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!

Sew, it seams to be the theme of the week

Last Sunday my  Sister-in-law Elsie was in a nasty accident on her way to church. The roads were not bad when she left but freezing rain began to fall right as she got to the most dangerous part of her trip. She was taken to the hospital in great pain. I decided that I needed to make a quilt for her to cheer her up.

Elsie returned home Friday after having stress fractures in her spine being glued together. My Hubby told her that they use Gorilla glue because we are all descendants ...

Anyway, Elsie teared up when I presented her with this quilt. This is the 4th quilt I have done on Maxine, my new APQS long arm. Not bad.

I also made pillowcases for my quilt guild, the Tri-County Quilters Guild. Between the 20ish members we made 112 pillowcases to be donated to our local Children's Hospital.

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.
