I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

A Good Book

This Christmas I gave 4 of my good friends this book- "All I Did Was Listen" by Rachel Awes. I won't say it was earth shattering or changed my life in any way, but it is a wonderful book. I am not getting paid by Ms Awes to promote her book, nor do I have a give away. I just wanted to share something that I really enjoyed.

Here is the introduction (from Rachel's blog):

And another couple of sharings with her funky artwork:


Anyways, not much of a post, but I wanted to share this wonderful book with you all. Now back to work for me!


  1. "not much of a post" - you're kidding, right? Thank you so much for posting this today. It is meaningful to me - especially the counting your blessings girls at the end...the one with her arms raised. :) Blessings for the day.

  2. The book sounds wonderful. I have ordered it. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. That is 'much of a post'. : ) Art and happiness come from inside. We need these things as soul food. It's just as important as having perfect thread tension. lol

  4. "speak the truth even if your voice shakes" ... wow ! Love that quote ! I will definitely read her blog. Thanks
