it appears that summer has found us. the heat of the sun and the happy relief of shade. and scattered around our yard are cats. edgar oversees from the porch, but it's the lounging of the cats that gives laziness to the day. i sewed on the studio porch all afternoon watching their slow sleepy summer ways. and then we ended the day playing horseshoes and welcoming my parents home from their two month sojourn south.
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
