Quilter's Comfort and Patricia's Wellness Arts Cafe at MAKEVENTION


It is now weeks since MAKEVENTION, a convention of makers sponsored by Bloominglabs here in Bloomington, IN.  I recall the evening before the event, leaving the tea cave, Ursula, and wondering why I was still in town.  Finally as I was about to turn onto the road out of town, there before me in the right lane was a maker rig just pulling into town.  I knew where they were headed and found them the next day to offer a welcome and hello.

Here Yuko and BJ at my booth.  She is demonstrating her Otedama made of repurposed kimono silk from Japan.  See the plate with crumbs above the sign?  That is what remains of my delicious bread offered as a base for those sampling my jelly.

The jellies went over beautifully and to my surprise and delight, so did my first ever bake from my sour dough culture!

My daughters and I are taking a Sourdough Bread Baking class online through a platform called Craftsy.  It is my first such experience taking a class via the web.This is something I am able to share with my daughters, though we explore on different schedules from different locations.    I am having such a great time learning a lot and finding so many people passionate about sourdough.

This thing  with the living yeast goes deep.  There is someone with a starter that has a 100 year lineage!   Since beginning this class, I have made a few quick breads, crackers with the Chocolate Seasoning that are a huge hit, baguettes, boules and now ready to begin incorporating my jelly and other herbal blends! 

 Boules!  Yum Yum.
 At this time, I am considering having some of my sourdough creations at Winter Fair in November in the Bloomington Convention Center.  That will depend on my energy levels and planning.

I always enjoy hearing the different descriptions people offer for my jellies, books, and other artistic maker works.  I am still amazed with the flexagon book structures and do delight in sharing them.  Most of the folks here are techie, sharing collections, such as the IU Puzzle Collection guy or the Creative Anachronistic.

If I had given it thought, I might have imagined there to be a puzzle collection, and now I have had a glimpse into the holdings at IU.  Maybe a perfect adventure  on  a cold winters day.  When I go, perhaps, I will take with me an example of the puzzles I make special from time to time.

In the booth beside me was an amazing group of women with fiber, one with a drop spindle, others waving knitting needles and crochet hooks and all surrounded with wonderful soft woven shawls and other objects!

Since then, I continue my updating journey through the website and other abandoned web resources.  Why do I do this?  Because,  I choose to earn my living with something that I enjoy and want to put energy into creating the opportunity for you to purchase, enjoy and appreciate as well.

And this is how I joyfully create resources to craft a sustainable lively hood that allows me to honor my financial commitments as I share some of what I love.

Quilter’s Comfort is about piecing together natures herbal goodness one amazing plant at a time.
Blessings and thank you for this opportunity to enjoy and share this amazing journey with you!
