Well here we are halfway through May already - and I do believe that warmer weather is finally going to stick around. It's been a bit chilly in these parts but I hear 80 is a real possibility this weekend.
Thank you for the wonderful comments - I was so going to respond back and I just haven't taken the time to do that. Please know I love love love hearing from you and so appreciate you take the time to visit and comment as well. I will be better about answering back from now on. With my computer stuck in the kitchen waiting on a new battery - which just came yesterday - yahoooo - I just use my ipad rather than stand at the counter where the computer is plugged in - lazy huh lol. Anyway I'm blogging from the comfort of my chair with my laptop and loving it.
So tomorrow I leave on a big old jet plane for Salt Lake City to attend quilt market with my friend Kari/New Leaf Stitches. I'm so excited to see what's new out there in quilt land and to take it all in as well as meet up with some friends. Its a very quick trip for Kari and I - but we should be able to get accomplished what we are setting out to do. Over the next few weeks I will be re-opening up my Etsy shop after a very long dry spell. I look forward to offering up some wool, quilt and stitchery kits as well as wool bundles and whatever else strikes my fancy. My mind has been racing and thinking up different ways to use little creations and with a talented woodworker friend or two I hope to offer them up in the Etsy shop.
Something I've been thinking about doing is offering a few gatherings a year in my sewing nest starting with one this autumn season and another before the Christmas holidays. What would be offered is a main project appropriate for the current season, another small and quick project that hopefully you could take home finished or at least close to it, lunch and dessert and maybe some decorating tips to get you inspired for the season. This would be a day of hand sewing and inspiration. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something that might interest you. There is no commitment at this time - I just want to see if there is interest before I move ahead and plan.
So I've been slow on getting out the Americana decorations but that will happen when I get home this weekend. I'm looking forward to freshening up the house for summer. I did buy a few plants for outside - but frankly it's to cold to plant anything - until now. I did get a new quilt hung up in the mudroom (excuse that cord under the table - I just saw that lol) and I'm good about changing my monthly little quilts
I have been working hard at organizing my nest tho - man it was in need of that. Here's the wool before and after
What you can't see is the shelving we put up over against the wall to house several other colors like orange, purple, pink and black. Do ya think I have enough lol. Anywhoooo that's not real exciting but organizing that space has been occupying my spare time. It's amazing what I found lol.
So that's it for now - I will see you back here next week to share what I learned at market along with show and tell. If you follow me on Instagram - I will be posting there during market.
Have an awesome week.
