Quilts, kids and rock n roll


The fabulous Molli Sparkles has a must-read post up today: No Value Does Not Equal Free. The quilt has an ingenious concept– show the true value of a hand-made quilt. There’s a great discussion in the comments afterward about his calculations and everyone’s interpretation of it. If you have ever made a quilt, or thought about buying one, it’s a good read.

And if you’re in the mood to ogle some great quilts, search the #njmqg hashtag on Instagram for photos from last night’s show and tell.


My older son has never been an enthusiastic artist, but we’ve been trying to turn his love of sea creatures into drawing time. I’m so proud of his picture, which is a colossal squid and two sperm whales. The orange fish is a guppy. The blue one is an x-ray fish. Proud mama right here.

Rock n roll:

I know I’ve posted one HAIM song already, but my husband is coming home momentarily from a week out of town for work and this one makes me think of him.

Have a great weekend!
