My studio is feeling abandoned. Thursday I was working in the house and today I was in Milton and Pensacola, FL, attending professional meetings and not buying fabric.
While in the 2 hour professional meeting I was working on designs for a new quilted jacket. I find that I can concentrate better when my hands are busy: that's my story and I'm sticking to it. After the meeting I went to two fabric stores looking for cream and light tan fabrics for a block swap and found nothing I liked. I did, however, get a couple yards of two batiks that will eventually be part of "something." (I have never made anything with batik)
Last week I won a blog giveaway from Gene Black: the first one ever. When I got home there was a package waiting for me. And this is what was in it: a quilted journal, beautiful fabric, and a unique pendent made by Gene, the artist. I am thinking about using the journal to document the quilts I do this year and if that works I'll try it again next year. Thanks, Gene!
Also last week I was given this Fabulous Award from Pollyanna. I appreciated the honor but then I was supposed to list my 5 addictions. Now, as a former addictions therapist, I didn't think I had any addictions. But, to be a good sport, and to be honest, I do have some very strong preferences:
1. DH (even though he frequently drives me crazy)
4. Cheetos (rarely since going on WW)
5. Blogs (reading and writing)
So as you can see, even though I haven't been sewing for the last two days, I have been busy. Tomorrow, however, I will be back at work in my favorite place and maybe I will get enough done to have something to share.
