Lecture ahead –

I did my PSA for bicycle helmets on facebook last night but I thought I would add it here as well…

I took a  bad fall off my bike last night…I hit the road hard. Lots of road rash, bruising, strained muscles and a mangled thumb. My head hit the asphalt. Hard.

I really hate wearing a helmet. I hate the way it feels, looks and what it does to my hair.That said, if I hadn’t been wearing my helmet last night I might not be home checking out blog posts today. I hit that hard.

WEAR YOUR HELMET. Every time you get on your bike. Just wear it.

I am going to be a very colorful girl for the next several days, but I earned my road rash badge. And no permanent damage.

We had another tiny earthquake here in West Michigan…very strange. Tornado warnings. Got it. Blizzards. Yep. But earthquakes? Even tiny ones are just strange to those of us in Michigan.

I also got my sister’s snowman wall hanging quilt quilted and half bound…just gotta turn that binding and it’s done :-)


Quite a battle for best piecing and pressing going on in the studio over the last couple of days!
