  1. Your talent knows no bounds. And you have endless energy. I love it all !
    Am kinda partial to the cute pjs that Viola is modeling. And the darling head wrap. You’re amazing.
    Happy 2014 !

  2. So fun, Are you kidding-we have one hair wrap and Chase adores it-the synchro gal Can you PLEASE teach her how to make this?

  3. Wow, Alethea. You are sooo clever and you make such fun things! Thanks for sharing the photos. Every time I see some new mustache thing I think of you. At Christmas time, it was the t-shirts with a mustache that said “stashing through the snow.” I loved the variety of wreaths that you made. Happy Birthday! (Mine is in December, too.) I hope you make it back to Redding this year.

  4. Love your posts and inspiration you always provide. So enjoyed your workshop in Sisters last July. Moving in fits and spurts to finish bells and whistles but it is always a bright spot in the studio, encouraging creative thinking towards the next step. Hoping you’ll be in the Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia area sometime soon teaching a class or two! Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Doris! So nice to hear from you. I can’t wait to see your Terrie Mangat Bells and Whistles Quilt! I’m so glad that it is still bringing you creative joy!
      I’m working close to home right now, but I’ll let you know when I’m coming up your way.
      Stay in touch!
      Alethea
