quilts, treadle sewing machines, crochet, watercolor, dogs, & other fun stuff

Mission Statement (of sorts)

Though most of my crafting energy is presently diverted into polymer clay, I am also interested in a variety of other crafts. Sewing, quilting, and needle & thread crafts in general are high on that list.

I began my polymer clay blog so I’d have a place to chatter about polymer clay without totally alienating the readers of my “regular” (personal) blog. (You can only expect non-clayers to look at so many photos before they abandon ship.) Now that I’m planning to delve more frequently into the world of sewing, I figured I might as well start a new blog for that, too!

This blog is a place where I plan to share photos of my sewing-related efforts– stories of my trials and tribulations with the sewing machine– links to fun, useful or just generally “neat” stuff I find elsewhere on the Internet– and (with luck) the occasional tutorial.

This will be my digital scrapbook and safeguard against my faulty memory (“Where did I find that page with the pretty stripped rag quilt?!”, etc.), but I hope it can also serve as a help and entertainment for others with similar interests.

Please feel free to leave comments and questions. I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, but I’m happy to offer assistance when I can!


I’m Michael (a female Michael, to remove any doubt).  I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast with my husband, Donald, and our crazy American Eskimo Dogs. 

I love to fill my spare time with various crafts and other hobbies, and this blog is where I share photos, record my progress, and ramble endlessly.
