blairs Here is a swatch card that gives an idea of the color removal process I used for the prints in the Hammerhead Quilt. It's so fun to try (no bleach!) and works like a charm. 1w

blairs I'm now referring to this quilt as my experimental quilt. So many new things I'm trying for the first time in it. Free motioning vines around the square, basting with water soluble thread, and hand applique. #neverstopplaying #quilt PS- thank you all for the kind words on my earlier pic, means alot! xo 2w

blairs On my blog today, I talk about how through trial and error, I have added exercise into my daily routine. It was not easy, but I reached a point where I was preoccupied and extremely unhappy in my own skin, and I felt I had no choice. If I can make this change, we all can! It's worth it!

  •   villany1 Nice job. I started running in 2009 after Andrew was born, supported by the encouragement of people like Russ McGarry, Ann McGarry and Ann Kathrin Koch during our Flickr days. It changed my life and I've never looked back. It feels great, and skinny jeans feel even better! 2w
  •   sfunkecrary I feel a little bit like a stalker- making just about everything from your fab new book, and now mimicking your workout routine. Great inspiration all around! 2w
