Change is coming...

Hello all!  I have been very busy getting the next chapter of my life ready.  For the past 10 years I have dreamt of quilting for others.  After I had gotten so many compliments on my Pastors quilt, I am become more let me say,  "Quilt Shy!"  So in the next several months I will be busy updating my blog and other items.

YAY ME!!!  

I have a couple of pics to share, First...

This was my first attempt at loops...It was quite strenuous pushing thru my Janome, but I managed fine.  My shoulders and neck was aching for a couple of days.


These next two pictures are my next two big purchases, can you say, SPOILED ROTTEN!!!  Yes, yes I am.   I admittedly scream it from the top of my lungs, "My husband spoils me rotten!"  :o)

I will be bring home my new studio in about 2-3 months, Lord willing.


And this is my dream machine...I have a feeling my hubby will be surprising me with this for my birthday or Christmas...that would be sooo nice - Fingers and toes are crossed and prayers being uttered!

Well, I think this is enough for now.  I hope to give more business updates soon.

 
Until next time, have a quiltabulous day!!!

Time just slipped away from me...

Boy, how time has been slipping away from me!  I have been so consumed with day to day tasks, that I really hadn't had time to blog.  When I do get time, I try to sit at my machines and actually quilt or piece.  Well, let me catch you up:

  • The quilt that was made for my Bishop was delivered in January and she sent me a text saying, "I have no words for how you have blessed me!  I cried - I don't know what to say!!!  Thank you and know that I love you."  I feel honored and she sealed my fate - I A QUILTER, HEAR MY ROAR!!! :o)  To God be the glory, her doctor informed her last week that she was in remission!!!  I am so happy for her.
  • I HAVE LOST 17 MORE POUNDS!!!
  • I have basted 2 quilts
  • I finally finished the stacked coins quilt
  • Went looking and played on the HQ16, loved it!!!  I want to do it a couple of more times.  I can see definitely see this in my future (Next year!)
  • planning Gotcha party for the girls in April.  That is going to be a tuff month, we got our 3 year wedding anniversary, daughters bday, and several step shows.
  • My son's step won 1st place at Disney Classic Step National Competition!!! 
  • Husband and I are considering more children.
  • Girl scout cookie madness, I have a Daisy Scout and a Brownie Scout.  Both troops did a wonderful job trying to sell cookies!
I think that is it.  Sorry no pics, I just wanted to get a quick post in while I had the time!

Until next time,

Have a Quiltabulous day!
