Oh, yes, I did just swoon about my own stitching. A good touch of the vapors. Safe holiday travels, everyone! xoxo

Someone asked what I use for quilting.

On the backside, for the cheeky monkeys. There’s a vast amount of work to do. I may be overestimating my chances of making a deadline. Nevertheless...onward!

I was thrilled with @ccpquilt’s machine quilting on this but I have to see my hand in my quilts. So...it’s a sickness. But it looks and feels even better.

Waiting for the last flight home, I’m granny-squaring acrylic. Yup.

Sewing small with @charlestonmodernquiltguild today. They kept me jittering with sweet tea and a flight of sweet sake. In between there was a ton of tiny fun. Thanks, folks! (Swipe to see more.)

Crafturdaying. Or prepping for travel crafting. Or both?

Hotel handquilting. The projects travel with me always, in their own carryon bag. Every possible stolen moment. Even just a few stitches before dinner...

Passing over the Rockies on the way to the other coast for job-job. Swipe to see the “lunch” they served. Ahem. Glad I ate back at the airport. Cheers!

I live with my face all up in this quilting now. Hoping to finish at record pace.

Started hand quilting. Things got dense quickly. And now the rest is blindingly black-on-black stitching. Send light. 💡

Power lunch fueling some tough writing today. At Quilt Camp in Maine this was called “chip salad” 🥗 by the originators @blathermagather and @lucyvailofficial. Salty and crunchy heaven.

A beautiful day to land in the swamp.

Fresh back from the longarmer @ccpquilt. I’m way too excited about this squished pineapple boondoggle. 😜 🍍

That feeling when you have to keep re-stocking black fabrics because the injustice will never end.

On Crafturday we work out our problems using fiber.

Happy National Coffee Day! Here's my new mug gotten to commemorate an incident this past summer when a colleague let me know I wasn't showing proper deference to him as a white person. Yep, in 2017. Same thing was happening with #TakeAKnee this past week. But, yay, coffee!

How I left things...also a look at the backside for the cheeky monkeys. More cotton and silk play-and-fray.

So it seems there's a 5-page spread on my work in Quilting Arts (Oct/Nov 2017). I finally got a peek this weekend. I feel honored to be included in this issue that features many activist quilts and artists.
