I Wish I Could Share What I Am Working On!

I really want to share pictures of what I am working on, but I can’t. I am participating in a Round Robin with 5 other quilters. We are each not allowed to see the progress on our own quilt top until “The Big Reveal”, which will be in about 2 months. So I can not …

I love looking at photos of work spaces of other stitchers, quilters and crafters. Seeing the reality of these work spaces makes me feel better about mine (not only the projects that I have covering many of the work spaces, but the amount of stuff that I have accumulated to produce those projects).  Plus, I …
