I've had the pleasure to wander her streets many times.
Kaari Meng at The French General has designed a line of french inspired fabrics for Moda, beautiful rich colors and patterns. She is one talented lady. I'm stitching a quilt with the lumiere de noel collection. Fabric is really my first "love"; it's all about texture and color. Gone are the days when I made countless bed size quilts completely by hand. I now work on a smaller scale and use my trusted friend Bernina to piece and occasionally machine quilt. When completed this quilt will be just the right size for cuddling this winter.
I live a dual existence..a home in a beautiful coastal Rhode Island village...
and an apartment in mid-town Manhattan.
I spend a lot of time traveling back and forth on the train. I do not "sit" well, I am happiest when my hands are busy. Lucky me, I've usually got some project underway but for train travel, it must be small and not messy. Happy day I found Rebecca Ringquist's Drop Cloth Samplers and have been stitching my way back and forth from Rhode Island to New York!
On today's journey I will begin her next offering..the cake sampler. Interested?
