TGIFF: A Saltwater Finish

Do you ever just fall out of love with something? I bought the whole line of Tula Pink’s Saltwater a couple of years ago and it has been tormenting me ever since.

At night, criminals, a cowardly and superstitious lot, call me… Batdog. People think it’s an obsession. A compulsion. As if there were an irresistible impulse to act. It’s never been like that. I chose this life. I … Read More

Well all I can say is that the Fairies must have finished this as I’ve been so busy at work I’ve been barely coherent. So this is going to be a very brief post. This is a quilt that has LURKED. It’s been on my ‘guilt’ list. It was one of the first pieces of fabric I bought online. This … Read More
