  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

dreams of sunshine

The latest version of my Dream On charm squares quilt is going well.  I think the latest colors for the solid stripes are a much better fit.  I liked the gray sashing a lot, but switched to yellow just because it was a little sunnier.  I think the gray looked more contemporary, but I just couldn’t resist the yellow!  Nic says it ‘looks like spring,’ which is pretty typical of me–always working on the wrong project at the wrong season!

Jolene - Oooo. Show me more. I’m loving it!

Mary - Just started following but I am afraid you are going to turn me into a scrap hoarder…I love the way you are doing your “thread painting” with the tiniest scraps of fabric for accent. Beautiful stuff.
