Testing …

Hello Ragmates!

It's been a while. The world has changed again..

As usual, nothing has gone as planned.  I have tried to simplify my approach by  moving everything to my Spirit Cloth Blog.  But technical issues with the Typepad Blogging Platform has me once again considering using this space instead.

I know all of this virus stuff and political nonsense and my relocating and adjusting has reduced my focus on teaching.  Blog issues have not helped.

To make a long story short, I will be tweaking this place a bit  in hopes of continuing to build this resource.  This is just a test post . Not sure if anyone is following at this point.

Today it rained all day and I stitched on this:


I  will probably talk about this one on the Spirit Cloth Blog for now, but like I said, I just wanted to do a test post to see if  subscribing here is still working so I can transition over to here if necessary.


  1. Still quietly following and enjoying. I quarantined myself March 15 and decided to use this time to finish the UFOs. Didn’t know I had so many……. Working on #18 now. Stay well and happy.

  2. I’m a follower. This crazy world has been difficult to deal with. Stitching on my robe and listening to your soothing voiçe on your videos, rewatching some to catch the detail keeps me moving on.
    Remembering you said maybe things are never finished, wear them and keep stitching.

    I have returned! I took 2 of your (now free-such a generous gift!) classes about 7 years ago (?). Last week I came across the notebook I kept back then. My life has been changing & challenging in so many ways. Projects left unfinished & one class never completed. I am so happy to see that you are still here, providing a calming and creative space amidst way too much chaos! I found my hearts project & began stitching it again. I feel like I’ve come home to an old friend. I’m looking forward to picking up where I left off & exploring some of the inspiration I missed! So happy to return.

    I’m here! And wherever I can find you. I have enjoyed your work and your thoughts for years and I thank you for the opportunity. Stay safe!

    Hi there Jude ,great to hear from ya xxxxx Thought not being able to get into the “comments ” was just me being a Luddite ,so although sad for you that you have tech issues glad wasn’t my computer being naughty. Still here….I check now and again to see who else is about, will do so more often if things are stirring, big hug keep safe (and sane )

    Dear Jude,
    I will follow you wherever you go (if invited – I am not a stalker).
    I love what you are doing, but that is not new. I have been even a bit more reclusive than usual lately and I think I have missed a few stitches, but I do think of you very often and it makes me hopeful.
