Show Notes 

  • Life Update: It's Mother's Day weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mom's out there. This year I'm not making any plans, and will let what I feel like doing (if anything or nothing) just dictate the day.

    • Casting on the La La Love You Cowl by Sandra Parks using Everlasting Dream in Color yarn in the #704 Grow colorway
    • King Spiderweb quilt (as previously discussed in prior episodes)
    • Peasant style dress for Maddy using Sarah Jane "Children at Play" fabric line
  • What's Making Me Happy in Crafting: Add a Quarter Rulers! Great for paper-piecing, especially when you have a lot of blocks.
  •  Book Reviews:
 Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett

 Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

Thanks for listening!



  1. What a lovely podcast! I listened while quilting some slightly tedious stippling and it made the time fly. Both books sound great and I will add them to my Tanesha recommends list. Maybe Sandy's slow quilting is inspiring a lot of us to stay in "process happiness", as I too, am making a very slow quilt. Have a good, good week.

  2. Love "Extra Yarn". I can't remember who it was, but one podcaster interviewed both the writer and illustrator of this book. I FELL IN LOVE with these two men. They are so charming on the podcast and made me want to read their book simply because of the warmth and genuine sweetness I heard in their interview. Thanks for recommending this book. In the interview, I heard that the story was spawned by one particular illustration done by the artist. The story grew out of that. I thought that was especially sweet. My Grandsons, age 2, both enjoy this book even though I do not knit.
