Quilting and a road trip.

I took a couple of days off this past week for a road trip to visit my daughter. Yay!

But I did get some quilting done –

Janice’s baby quilt – digital design Cloudy Day – Hobbs 80/20 batt and Omni thread


And Dorothy’s scrappy quilt – digital design Malachite – MM cotton batt and Omni thread in med. gray.


I am working extra hard because I will be out of the studio for a few days this month and have a full slate of quilts scheduled.

I know a lot of people who are proud that they do not pay attention to politics. I know even more people who think that the person sitting in the White House hundreds or maybe thousands of miles away doesn’t affect them. So I felt it was important to share this article from the Craft Industry Alliance –


I also received a letter from Joann Fabrics last week which unfortunately I did not save. Here is an article in Bloomberg about it –


If you do not care for Bloomberg you can google Joann Fabrics and Tariffs and there are plenty of other news sources with similar articles.
