I'm still around and FINALLY feel a HUGE load lifted off of me. The past 3 months have been crazy with traveling and obligations I volunteered for....but as I look over the next few months, no traveling is on the schedule--well one road trip to Quilt Odessey in Hershey, PA.
I have offically become the new secretary (for the next year) for the Four County Quilt Guild, based in Mt. Airy, Maryland and the new president (for the next 2 years) of the Mid-Appalachian Quilters' retreat. Call me crazy, but I wanted to help out. And since I have these new obligations, I won't be volunteering for anything else for a while.
I have finished up another swap (putting in the mail today!) and signed up for another one (yep, I'm crazy). Still participating in 2 year long swaps.
I haven't sat and sew at my own home machine in over 2 months. I have done a lot of hand work...you read that right, hand work. In fact enjoying it a wee bit. I'm taking a class at my shop with Mimi Dietrich on how to hand applique and having a blast!
I am waiting to show off my latest art quilt, being I somehow deleted the pictures I took of it and I'm sooo bummed...but it did arrive safely to its new home in Austin. Ms. Anjea loves it and promises me a picture so I can share it here :)
I have no pictures to share --well, quilting related. My family took its first vacation to the ocean and here's a group shot of some of the happy putt-putt golfers :)
I hope to get my sewing area organized this week and back to the grind. I feel like I'm missing out on so many projects!
