smiles

CREATIVITY --in multiple venues

And in addition......



and your smiles--send me yours,

Best,until next time,


and God's word: Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.
