Recent Doings

I’m still here. I’ve been back in Bozeman since Wednesday and caught a terrible cold as a parting gift from Tejas. It was to be expected, in fact I’m surprised I haven’t gotten sick sooner, but I really haven’t been sick in the hacking/wheezing way since I left New York. At least, not that I can remember.

I am so excited to be reunited with my Bernina. Paul dropped her off for the birthday cleaning while I was gone and we went and picked her up this weekend. I dove into my scrap pile to start experimenting for an upcoming project, or rather, large undertaking, that I am planning. It was fun to play, and here’s the block I came up with.


Making this spurred me to go through my fabric. All my scraps seem to be too repetitive so I set aside many fat quarter sized pieces to be cut into strips. I almost always quilt improvisationally anyway, and I needed to add new stuff to the mix. I straightened my shelves and thought I was awesome at reducing the amount of crap until I turned around and saw the huge stack of fabric I’d forgotten about on the ironing board. Now my floor looks like this. Oh well. I think I’m going to organize another scrap swap soon– once I am feeling human again. So stay tuned for that.


Otherwise I’ve been working on this lovely Drop Stitch Scarf (free pattern!), which I found on Ravelry to use with my very fun yarn from Hill Country Weavers. I hung out with the Naughty Secretary herself, Jen Perkins, while I was in Austin and she took me to this yarn mecca that I somehow always miss when I visit. I had a hard time deciding on anything but two skeins of this in the sale section made me say, “Yes Please!”. You can read more about the shop on Craftstylish. I had a super great time with Jen, by the way, she took me to some of her favorite thrifts, then we ate mexican food, gossiped and shopped. It was a very welcome escape!


And last but not least, since I’ve been neglecting this blog, I thought I’d introduce you to Paul’s sketchbook blog, in case you’re so inclined. Paul is my boyfriend,  in case you haven’t been paying attention, and he’s been sketching up a storm. He’s drawing every building on Main Street in downtown Bozeman, and the results are pretty amazing. Below is another of his sketches, which he drew from his truck (it’s cold!). Check out more of his work over at Three Letter Word for Art. And please feel free to leave him comments!


p.s. Thank you so much for all of your kind comments about my upcoming book. I am as excited to see it in print as you are!

  • Hey,
    I stumbled upon your blog today. It's so ironic that you live in Bozeman, where my sister just moved from in July. And that you were visiting Austin which is only about an hour's drive from where I live, in San Antonio. My sister is now in Houston. You don't happen to know Ruthie Crosier, do you? I am definately sending her the link to both your blog and your sweetie's blog. Perhaps she can just fondly remember Bozeman (beside the cold weather) as she looks at the drawings. Cool!


  • Jennifer

    I was just wondering if you know where Jen got that "preggo" t-shirt its adorable and I have looked everywhere online and havent' found it. My best friend is pregnant and would love it.

  • Fantastic drawings. I love the thought of sitting in my car sketching whatever is in front of me........well, I live in LA so maybe traffic isn't so interesting.

    I will keep visiting his site.

  • Your sweetie's drawings are wonderful! Even nicer since I drive those streets all the time!

    You said you were in Texas but I didn't know it was Austin. My middle son lives there-moved about 2 1/2 years ago. (girl) I love Austin. Better than Bozeman-at least warmer!

  • Wow, I think I love everything you posted about, especially the block gorgeous colors!
