Mama, she’s crazy

miscellaneous yarn

As a kid, I remember my grandmother and mother using material remnants to make Crazy Quilts. Never ones to throw away perfectly good fabric, they would create blankets with no recognizable blueprint.

My first unsupervised sewing project was to deconstruct several pair of old jeans, and piece together a pillow cover. I think I still have that pillow somewhere

Nowadays, I crochet more than I sew. I have an overabundance of miscellaneous yarn left over from other projects, but not enough of one color to make anything usable. Together though, all of those partial skeins will make a bricolage afghan.

The 100 Word Challenge is to tell a story in only 100 words. This week’s theme is “Quilt”

Author: Tara R.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. My mother and I were at an auction recently, when they started auctioning off a bunch of crazy quilts. My mother, who is a stickler for symmetry in color and form, was aghast at some of the designs. I was sitting there thinking about the labor and love that went into them, even though they’re not my “thing”. To each their crazy own. 🙂
