It is so hard

I find inspiration all around me. You may not know, but my husband and I own and operate a small farm here in Northern Vermont.

There are so many things that I find I would love to incorporate and share in my quilting.

  • There are geese flying overhead on a cool (cold) fall morning.
  • Cows mooing in the pasture.
  • Cats meowing and rubbing on my legs
  • Flowers in bloom.
  • Bright orange pumpkins.
  • Juicy red berries.
  • Buzzy Bees.
  • A Yappy, jumpy beagle pup wanting a walk.
  • Crisp red and green apples.
  • Crunchy corn stalks.
  • Roosters crowing and hens cackling.
  • Red and Yellow and Orange and Brown leaves on the trees.

It just goes on and on. There is so much to see and hear and smell and feel. How do you put all that joy into cloth and thread? I am not sure, but I am going to try.

The hard part is deciding on ONE project to work on. I need about 10 100 of me to do it all.

I guess one finished project that I can share with everyone is better than 40 unfinished ones…

Happy Sewing


Hi everyone!

This blog is going to be about Quilting! 

I realize that as a first blog NO ONE is going to read this. I need to begin somewhere and maybe someone will read it later down the road.

My name is Michelle.

I am

  • a Christian
  • a Wife
  • a Mom
  • a Grandma
  • a Quilter
  • a Farmer’s Wife
  • a Hard Working Vermonter


There is a lot more to me, but I realize you don’t have all day and I just want you to know that I will mostly be sharing my quilting adventures. All that Quilty Stuff!

I am creating this blog so that….

We can encourage one another

I can share my WIPs (works in progress)

Get motivated to finish those UFOs (unfinished objects)

Get inspired by what you share with me.

Maybe show you something new or inspire you to try something new.

Who knows what else. Let the fun begin.


Anyway that is enough for today.

Happy Quilting,
