It's not often I find defacing public property amusing, but this altered sign at the crosswalk by our local movie theater is inspiring.

My Phone Stinks
No kidding. It really stinks. As in somebody's armpit. Really cuts down on long conversations. I use speakerphone a lot.

By someone who I'm … Continue reading Wired

Check out the subtle black and red striped corded piping in between the twists and the background of this block. Sweet, huh? (Yes, I know these are straight seams, not … Continue reading Piping Hot Twisted Sisters?!
Madison here. Mom's letting me write today's blog since I'm arranging our December 2008 ROAD TRIP. I guess that puts me in the driver's seat. We're heading down I-75 towards Jupiter, Floria starting on December 7th. We'll be stopping at quilt guilds and quilt shops along the way so that Mom can earn gas money and kibble. … Continue reading Road Trip
