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.
