<a href="https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/16135519/?claim=y97fa4yr5w3">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> I'm a bit sensitive. I don't want to be, it's how I'm made. I long to embrace this sensitivity for the gift that it is. It's changed, grown, matured? over time. Still causing trouble when my face decides to show things swirling below. I'm also candid which is oh … Continue reading Like Many Quilters
Not all are called to be artists in the specific sense of the term. Yet, as Genesis has it, all men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life: in a certain sense, they are to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece. It is important to recognize the … Continue reading 40 Days of Prayer for Quilters – Day 5
On this day celebrating the beauty and grace of womanhood I share with you Muliaris Dignatatem, On the Dignity and Vocation of Women. Reading this shifted my understanding of what I perceived as the Church's view on women, and how I as a woman offer beauty, grace, femininity, and while not a mother in the, … Continue reading Nurturing

Caralyn of Beauty Beyond Bones linked to this podcast by Fr. Mike Schmitz. I wept. Like Caralyn, I'm at a loss for words to adequately describe the homily, it's perfect for today as in our Catholic/Christian tradition this is the Day. Good Friday. There are so many quilterly things jumbling for attention - my own … Continue reading Signed, Teri

Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew. St Francis de Sales When I … Continue reading It is a good day to begin again
Oh Lord, please allow me to be open to your Grace this Lent, and in this season of life. I am grateful for the challenges. I long to be Your faithful daughter. Teri
As the words start spilling from the heart to the page, a memory from several years ago keeps coming to mind. My Sweetie and I were on a ministry related trip with some of the guys we worked with, when we stopped for dinner. As a larger group (about 17) a few tables needed rearranging. … Continue reading Who from Scripture do I want to have dinner with?
I've been honest about living in the desert at times over the last few years. The desert is, as Jesus exemplifies, a holy place. It is a place where we are closest to God. A place where we are most vulnerable. A place of honesty, integrity. A place where through the dryness we are given … Continue reading If the desert is holy; a quilt show is an oasis
