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!

She's a Sewing Fool

Believe it or not I actually had someone say that about me lately. Right on. As I write this there are 3 Singer sewing machines still in their boxes staring at me wondering if and when they get to come out and play. I went from having one machine that I treasure and take everywhere I travel to now owning it plus 4 of the same Singer and of course Maxine.


This is Maxine. We are currently quilting this for the daughter Jenn. She has many of my creations. She helped lay this one out and is very anxious for Maxine and me to unleash it and send it her way. She has no real idea what I am doing to it but I suppose I can give her a hint. IMG_0267

Those machines, well long story short, I found one heck of a deal that could not be passed up so I bought all they had, sold one to a friend, have one for Jenn so she can learn to do whatever- like sew patches on her own damn pants for the nth time, one for me to use here and carry around to quilt guild stuff, one for me to take and leave in  Idaho which means my treasured machine can stay home and hopefully live a very long life, and I still don't know what to do with that last one. Maxine is 14 feet long and she stays put, although she has hydraulics so she goes up and down on demand.

Honestly that is not all the machines I now own either but you get the point... I love to sew...

the fool part, well, you will have to decide that one yourself.

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.
