Bitingly Good or It Bites?

Here’s a question for you. I’ve heard several people praise the book Twilight (and its sequels) by Stephanie Meyer.  I sometimes like YA books and that sort of thing sounds right up my alley, so a couple of times I’ve been at a book store and picked it up, and yet I’ve never bought it. […]

Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #68

1. A couple of evenings ago, I wandered around our yard, looking for photo ops for future Daily Art Thangs, and as I headed back to the house, I found EvilDemonKittySky looking very decorative, so I had to take his photo.

Isn’t he handsome?
But then he revealed his true nature, and I had to get a […]

Do You See What I See?

Remember a few months ago when I reluctantly decided to give up on wearing contacts and go back to wearing glasses full time? You don’t? Yeah, I’m a little fuzzy on exactly when it happened too and I don’t feel like digging through the archives, so I’m not going to be linking to a former […]

I could, of course, toss another meme or quiz or something at you. And I […]

A New Quilt Series (and exciting bonus contest!)

Did you notice that title? DID you?? Not just “a new quilt” but “a new quilt series”! Lalalaaaa. Justified or not, I’m feeling all accomplished and obnoxiously pleased with myself at the moment. Can you tell?
Here’s the deal. It all started when I did this little doodle. At some point one of the drawings […]

Boundless Joy

Good Mail
A while back, I participated in a BaggO’ sCraps swap with an email group I’m on. Yesterday I received the quilt that Dara made from (mostly) the scraps I supplied.

“The Heart Unchecked Knows Boundless Joy” (27 1/2″ x 23″) by Dara Tokarz
Cool, yes? The center is machine quilted, but the outer part is hand-quilted […]
