Pokemon Go 6″ by 6″ Embroidery Designs

People have asked, and I have answered. I just added the 6″ by 6″ Pokemon Go Design set to my Etsy shop! I’ve gotten a few requests for the design set in the sizes I put on bath towels, and I went ahead and made the available for you! And don’t forget to send me pictures of what you are doing with the designs!

FYI – they fit in a 150mm by 150mm hoop, and come in multiple design formats for everyone’s machine!

My Cousin Is Amazing!


I mean, I’ve always known she’s amazing, but I wanted to help get the word out! Last week, a friend and I went to the School of The Art Institute of Chicago’s MFA open studio night. I was astounded by not just my cousin, but the fine company she keeps as contemporaries; I was astounded by her work especially! I just adored the juxtaposition of images against different surfaces, as well as her play on light and dark. As a quilter, I’m always in some way, shape, or form working with light and dark aspects, as that is what really brings a quilt to life. Valerie’s studio was truly amazing! I’m very happy I went, – and for those of you who know me personally, know how much I hate leaving the house- and I’m even happier we’re related. Here’s to you Valerie Xanos – my favorite artist!

Best In Show

I can’t believe it! I won Best In Show at the Indiana Lake County Fair for my quilt “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”. I’m not going to lie, I’m thrilled, and I worked so hard on that quilt. It came at just the right time, because I really needed it. When I submitted this quilt to a different quilt show, they wouldn’t even jury it in. I had put so much time and energy, and by this is by far my best quilt I have made thus far. I was really bummed about that for a couple of weeks, but this totally turned that around. I’m so grateful they liked my quilt. I won in a couple other categories, and I’ll find out everything when I go to the fair this weekend. I’m so happy!!!!
