I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

Still On the Road Again

Sleep after toil, port after stormy seas, ease after war, death after life does greatly please.
Edmund Spenser, 1590

It feels like forever since I have actually been in small town Western PA. I spent 3 weeks in Idaho with a short stop over to do laundry and stock the fridge. I then went with Jenn to the Boston area to pick up the rest of her life and meet some of those people she calls special. We were back in PA 24 hours and then left for a quilt show in Chicago. I am still here in this chilly and windy city dreaming of warshing the kitchen floor and the piles of dirty clothes. To sleep in my own bed and curl up with my kitty will be grand.

I am helping a friend who has a quilt booth here. The traffic through the show has been sad and I think most vendors have lost money this trip. The quilts are awesome-it is an international show and it is fun to see how quilters across the globe create. This is a great place to find inspiration and I will be returning with lots of that. Perhaps my life will slow enough now and I can begin that process of creating again. I am beginning to seriously miss using my sewing machine so it must be time to become one with it again.

I will leave you with a couple of my favorite quilts from the show. One very old and one very new.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
