Needles and a Pen bio picture
  • 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!


I love ripping out pages from Pottery Barn catalogs as inspiration for future quilts (especially the kids stuff–they have such adorable applique quilts).  I love this color combo:

Kelly Henry - Traci–Super excited about this blog! Thanks for the props on the Star Trek quilt…still one of my proudest accomplishments! I’ll call you tomorrow and ask me about my new co-workers and what they think about my love of Star Trek. Love you and can’t wait to see what you do!

Susanne - I love this color combination too!
