On the Other Hand...
I could just ignore the pain in my thumb
for it seems a mere mosquito bite,
a small irritation when compared
to others with far worse injuries
But, on the other hand, I can seek help
from trained medical professionals
well experienced in their field
who can diagnose this little
I could just complain, rant and rave
and make life miserable…Continue

From most of the feedback I have received, it seems that my intentions of posting my "Health Coach to Quilters" information have been misunderstood.
I was actually wanting to just get some objective feedback from quilters about what I was trying to do - from people who are not already my friends - again - I lost a dear friend to cancer and I do not think she had to die - I am trying to find ways to help people - and I am a quilter - I am 66 years old and retired - still do teach at…Continue

What in the world happened to the spring? Not real sure we had one down here in northwest Florida. The month of June came in with a heat wave and has never let up. So HOT and HUMID!!!! So basically I'm stuck staying inside in the A/C. So thankful for air conditioning. If I could meet the person who invented A/C, I would have to do something really special for them. Maybe make them one of Paula Deen's Banana Split Icecream Cakes. So yummmmmm! Anyway, I was going to make a quilt this…Continue

Happy yoga - from Bianca.
I've been quilting for many years. There have been times that I have walked away from quilting for months even years then all of a sudden the urge hits me and it's all I want to do. I may quilt for weeks, months or years, just depends on how long the bug stays. Over the years, I have taken many quilt classes and met lots of world renown teachers and many, many quilters. Quilters of all ages, race, size and religious backgrounds. Most were people that I will never forget for different…Continue
