|Jenny Egg was lost in my fabric mess over the holiday.|
Vacation is over!
Was that a vacation?
Wowza, that was a tough week.
I can't say I'm back to my old self,
I doubt that will be for a while,
But I can tell you making the quilt I shared in the last post,
did wonders for me...
And talking to many friends. I will be off to Duluth end of the week...
So thank you for the support and kind words! You guys are lovely, helpful and appreciated.
New Year, New Quilts, New projects, New Friends! I hope to meet many more of you this year on my travels. Currently I am preparing for the Aurifil Cruise that leaves on Jan 30th through the Caribbean, With Tula Pink, Carolyn Friedlander, Jill Finley and myself.
February is QuiltCon.
March is a trip to Antarctica with my family.
April is Melbourne, Australia!
So things gotta be ship shape around here...
I'm also ORGANIZING!!!
New Year to me, is spring cleaning to others...
This is a never ending project, but, on my mind is cleaning out, and finding homes for things that I just don't need. I don't like having a lot of STUFF around, and that includes a BIG stash, Can you believe it? To much fabric, to many quilts piled up, to much stuff. I do like keep things simple around here... and at the moment my office/storage room is a disaster. So, things gotta change!
I shared a photo on Facebook of a chair in my basement, at my house...I made the comment that maybe I need to find a better storage solution ( HAHA) and have gotten many ideas about what to do with these old early quilts of mine. Certainly I know what to do with them, it's just TIME first... I need to hang them, photograph them, catalog them, label them all... FIRST. That's very important to me, I like to be able to have seen where I've came from, and keep track of the quilts I've made. This is hard to do when you are only at your house here and there, so for now, they sit piled on a chair like the leaning tower of Quilts... I'm sure my families at Acacia, (BASICS) in Transitional housing, would be thrilled to have many of them. Some I think are important and I want keep them, some not so much... Many will find homes. But for now... My biggest problem is TIME.
And after this past week, Time is very precious indeed.
Keep each day filled with gratitude, and love.
