Hello Goodbye and No Apologies

Look at my new Machine/Eye Candy/ Decor - Im gonna clean it and put it on a shelf. I took this photo as an idea for a new header. Its a cutie, it works and it was 12.99... Thank You Bargainia - She is the Goddess of the good deal and I will be burning incense lit with the flame from expired coupons to her later. 

An Era is over, we are now no longer sewing at the Mandatory Hotel. Our leader ( the headless lady in the center) gave our last 20+ quilts to Sunrise Church and their warming station.


Inspiration: where does it come from? Well here are 2 photos of mine. A Ben Sherman Shirt I have in my stash ( I got it from the bins) and this screen capture from SNL. I'll be working on a simple Sketch of an idea for later - Im gonna practice quilt it.


 Here's another quilt top I made with parts from this quilt. Sorry the pic is lousy..

 the centers are all hand appliqued - I just love how a bit of quality handwork makes a project so much better...
Quilters Rock!

OK there has been more of the same old drama going on... the Queen Bees and WannaBees are hard at work trying to give the gift of Self Doubt, and exploit your sense of social shame. Don't let them do it..
Stay strong! Reach out to folks to have your back and want to celebrate your creativity and uniqueness.
below is my remarks, about my experience, yes they are harsh but so was the experience .. it sucked to have my feelings hurt and be treated as though I needed to explain myself and my artistic process.

Normally I don't respond to this crap but the professional consensus is that this is the correct approach.
So read no further unless your interested: 

This is what I posted to someone who had experienced this persons cruelty. I stand by my remarks and I wrote that this was my experience. If its not yours, great. Women get bullied in a different style than men, much more passive aggressive. I wanted the woman who was now a target of this kind of Social, Relational Aggression (as I had been) to know she wasn't alone.
You're not to blame, time to move on. Support Sister; Ignore the Bitch!
"Hi- I know the person who did this to you in real life. I sure wish you wouldn't blame The *** and direct your anger at the person.
My experience with the person is that she is cruel, unkind and goes out of her way to put people down. She made my friend cry. SHe has pulled me aside at nearly every event and said some unkind thing like
"dont you EVER finish anything?" "well, your not really Modern at all" {edit: I now avoid her: problem solved}
She actually snapped her fingers in my face,screamed "Give it to me, give it to me, right now!" and snatched an object out of my hands.  ( I was with another lady we were tutoring someone on the Ipad, this was not done to me alone)
I volunteered at a quilt show, she walked right up to me in public and in a loud rude voice " What do you think you are doing?"

I have had to stop talking to her, stop following at any level. She can be very nice and friendly to people she perceives as her equals/betters(altho she talks behind their backs with the same cruelty/pettiness she says to our faces). But its been my experience that she goes out of her way to be mean to SOME people.
I looked at your blog a bit and like me, your an Artist who quilts. like the lady who cried: also an Artist. Hmm I see a pattern here..
Im following you now.. and I'll check out your facebook page...
Anybody she has been cruel to must be a creative genius with a heart of gold ... :) just like me:)"
This post is 6 months old, I cannot for the life of me figure out why people are still interested in this.
whoever sent you sent here is making more of this than it is.. ... I've moved on.  I'm often in the same room with this person and we have lots of common acquaintances - its over, nothing to see here, move along.
