Lunchtime finds me eating leftovers and checking emails and writing a quick note just to keep in touch. Our summer is on track to be a busy one. I have a show in Edmond, Oklahoma on the last weekend in July. The rest of the summer is earmarked for cleaning, reorganizing, taking stock of UFO’s (Un-Finished Objects) and finishing as many as possible. (Maybe I can squeeze a short vacation in there somewhere.) I have always said that having lots of projects in process allows me to have a working demonstration of anything, ready at a moments notice. Well, even that thought has to have boundaries. My girls don’t want to inherit that many UFO’s.
We have already done quite a bit of reorganizing in the front hallway of the shop. Extra seating, an antique machine and quilt, and old-fashioned rug looms inspire your creativity as soon as you walk in the door! We have also pulled out some oldie-but-goodie samples and have hung them from the tall ceiling in the show room. Check out the pictures below or come on in to see for yourself!
I also have my first grandbaby coming in September! I am having fun pulling remnants from my stash to make things. I need to quit pulling things and start making or all I will have accomplished is moving my stuff from one place to another, just sorted differently.
September is going to see an MQX quilt show in Springfield, IL. This show was held there quite a number of years ago. Now it’s back. It will start on Sept 24 with classes. The vendor mall opens on the 25th and goes through the 27th. I will be there with Stable Piecing and Legacy batting, and I am helping in the Nolting booth. If you are looking for a longarm quilting machine this is THE place to see it all. Nolting is the easiest machine to use and lets your creativity emerge and bloom.
Until next time,
