i could help you with #14 on your list, I make at least 3 quilts a week, can't stop sewing. I started quilting because I was painting on fabric and wondering what to do with each piece of fabric I was painting so I added more fabric and turned them into quilts.Donated almost all the painted fabric quilts to a good cause to raise money to save the lives of young girls in another country who were unfortunately being abused. Now my stash of quilts is growing for some unknown reason which may become clear to me at a later time. I will share.There is always room for one more quilt, each one unique and thoughtfully special.

i will be 32 in 5 days...wait...it's after midnight so make that 4 DAYS!
i think i am going to make a list leading up to 33.
if all you ladies can do it so can i!


I just turned... 49... ick... but.. I am alive. You have inspired me to make a '49 things I need to do before... 50' list. Oh where do I begin? So much of what I want is NOT here... I am stuck in the middle of Montana... and yearn for Oregon. Maybe one of my things on my list should be MOVE...
Love your blog....


I can not wait to do this! I love it!

I have included it in my weekly "Gathering Inspiration and Gratitude" post.

Thank you for inspiring me!

I absolutely love the colors in your artwork, so vivid and full of life, they inspire me! Love your list of 37 things to do, need to start my own, having the list right in front of you, in the form of a journal page, makes it easier to visualize what needs conquering. Have fun doing all 37!
