Back in 2008 I started a little drawing book in which I would only record my coffees. For a couple of years it got buried in a pile of drawing books, but eventually was rescued…it started like this… and home again it became a sort of journal of my travels around town… trips to the […]
I recently read an article that said to have a happy life you need to do something EVERYDAY that makes you happy.

Italy 2014 Part 1: Colle di Val d’Elsa
Our 2014 Italian adventure is complete, and what a trip it was. Though I started posting from “the road,” it became clear there was only enough time and energy to “live in the moment.” There WAS enough time and energy to take a ton of photos though…phew. The first half of the trip was with […]

This is for Bru with thanks….
Quilt Pattern Conundrum
I bought this quilt top in Tennessee…it’s hand pieced, a little funky. It’s a pattern none of us had ever seen before. But last night Nifty emailed me to look on page 78 of Scott Heffley’s book “Bold Improvisations” and sure enough there it is! Phew..time for a coffee
Spring is Here…
I’m taking off for Alabama early tomorrow…a quick turn around the yard today to see if spring is really here…it is! a quick coffee… and something to ponder on my trip…interesting things to do with fruit…see you soon!
