Teacher of the yearRed Quilt


Creating beauty that can be looked upon and enjoyed for years and years to come…yes…Blissful~

I wanted to share my long-time friend Debbie Maddys beautiful art of quilting with you. I thought it best to let her explain…so here it is…please visit Debbie on FB, friend her if you are so inclined…and get to know the lovely work she turns out.


This is a red and white quilt made with my Hunters Star Simplified pattern. My patterns are based on my “No Diamonds No “Y” Seams” technique. Everything is made with half square triangles and squares, no bias edge diamonds. My patterns are on my website


You don’t always see the frogs at Sage Hill…but when you do…they are dressed and ready to rock the day!!

My friend Jonas shared a lovely frog post last night and started my wheels turning…I see a “frog” project taking shape.

Stay tuned…there are frogs and there are toads…however, they all croak the same!

For my friends in the UK that is a quaint little shop at E7 Number 8 in Forest Gate. My good friend and extended family members Andie and Jeff are the proprietor’s-talented, fun, and always ready to help you find the perfect gift…for someone else or for self….

I bet you could even get a cup of tea while you shop 🙂

Enjoy and take care of the Heart…in all ways.

That is Bliss in action~

St.Valentine’s Day is on the way and that too…works well with Red and Bliss…going to be a fabulous February my friends…yes it is !

There is no one size fits everybody with Heart-Health…so, do your homework, define your needs and make a plan.

One thing that does work for us all is healthy eating and good movement…that can and so often is…half the battle to being well. Oh…and laughter…really, really is a good thing ~ and hugs ~ don’t forget the hugs!

The photo is beautiful, inviting, and healthy…strawberries…sun-dried…no sugar added, naturally sweet and delicious.  How is that for a heart-healthy- do ?
