Working on the flight to LAX— somewhere over Arkansas. Swipe to see the in-flight lunch of bulgogi (Korean beef), jasmine rice, veggies, salad, (non-sequitur) tiramisu, and an adult beverage. Watching ‘Three Billboards...’ while severe turbulence rocks our world.

I found @nightquilter at the ATL airport on the way to #QuiltCon2018.

A tidy box is a healthy box.

I’d enjoy this frosted scene more if i didn’t have to get out there and shovel my car out. Doing it before coffee so there’s a reward at the end. Just don’t talk to me if you see me outside now. I can only muster expressive grunts.

Going grey on Crafturday. 😬

Maybe TMI? Sometimes I like to get all up in the textiles and contemplate a smooch.

So late to this party but it just arrived. Lots of denim and bits of everything else. Makes me want to play more.

Headed home. An extremely brief but deeply intense trip. The sewing was my anchor. Also? Please ignore the abused banana I just found in the bottom of my book bag. 🍌

Big thanks to @aleedac for this shot last night at Philly MQG of me with two of my favorite quilters, @slbphilly and @latifahsaafirstudios!

Yes, cork. Seemed to have confused some folks yesterday. The combo of cork, heavyweight denim, and thick paper are testing my unconscious and apparently uncontrollable tendency to sew small pieces. I've definitely decided I need to go bigger for the overall design though. Send cookies. (Second photo for scale.)

It’s always interesting to see how the fabric pull (yesterday’s image) shakes out as construction begins. Paper, cork, denim, and corduroy orgy going on.

In the fiction stacks, dodging moving bookcases and escaping my RealJob work-work.

It’s the best feeling when your blanket-in-progress starts to be big enough to also be cozy. This is where I’d rather be today.

Me and my shadow at dusk. They put my name on the thingy! Swipe for a glimpse inside. (There are 12 hanging.) Thanks @kellysuperneato!!

LED. Or a meditation in black and white with speckles.

Airplane crochet. Hoping to finish this blanket for the mother for next Xmas.

Crochet with acrylic in my pattern requires scissors. On the plane I’m worrying about dropping and losing them so I tethered them to a belt loop. Also anxious about dropping and losing the hook but not sure if there’s as simple of a fix for that. See ya on the East side!

I’ve 12 quilts exhibiting through Feb. please stop by if you’re in the area.

Between RealJob work-work stuff on the plane, I’m working on this smaller practice swatch. It’s so I can eventually work out the quilting stitching sitch before doing it on the bigger practice piece I’ve been flashing at ya for the past month.

Working my way down to the bottom edge now...

This is getting huge. Wish I had more time. xoxo

The best part of handwork is the sustained tactile experience. And with appliqué or embroidery I also get captivated by the creation of texture and terrain. Fuzzy terrain. Getting faster at stitching but less time to stitch so slowing down overall, I hope to finish lettering by the end of the month. Then? HANDQUILTING!! 😜

As I hope to proceed. Happy 2018, friends! ❤️🙋🏽‍♀️
