This past December a long-time internet friend’s sweet, great-grandbaby girl passed away.  Even though I never met sweet Violet and never held her in my arms, the final days of her life touched my heart.  Her family’s loss transcended the limits of geography.  I could not imagine the depth of their sorrow and pain.

A month or so ago two crazy quilting friends and I committed to a three-way heart swap.  The hearts I made are completed and delivered.  The yellow one was made especially for Stephanie.  The blue one was equally  especially made for Cris.  Making them was a pleasure…they’ve been well received by both ladies.  Each heart is […]

This morning I finished embellishing the blue heart I made for the Crazy Quilting for Newbies swap.  One of my daughters saw it, and asked why I put spiders on EVERYTHING?  Which I don’t.  But I told her spider webs were a symbol of good luck on Victorian crazy quilts.  Since these heart-shaped quilt blocks […]

There is a snowball fight at Crazy Quilting International, and living in Southeast Mississippi, the only way I’m likely to see a snowball is to join in this friendly swap.  A couple or so weeks ago I received this snowball from Hollie.  I neglected to post a picture of it when it first arrived, so […]
