Big News and a Realization



Yikes! Almost a whole Summer's worth of blogging to catch up on...I don't even know where to start. I do know, however, that it won't all fit into one post. And it's 10:30 pm, and I'm getting a little groggy. But I have to get something going on here, so...here it is, my big realization: Do not spend All. Day. Long. standing in your Cowboy boots while you are ironing, measuring, and cutting out many, many strips of fabric to make a quilt with! It may seem perfectly comfortable at the time, but you WILL be feeling it later!

The "Big News" I have right now is that I'm going to be teaching a quilting class! Yep. Me. Beginning quilting-very beginning quilting-class for kids. This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time...along with embroidery and some toy/doll making. At least I've got one foot in the door now!

I'll be doing catch-up (art retreats, swaps, quilting, embroidering, working on my own new patterns...lots of stuff) here over the next few days, so please check back soon because I'm getting this blogging thing going again no matter what. I really miss it.

I think I would really miss it too, even though I do get discouraged at times. You're going to be teaching a quilting class? Wow. I'm impressed. I'm trying to find someone to hire to make a quilt out of my daughter's multitude of gymnastics tee-shirts! Your weather sounds hot; please send us about 15 degrees.

I'm so glad you're getting to do what you want to do. Quilting - maybe that would be the class for me. Total beginners.

And if I had those boots, I might not want to take them off either. They look great!

Those are some great boots! How great that you're going to teach a class. Have fun.
