warm homespun greetings

Hello, you, beautiful you! With an enhanced sense of life’s joys—big and small— we welcome the new year with open arms and hearts full of hope. Sure, 2020 was challenging and left us all mentally scraped and bruised in so many ways, but still there was inspiration and hope. Everyone pitched in to make things better, either as essential workers or to support the essential workers and loved ones. Of course, stitchers around the world did their part to make masks, deliver supplies, lend an ear, hold a hand, and sometimes to simply break down and cry with someone. We lost Mom last year to dementia, but got to spend several months of quality time with her and Dad. In this issue we ask you to indulge us with a special version…

“We wanted a home that reflects the heritage of Old Mission Peninsula,” said Rick Laney, one of our hosts for this issue’s photo shoot, referring to the cherry orchards and vineyards that fill this area of northern Michigan. And, as an architectural designer, he was able to make it happen. The beautiful farmhouse, built in 2015, is he and his partner Gary Willyerd’s second home, and was built to host all 22 of Gary’s family members at one time. While the finishes are beautiful, they were chosen to withstand the inevitable wear that visiting family and friends can bring. Their love of family is evident throughout the house. Rick’s mother Dora was an artist and the home is filled with her works, creating an intimate and meaningful coziness. He also loves to…

tada! notes from our readers

GOODIES BAG I usually make a project from each issue of your magazine. I work on them at quilt retreats and fellow quilters always ask for the subscription card from my magazine! This is my take of the Pumpkin Bag from the Fall 2020 issue. I referenced the crazy quilt directions from Snippets of Fall in the same issue to replace the house block. I love this bag so much. It’s the perfect size to fill with apples and other goodies from my local farmer’s market. Thanks for the inspiration you provide! —Ellen Eveland RUG TO WOOL This is my version of Tonya Robey’s Spirit of the Season, which was published in the Fall 2014 edition of your wonderful magazine. I’m not a rug hooker, at least not yet, but I really liked the…

in memory of mom

This Ask Mom is different. Our sweet, special loving Mom—the original “Ask Mom”—passed away in October. We loved her dearly and really miss her. She was a special soul, and made this world a better—and more fun—place. We decided to skip the question-and-answer format this time and instead share some of our “Mom” stitching stories with you. We hope this provides a tiny glimpse into the amazing mother, seamstress, and human being she was. JENI Mom made outfits for our Skipper dolls, with tiny snaps and hook-n-eyes, fitted waistbands, and pleated skirts. She even knitted little Fair Aisle sweaters. On Christmas Eve she’d stay up late to affix the outfits (with matching Skipper shoes) on cardboard, then wrap them in cellophane, creating a polished “storebought” look. When I was in high school, Mom made…
