Back in Action!!!

Hey hey hey!!!

I'm so excited! For the first time in over a year, I will be able to quilt again. The excitement I feel is like a volcanic explosion of smiles! Since I moved, life has thrown me buckets of whoa but nothing I can't handle yet. Feeling good, positive energy, striving for clear and effective communication. My kids are still the sunshine in my life and I am happily in love. I took up crocheting and am mildly successful with that though it's nothing compared to quilting. I'm trying to work out in my mind-palace how to combine quilts and crocheting. I'll get it in time!

So, I will be setting up my space next week. That will take some time. Getting the right lighting, lining things up with outlets, where to put an ironing board, hang my tools or put them in a desk? You know the drill. Gotta get a good flow to my workspace to make the most of my time and make it easy to feed my creative needs. Oh and music! Or something to listen to audiobooks. Necessary!

Before I moved to the west coast I spent over a month cutting fabric and making foundations for quilt projects. It was a good use of my time at the time and I'm very glad I did it now. But first, wait, oh yea. First, I have to finish quilts that I have the tops done, I have the batting and backing. Here they are:

QAYG - 75% complete

Batik Scrap Quilt

Garden Lap Throw

Chicks and Dots Baby Quilt

Next I'm going to work on the projects I cut the fabric for. The following pics are of the patterns:

I will be very busy! It'll be so satisfying tho, to get a bunch of projects completed in a short period of time. Whooooaaaa!
