Hi. My name is Peg and this is my blog about being a mom and an artist. I painted for many years but these days find quilting and sewing a better fit as a creative outlet for my life with toddlers.

Things I love: my family (husband and two little boys), fabric, quilting, food – especially bread and chocolate.

Things I don’t like: loud noises, guacamole, snakes and spiders.

Things I’m good at: I’m an excellent driver and I make amazing chocolate chip cookies.

Things I’m really bad at: video games and singing (my husband says my voice is like that of a sweet little bird being hit by a truck).

Hope you enjoy your stay here. Thanks for reading. Email me if you like, I’d love to hear from you.

    Hi, found your blog through my frind Melynn’s blog. That’s my turtle in the turtle house.
    I love fabric too. Don’t do much sewing these days, wish I did more. Would like to know where you’re located.
    I love plants, as Melynn can tell you. One of the cool things I’ve done with them over the years is to dye fabric and yarn. You can get the most beautiful colors from plants and natural dyes, and it’s one of the ways I still connected with fabric.

    Hello Peg, I found you via Pinterest whilst browsing for some quilt borders/edging ideas. I will link to your page from my blog and be back often for more inspiration. Thanks for a lovely visit!

    Would you email me the directions for this ribbon quilt border. It is so cute and I would love to put it on a bargello quilt I will be making in a July class at my local quilt shop. Thanks. Sue Oldham
