Getting my bearings………

With a week in the new house under my belt, I am beginning to enjoy the fruits of all our work the past year. Every window (and there are many!) showcases why we chose this property to build on.


The serenity of our surroundings will hopefully, in time, translate into more serenity in our lives. For now, there are still a lot of odds and ends to fill my days as I get this house up and running.

But, I do have my studio. And, I began to use it  to share my love of fabric  with my granddaughter. Here is a series of photos that I posted on Facebook earlier this week of my granddaughter playing on my design wall.


In addition, I was able to take all those UFOs from earlier years that I mentioned last week and create a quilt top for one of our guest rooms.


Next week will most certainly inspire me to return to more creative fiber work as I am heading to Houston. My art quilt, Imagine, was juried into Quilts: A World of Beauty and I am looking forward to seeing it on display at the show as well as taking in all the other wonderful quilts that will be on display. I hope to attend a few lectures and, of course, stroll through the vendor displays. Will let you about my adventures when I return the following week!
