I completely fell off the blogging bandwagon this summer. Things (meaning life) just got wildly out of control, and I haven’t had a spare minute for anything extra. When things get that hectic, it seems like the blog is an easy thing to give up on until things calm down.
My Cowboy just said to me this morning, “Interruptions are life. That’s never gonna change. You’re just gonna have to roll with it.” Easier said than done. It’s turning me into a person even I don’t wanna be around!
I have so much to tell you and show you here in this space, and I haven’t had time to put any of it together yet. Research, writing, scanning and editing pictures, computer time, sewing time — it’s all a little overwhelming and going so slowly for me right now.
Remember that quilt-along I promised back in June? Yeah. That’s still gonna happen, and I’m getting oh-so-close to starting it, so please hang in here with me and stay tuned, and we’ll get to it shortly.
I do a lot of sewing/quilting for the twice-yearly trade show for the quilting industry, called Quilt Market, and I also quilt for designers who have books and patterns in the works, and therefore very tight deadlines. But . . . I think I’m about to get caught up on all that, so I can get back to my regularly-scheduled program!
I have so many fun things planned, so stick with me, and check in to see what those are. I even have a couple new give-aways in the works!
I’m going to a workshop this weekend to learn a new-to-me technique. We can all benefit from occasionally adding a new tool to our toolboxes, can’t we? I signed up for it months ago, when I was sure I’d be all caught up and have plenty of time for it. Now that the time is here, I’m simultaneously feeling excited about learning something new, and guilty for taking the couple days off to go do it when I have so much left undone.
Next week, I’m giving my program about The Life of Hazel Ilene to my home guild, the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild, in Kirksville, Missouri. I’ll be presenting Hazel’s story, and showing all the projects from the book. If you’re in the area, you are welcome to come be our guest that evening.
It’s Wednesday, October 19th, at 6:30, at the Adair County Annex Building in Kirksville, Missouri (on north Franklin Street, one block north of the town square). Maybe I’ll see you there?
And please check back soon. I’m planning on getting things rolling along again, and you won’t want to miss anything!
