I found this crazy smock at a consignment shop in Savannah. I half believed I would keep it to wear at home (it *just* fits) but I am actually more likely to transform it into something else, when the right idea comes along. But until then, it lives in my closet, safe from my scissors βœ‚οΈ . @christinericks_ what do you think? #thrifting #neon #crazyvegetables #nothingissafe

I finally set up my new machine with its walking foot to finish off this secret sewing project. Sure enough, it sews like a dream. #straightlinequilting #gettingtoknowyou #meow

My friend Rose loves us so much not only did she bake a traditional paska for Easter, she gave us the leftovers. She is forever and always the best non Ukrainian Ukie cook. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦#gratitude #traditionalfood

Buckwheat block. This hasn't turned exactly as I'd hoped, but it's a decent first shot. #trytryagain #quiltsofinstagram

Wait a minute... maybe it's weird, but this one could get interesting #handdyed #paletteplay #nextinline

The main attraction on my fabric pull tonight. This one's been sketched out and just needs a bit of math before I start to cut. #handdyed

Soundtrack to my childhood. While we didn't live right next to the mushers, being in the neighbourhood next to #kamlake it's obvious when something exciting is happening out there. #northernlife #barkbarkbark #yzf

Beep boop. I always look for these from the air when flying in or out of my hometown. #kamlake #yzf #navigation

This next layer is with silk thread. It is tricky, but gives such a lovely sheen. I'm overgramming this project because it's the only one I am managing to work on lately. πŸ™ƒVerso detail and thread audition follow. #quiltsofinstagram #handquilting #handstitching #slowstitching
