Greetings from the Late Bloomer!

I thought it would be appropriate to begin with an actual "late bloom"...this little begonia was doing its thing underneath a pile of dead leaves and a vicious rose bush in my front yard.

As for me, I spend way more time than can possibly be healthy doing my thing under piles of fabric. And dust. And assorted household pet hair.

I'm not a photographer. While I wish I could stage wonderfully inspiring vignettes, that's just not me. Since all our lives have beautiful bits in them, hopefully there will be some pretty pictures every once in awhile.

Here's a photo of a tiny part of my work area. The polka dot mug is a shout out to my pal Pam No, it's not some rich, robust freshly brewed java--it's a cup of Coke Zero--whose caffeine and chemically charged goodness keeps me going.

Speaking of...there are piles of fabric waiting to be turned into squares, triangles, and posies and such, so until next time!

Congrats on starting your very own blog. Now you can spend way more time than you should reading & posting, instead of quilting! Can't wait for your new book to come out.
