I've been without network connectivity for a couple days because of where we were at. We've spent an awesome 2 days in Monument Valley, AZ. Check out my blog to get caught up on our pleasures and perils. Lots of pictures. http://www.oddsandinns.blogspot.com/ No quilt shop yet, hoping to find one in Flagstaff.
Hello everyone. It has been a while since I last visited. Been very busy with work, family and some sewing. My husband and I are currently traveling the southwest with our furthermost destination The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. When we travel, we try to stay at some of the more unique accommodations along the way. Check out my blog Odds and Inns for my daily posts. I am hoping to run across some quilt shops along…Continue
Ladies - I need your opinions, suggestions and honest feedback. I am 57 and anticipating the possibility of retiring within the next 5 years. I am toying with the idea of starting a business providing sewing and quilting services. I need to understand what would provide the most profit.

I have…Continue
I just got the material for this the other day. Can't wait to get started on it.
Here in Frisco, Texas yesterday we got 6 inches of snow and that was after 2 inches of ice. This morning the temps finally got above freezing. I saw the funniest thing. A mother was in a field out back of some apartments pulling a laundry basket by a rope with her baby in the basket. Since we don't see snow that much here we do with what we got to have fun in the snow. Anyway, got out to buy fabric for my online quilting class, but just could not find what I wanted. Couldn't get over…Continue
From here in snowy Frisco, Texas I am still working. The whole Dallas area has been pretty much shut down since Tuesday. First it was 1-2 inches of ice. Then last night we got 6 inches of snow and it is still snowing. However, those of us who consider ourselves lucky to be working from home do have a disadvantage on days like this. With the exception of the periods of rolling blackouts, we still have our internet connection and can just work away. :-( Personally, I'd rather be sewing…Continue
I am searching for a good quality soft small corduroy in gray. Does anyone have suggestions?
