Adventures of a Novelty Fabric and Selvage Obsessed Quilter

Glad you stopped by!

I am a busy wife and the mom of 19 year old twins, a boy and a girl who are Sophomores at Syracuse University.

I have been quilting since the spring of 2008. I love novelty fabrics, colorful and unique.

Selvage quilting is addictive! Who knew the "junk" we cut off and threw out would be what I now save! I started a new tradition when I travel--visiting quilt stores! I particularly enjoy going to stores that have been named in the Quilt Sampler Featured Shop Lists-

Blinded by the Light- NOT

3:00 this morning, the floor lamp
in our family crashed to the ground,
and broke into a million pieces.
A quick trip to Home Depot
was unsuccessful.
2 hours later on the internet,
and a replacemant is on its way!

While I was shopping,
I finally ordered lighting for my sewing studio!


But wait, there's more!
The ceiling light in our hallway
needed a lightbulb.
Marc took off the cover,
and while we were out,
we picked up a new bulb.

We got home, and he went
to install the bulb.
He promptly discovered a piece
had broken in the fixture.

Off to Home Depot tomorrow
for a replacement fixture!

Hopefully, three is the charm!!


  1. Oh grrrr!!! It sounds like it is not off to a "bright" new year for you.

  2. Love your new lamp! Why does it seem like any type of project or replacement requires more than 1 trip to the home improvement store? I need more lighting for my quilting area too!


I love comments! Please make sure I have a way to contact you!
