the simplest little things make me happy. i've been enjoying embroidering words. while we watch tv. or when i'm visiting with friends. or tired and restless and need to re-focus. that's when i reach for my little drawstring bag of round frames. with a box of colored silk. and linen. i feel a little grandmotherly. that's a good thing. i like touching my wise and relaxed and gentle side.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
