this week i've been sewing on the back porch of my studio, in the shade of a huge maple tree, looking out over our yard and our porch where edgar and the cats are sleeping or just flopping in the shade. the heat has been extreme, but there is always a little breeze from the lake. the light is dappled and changing from the movement of the leaves. a real summer. i'm building quilts this week. square by square. and on the weekend i'll get them photographed and listed on etsy. i am happy to be back. happy to be finding my groove again.
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
