Here is the reason…

Ok, there are a lot of reason’s I have not been in blog land.  The first is… We have a new book coming out in a little over a month…My projects are all done.  My 1st draft of my directions are done.  Photography is half done.  I will soon post some of the projects when it gets a little closer to print.  On Jan. 15th my long arm quilting machine was delivered.  So you know what that means..I have to learn how to use it.  To this date I have quilted 6 quilts.  One of them which will be in the new book..is shown here on my machine.  I have to do something about those white walls..eeeeek..I am so used to warm color..but must have lots of light when quilting in the basement.  There is so much to learn and I have so many questions.  I have only done some edge to edge quilting so far… but my goal is to do custom quilting on my own quilts.

I think Carole and I are strung out from too much book stuff… but the load is lessoning.  I am looking forward to my Tampa Fl trip to teach 2 workshops and a lecture and trunk show starting March 11 for the Feather Princess Guild.  I will have to get lots of stuff done between now and then, but I am used to that…after another snow storm this week,Tampa sounds better every minute.  So I promise to post more often..you know I wanted this weblog to not be about my shop/business…I wanted it to be more personal, but I find it hard because I AM my shop/business, it is what I do and love.  So to heck with that I am going to talk about what ever I want from now on…piece out!

    Lisa – Your quilt is awesome! I am quite envious of your new baby! Hopefully, someday I will be able to adopt one of my own! For now I will keep admiring others, can’t wait to see the new book also. Happy quilting! Danielle

    Looks good. I already want the book. All your things are great.
    Hope it is not snowing where you are. San Diego has been in the 80’s the last 3 days.
    TOO HOT!
