In regard to photos. If you like my photos I am flattered. Feel totally free to right hand click and save for later viewing. You may even like to drop me a line and tell me what you like, I love that. If however, you are going to tell the world this is your work or utilize my photos for a less than noble purpose, then please remember you have only been given one soul...and you should look after it wisely. Tracey Tutorials: I have occasionally given a few of these, they include: 1.Log cabin chooks 2.Using shirring elastic in clothes 3.Houndstooth check blocks-(progress photos and tutorial). 4. My free pieced roses. Drop me an email/link with a picture if you try these, I like to see people's interpretation.
Albert Einstein once said,"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
I try to look at my life like this and I think a blog is fabulous to make you highlight the good things that happen everyday.
I am a 30 something quilter (former Primary teacher) happily at home on the farm- both kids are generally at School so i get some "own" time.
