Mom asked for another Dionne Duster Cardigan (which is yet un-made...sorry Mum) and in the order from Nature's Fabric, I added 3 cuts of bamboo stretch fleece to make a second sweatshirt pattern after the successful Hudson Hoodie from the spring.

Hi there, I’m Terri Ann – My background? I’m a constant dabbler in the art of craft. Over the years I have loved photography, quilting, sewing, embroidery, painting, furniture making but above all: coding & technology.

I also love: food, dancing (preferably in lines with boots on) and going on adventures.
This blog? I’ve been blogging on and off since about 2001. Most of my old content is gone for good (trust me, that’s for the best) but this blog is where I like to document things I create or experiences I’ve had. Sometimes I’m slow to update, sometimes I don’t update at all but it’s a work in progress as I am constantly learning and balancing how different things in my life affect my well being and ability to achieve and reflect on the goals in my life. This blog, being a fascinating component of that puzzle.
