On the eve of St. John's Day

Tonight we celebrate the eve of St. John’s Day all over the country. It is the shortest night of the year, in terms of hours of darkness, and the celebrations intend to “erase” the night and extend the “day” until the sun rises again, so huge fires are lit everywhere at dusk, and kept burning all night. The fires are also used to burn old stuff, seeking some type of purification and the opportunity to start anew with nothing old. Students, just off school, will burn their useless workbooks and… Continue

I'm sure you have all heard about the earthquake in Italy some days ago. Did you hear the story about a 90 year old lady the firefighters rescued from her house three days later? I found it sweet and would like to share it with you in case you haven't heard it. In any case, I sorrow and pray for the victims and hope those who survived can quickly recover from all their losses.



This 90 year old lady lived by herself in an apartment. No telephone, no tv set, no radio. Every day she… Continue

Why I love quilting

A very kind friend suggested I share this with all of you ... so here it is.



Apart from the more material aspects of patchwork, such as collecting a stash or producing beautiful quilts, I now know there is another part I love about all this … and its the wonderful fraternity and generosity among quilters. Of course, my quilts are far from perfect, but every time I’ve shown one, comments have always been sooooo kind. A patchwork colleague will always praise your work. There will… Continue
