*Our NYC MOD meeting was Saturday,and it felt like EVERYONE came to share! It was a large meeting, with loads of inspiration flying around the room! Diane S, had this little cutie to share. You cans see why I jumped up to take a picture! Love that made fabric star!
I had asked my friend Linda Lum DeBono, if she'd come share her books and projects with us, and she did! It was like having Christmas all over again! So many bright happy colors, and fun holiday themed projects from her new book,Sew Merry and Bright: 20 Easy, Fun, and Festive Patterns (That Patchwork Place)http://www.lindalumdebono.com/
*So why the videos lately?
I've been calculating how much time I spend at my computer... waaay to much!
Do you know how many more quilts I could have done? LOL!
I'm trying to find a balance of the time I spend sitting here typing away, and getting work done on quilts. I know the blog is a good way to share, but it really does take me LESS time to shoot a 4-5 minute video... or even better 2-3 minute, which I can shoot it, then let it upload, which takes a while, so I can get up and walk away while the computer does it's work! More sewing time!
Typing, loading images, thinking about what I want to say, sometimes it's an hour or more for posts...
I know many of you are skimmers. You come to see the pics and then scoot away. We all do that, I get it. I have also found out that many of you peak at blogs at work! tsk tsk! ;-) hahaha! This is kind of fun learning all these things!
I'm good with that. Sometimes we only have minutes...I get it.
I may try to do a combo of videos with a couple posts in between... I will always have back up images to go with the videos unless I'm totally "in a pickle" with time. Currently, this image above shows 10 projects on the pile... See what I mean? Where do I start?
I've tried posting less, but I get to many ideas that I think are fun to share... haha! Oh well... Balance, That's what life is all about. Right?
So. Thanks for your input, it's great that you all shared your thoughts, and I appreciate each one of them.Perhaps I can satisfy all... A little of both...
We will see.
Spring issue of STUDIOS! Check it out! I can't wait to see it myself!
*For now, I'm heading up to my friend John's place today, to try out his long arm machine...
No, I don't use a long arm... I quilt on a JUKI home machine...
But... it may save me more time, something to think about! When you are a one woman show, you need all your minutes!
**Oh! Before I forget...
Hopefully by the end of the week I will have my details in order for a new community project... Baby quilts and Twin size quilts for 70 families... Don't email me yet with questions, please wait for the post... Details soon!
P.S. See what I mean about thinking of a million things I could tell you?
