Welcome to my new blog. It has been on my “to do” list to begin a blog, but starting something new is a bit scary and learning the ropes takes time. I’ve decided to just jump in and begin. One of the advantages of a blog is the ability to share up-to-the-minute information and thoughts.
For instance, I just received the September issue of The Quilter Magazine. A little wall quilt that I made, At the Shore, is featured in this issue. It is a beach scene through a window featuring boats, beach umbrellas and a sun. It has been some time since I made this quilt and submitted it, so seeing it again was like visiting with an old friend. As I look at the quilt again, I recall making it in the dead of a snowy New Hampshire winter. I must have been longing for the warm summer sunshine.
I do travel quite a bit, so being home this weekend is a welcome retreat. I purchased some wonderful Japanese silk fabrics from a vendor while teaching at Quilt Colorado a few weeks ago and I am looking forward to working on a new reversible vest. I do love wearing my vests when I travel to teach because they are light weight to pack (everything is about weight these days!) and they make wardrobe decisions really easy. My next book, Easy Reversible Vests – Revised Edition, is expected to be released in September. I have not yet received back all the new vests that I sent into Martingale to be photographed for the book, so I am whipping up a few new ones. When I wrote the original Easy Reversible Vests almost 15 years ago, I made petite size vests……lol….now my vests are size medium. I must have gotten fluffy over the past 15 years. I look forward to sharing my new vest with you in a future posting.
Until next time, may all your points be perfect,
