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.

Hello Everyone,

Today is Day 4 of the blog hop.  We have had some awesome giveaways thus far and some talented individuals involved in the blog hop!  Today you will be visiting, Penni and Kari.  Please tell them I said hello!

Today, I wanted to feature another quilt in my design collection for the Blue Moon Fabric Collection.
