Giving thanks for My Blog friends-YOU are Special to ME!
Here is a fun cat quilt from my book. I am waiting for the publisher here in town to do "Hoochy Twochy" my new book on hoochy quilt easy piecing with dogs and cats and hats and all kinds of new fun things along with pages from Hoochy Mama Quilt book and Flower Power. I expect that they cannot get it done until right after Christmas. I am down the line for their project list.
Beacuse they are teenagers, I rented a new studio space and move about 50 boxes and loads of furniture that will go to my new studio with clean painted walls of yello gold in the sewing room and the other space is a gorgeous turquoise. My furniture and things will be so pretty and my studio is only four minutes from home! I will be showing photos in my next blog entry for you. Eventually I will have a SMALL retail space in there and may do some private workshops for people who live close. Plus I will have some time this year to get more story quilts done. Makes me giddy thinking about it!
I purged alot of things and that lightened up my mood and now my Grandkids will have a nice Family room to bring their friends to. Its a win win.
Many people ask where I got all of the buttons. I have bought alot on the road but my Father used to go to garage sales and look for them for me. I plan to do a quilt called "Button Man" about him. He was a very sweet guy. One time my friend went to a garage sale and she was fighting with what she called "an old guy" over these buttons. He got them and she was so mad. Then we found out if was my Dad and we all laughed. Haha.
Let's make the New Year our best and happiest so far. I know that 2017 is going to be special and full of happy surprises for all of us. Looking forward to be positive and happy. Isn't that what we all want? Thank you for stopping by dear friends. I plan to be better about putting things on here including some give aways.
