My Emerald Challenge quilt is coming along! Yet, the deadline is quickly approaching. For me, the first deadline is getting my quilt top ready for the quilter by August 15. After that, I am hoping to have it back by September 15. That gives me two weeks to complete the binding before the October 1 deadline.

How are your Emerald Challenge projects coming along? What are you working on?

Even though the deadline is approaching, I think it is not too late to start a project like a table runner or purse featuring the challenge fabric. I am already excited to see the final results!

Happy stitching,

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
