Welcome to True Up 3.0!

Today I’m launching a big redesign for True Up, so if you use a feed aggregator, I hope you’ll jump over to take a look. The blog (along with a whole new identity system) was designed by the wonderfully talented Courtney of Seamless Creative (her blog, designworklife, is on my must-read list) and was WordPress-ified [...]

Thanks! *Sniff*

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your comments and emails. They helped me through an extremely difficult week — it was a huge comfort to know that so many of you have my back! I am feeling about 95% human now and will be finishing off the Spring Quilt Market posts [...]

Meet Me in Minneapolis!

Everyone is gearing up for Spring Quilt Market this week in Minneapolis, Minnesota. If you’re attending, or are a Twin Cities local who just likes fabric and sewing, here are two open-to-the-public events to which you’re invited! 1. The now-traditional Fabric 2.0 party. We don’t even have to call it “2.faux” like last Spring because [...]

True Up Is 2!

Two years ago today I launched True Up. Hooray! Don’t worry, I’m not going to get all introspective on you today — speechifying about how far this blog has come, and where it’s heading — but I just wanted to pause and thank everyone who has made this all possible. Thank you! Here’s hoping for [...]

How can I compete with that cuteness? (via Tom & Lorenzo on Facebook) Related posts: Fall Quilt Market 2009: [...]

True Up Is 1.

One year ago today, on Tax Day, I launched True Up. I can’t believe it’s been a year already and that I’ve managed to write posts nearly six days a week! I’m not doing anything fancy to celebrate, no big giveaways or announcements (though there are plenty of those in store for the future). I [...]
