About Me
I am a mystery writer who quilts or maybe I'm a quilter who writes mysteries. My 7th "Quilted Mystery" has just released, Murder by Kindness: The Gift Quilt which is available in hardcover and on Kindle. My debut book--Murder by Serpents: The Mystery Quilt was released in November 2007. The sequel, Murder by Artifact: The Murder Quilt released November 2009. And Murder by Music: The Wedding Quilt in November 2011. Murder by Vegetable: The Baby Quilt in 2012. Followed by Murder by Sunlight: The Charity Quilt and Murder by Gravity: The Coffin Quilt .Each one includes "clues" for a mystery quilt.

I have been quilting for 27 years now and continue to be totally addicted to it. So many quilts, so little time. I enjoy hand quilting and find it relaxes me although I am slow. My sewing machine and I have a "non-compete" clause so it does not do the quilting. My new machine claims it can teach me to be able to use it to quilt simple things. We'll see.

Paducah news!

I am thrilled. I just learned that my quilt has been juried in to the Spring show in Paducah. I know it will not win anything but it is exciting nonetheless. Squeee!

Happy New Year (although January is flying by)

I hope everyone is enjoying 2018. I am having a bit of a problem remembering the year. What happened to 2017 and many prior years? Eek. And now January will fly by as well.

I got my shoveling and dog walking done fairly early today so I thought I'd start another new project to go with the 900 other UFO's. I think I must be dumb as a brick. I got a gift card for our local shop for Christmas so, in the spirit of the season, I spent it all plus some. 

Here is my wisdom for the…


Merry Christmas to all!

I am keeping a close eye on the weather. We are supposed to fly out on Saturday. Each time I check the long range forecast the thing changes. It is looking probable that there will be ice, snow and subzero temperatures.

That's here. And we will be flying into more of the same kind of thing. Maybe we will have a white Christmas. (It could wait until we all get to our destinations)

On the quilting front, I am binding the second "good deed" quilt. After this, I am going to…


Happy Thanksgiving!

We are having a warm Thanksgiving today. 60 degrees. Now some of you will shiver just thinking about it but we have already had snow and cold. This is great dog walking weather. They will not be joining us for dinner as we are going out. What they don't know won't hurt--right?

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Thanks for your concern, Barbara.  It's been pretty devastating in the northeastern part of the state.  We are in the southwestern part.  We've had a long winter (as I'm sure you have had, too) with lots of snow and, weirdly enough, quite a bit of rain.  We had mild flooding just from snowmelt, rain, and runoff, but we are quite a ways between major waterways - about halfway between the Platte and the Republican rivers.  Not much in the way of streams or creeks around here either.  We're ready for spring, though, that's for sure and certain.

We don't start calving until mid-May, so we are not having livestock issues that others who calve this time of year are suffering.  

However, DH (Todd) and DS were roping and doctoring a steer last Friday when things went awry and DH parted company with his horse.  THe horse was trying to get him out of a bad situation and in the fracas, they parted ways.  Todd broke every rib on his left side and bruised his lung.  He's doing well (other than going stir crazy from spending so much time in the house) and just needs time to heal.   

Thanks again for checking in.  Hope all is well with you and yours.

Thank you for your kind comment on my crazy quilt! Working on it really helped me as I was coming to terms with the loss of my mother as I knew her. I'm so glad you like it. I've been saving the key for a long time, I just needed the right project for it.

It's just a sample I'm reading so will look to read them in order. Thanks for the information.

Have started reading the Coffin quilt mystery

I make charity baby gifts. After going through the mess most of the extra is stuff given to me by my Aunt, interior designer. I had to move from the basement to the attic-bonus room at the same time losing my eyesight for about six months. Sewing has been much slower. Since I was not to have my head down or could I move anything heavy; my sorting was slow and even more slower on the sewing when I was able to go to work again to help pay the three surgeries on my eyes. I hope I will not have to have another on the right eye, but it may be the only way to see out of it. Going blind is not fun

What beautiful quilts you make.

We must have the same grandmother. Only my grandmother (108) gave her quilts away as soon as she made them, I quilted many of them for her. My mother (89) keeps everything. Does make baby quilts and give them away. She did make two strings quilts this past winter. I think I am cleaning my mess for I am not ready to clean out mom's sewing mess and if I bring any of it home where will I store it?

A new book. Awesome. You have been busy. I'm enjoying a bit of sunshine and warm weather in Florida for a few more days then it's back to winter reality. But spring is on the way and I have lots of quiltsy things to do when I get home. Hope your day I has no bumps in it.

We do have skunks...and porcupines (usually dogs learn early on to steer clear of those), coyotes, bobcats and, thanks to our local Game & Parks, mountain lions.  (No they're not native.  Same with the elk.)  We were sure wishing for a dusting of snow that day so we could have at least tracked her.  No vultures this time of  year, but the crows should alert us to anything dead.  Tell would just like to find her - dead or alive - just so he knows or could figure out what happened.  Not a good mystery to have.  Hope all is well out your way.  Have you had much snow?  We've had bitter cold and wind, but no moisture.

So far, she hasn't been found.  At this point, Tell is certain she's dead, but I'm still holding out hope that she'll make her way home.  (DH) Todd has searched and searched, along with Tell and - amazingly enough - the neighbors as well.  Thanks for caring.  It's been pretty somber around here, but you know these men, they suck it up and take it all in stride.
