I've been a little quiet here in blog land. Just when I think I'm going to post on a regular schedule, I don't! Geez. This past week and weekend has been very productive though. I'm doing a "blog hop" that is happening right now. Here is a link to one of the eight designers and I've made one project so far; the "quilt as you go" tree wall hanging. Doable in one afternoon, binding included.
I've also had a friend come over and she went into Organization Mode on warp speed! We (I did help a bit) moved and sorted and purged and regrouped and cleaned and regrouped (did I say that already?) We did this many times on Sunday afternoon. Well, needless to say, the end result has been amazing. I couldn't have done it without her help. Thank you Lisa!
This morning I got up, poured my coffee and went downstairs to my studio. For the first time since I moved in (Oct 17/18) I felt like I could breathe and it was so terrific!
Part of this is due to me quilting a customer quilt and getting it off the machine, loading another quilt onto the machine (one less in the pile), putting binding on a quilt that I've been working on since the beginning of 2007. This quilt will be a whole post one day, and that day shall be coming soon! Needless to say, moving projects along and getting things finished is going to be the best thing for my studio.
Now my commitment to myself is to finish up some things. I've moved my studio twice, but the first move was easy; I picked up the boxes and moved them. Done. This move, not so much. Every piece of fabric has been handled and moved to a new storage system,
I will leave you with a few pictures of a team project I did with my friend Norma T. Her piecing is beautiful and we had the honor of having our quilt hang in Skamania Lodge last year.
