All Squared Up

All Squared Up All Squared Up began as a way to generate interest in my quilt making, but has morphed into a general blog about life in Sacramento, vegan cooking, our silly mutt Molly, our fabulous neighbors, gardening in this great weather and day-to-day Sac life.

White space suits and promises

White space suits and promises

Back in the early part of 1991, while slogging through the tragic haze of my father dying, we began to plan our wedding. When it comes to dates, I love nice balanced numbers. Getting married on the 25th, or the 10th, or the 30th, those are good dates i...

Keeping Molly in dog food

Keeping Molly in dog food

If money comes in waves, this month is a tsunami. There is nothing I can do but just try to keep kicking and keep my head above water. Because I had a co-worker who was killed, I am working much more than usual in my school district job. I'm still writ...

Bottling up the whines

Bottling up the whines

Our plum wine/brandy/moonshine project continues, without a lot of input from me. It's not that I'm not that into it (I'm not) but I've been working more than usual, often at night. That means I come home to a kitchen looking like a science lab, intere...

Today's post is written by our dog sitter, house sitter, neighbor and friend. Or at least she was when we left for a week in Chicago. Here is the note we came back to that gave us a laugh at 3 am.Welcome Home! Hope your flight and drive home went smoot...

Plane Misery

What is worse than catching a really early flight in San Francisco that requires a 2:30 am alarm clock set? That would be not needing the alarm because I never slept. Feeling so tired from prepping for a trip on top of being sick on top of being a clea...

Felina, the purrrfectly puffy rag quilt

Often when I have the most things to do, that's the time I decide I really must...just have to...can't wait any longer...the world will stop turning unless I do...forget it all...I have to make a rag quilt or I'll just go batty from batting withdrawal....

If it tastes good, spit it out

If it tastes good, spit it out

The other day I was at a rest home with Ernst. He has conducted a Bible study at this particular rest home for over 10 years. He has two objectives - give them comfort and try to stir their memories. Monday he was asking everyone  - Who in history...

Eating vegetables like there is a tomorrow

Eating vegetables like there is a tomorrow

We've all been at those gathering of friends and family. The ones with the yummy food. The ooey gooey casseroles, the creamy dreamy concoctions, the to-die-for desserts. And of course the salad. A party would not be complete without a big green salad s...

Moo Moo Millie, an Utterly Bovine Deconstructed Cow Quilt

Got Quilt?It's a great feeling when a complete stranger buys one of my quilts. I get the notification from Etsy, give the quilt a once-over, check for stray threads, find a good sized box, weigh it, print up the label and make the happy trip to the pos...
