Hello Everyone,
These are difficult times for all of us now.  There is not much right now that is within our control, but there are a few things that we can control.  One of them is kindness, generosity, and love.  When a friend of mine who is a Nurse Practitioner told me that her unit needed masks, I said I was in!  She does not work in a hospital, but a unit that could use them.

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you are enjoying hopping from designer to designer!! It has been an active week here.  The hop, the sale, and now I am busy making masks for my friend's unit at the hospital.  I will be doing a tutorial on them on my Watch Me Wednesday on my Canton Village Quilt Works FB page at 1:30MT if you would like to join me.

Hello Everyone,
I can't really believe I haven't blogged since April, 2019!  First off, let me apologize.  That is not something that I had intended to do.  If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you will know just how busy I have been.
So many fabric collections that I have launched, lectures given, workshops taught, Watch Me Wednesdays (on FB), and lots of sewing going on.  
But the newest and BIGGEST venture so far is my newest online class.  Since last July, 2019 this class was in the works.  My friend, Lisa, flew out here to AZ to help me film the class.  Once it was complete, I began the long process of editing the videos to bring to you.

Hi Everyone,

Today is my day on the blog hop and I wanted to tell you a little bit about my relationship with my very creative and talented friends, Marie Bostwick and Deb Tucker.  This is our second collaboration between the three of us and Island Batik and Aurifil Thread.  I have know both these ladies for about 10 years or so.  And it is truly a pleasure to work with them in this industry.  Marie is a fabulous author and Deb an extremely talented designer.  Most of you know what I do.... So I won't bore you with the details.

Hello Everyone,

So this is the last of my posts for the Creative Spaces Blog hop!  This is week number 6!  Can you believe it?  I hope you have gained some inspiration throughout the past 6 weeks.  Maybe some new tips and tricks too!

This week is all about the rulers.  I have to tell you that I am actually away in Florida at the moment while I am writing this post.  And I have to tell you I am reusing a few pics.... So my apologies.  But hopefully what I have to say will help overshadow the twice used pics...LOL!!!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome into Week 5 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today, I will talk about thread and other sundries that you may find in my studio.  More specifically, how I deal with it all.  You probably remember from my studio tour that I have a long arm. For my long arm, I really need thread on cones.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today, I get to talk to you about how I store my fabric.  And let me tell you that is a loaded question. Partly because I have quite a bit of fabric.  Hmmm... but don't we all.  As you saw in last week's post, there is a whole closet dedicated to my fabric storage and I will talk about that.
