That little silver spot is a nail buried up to its neck in my tire. I am not happy about this turn of events. #girlswhoride

When you have to hem a 20-foot curtain that's already hung. 😂 #sewing

Oh lordy, this is ridiculous. #fabrichoarder #wheredoiputallthisshit

My kind of morning meditation. (You down with #epp? Yeah, you know me.)

For eleven months most of my sewing stash sat in the basement of our house in Portland, but now the 200+ pounds of precuts, yardage, patterns and books is back where it belongs...with me! #wherethehelldoiputthisshit #pdxtolax

My Freewheeling Single Girl quilt is ready to get quilted!!! I'm so stoked to finally have my own quilt... only 25 years after I made my first quilt. 🙄

I got my own view of the #lakedeck with @cherylsleboda this week and I'm super grateful for the Midwest hospitality. ❤️ and an extra shoutout to @sewsupportive for being my twin in so many ways. See you soon! #latergram

I fell asleep on the flight home and was so groggy on arrival that I nearly forgot the carry-on bag of caramel popcorn I stocked up on in Chicago 😳 #homeagainhomeagainjiggityjig

Chicago is the first city that's made me sad to be gluten-free. Chicago-style hotdogs sans buns just aren't the same. 😕#glutenfreebummer
