Ready to start my next quilt!

Ready to start on the next quilt! An unconventional Christmas quilt! 
Instead of the usual red and green, I'm doing it in pink, black and white!
Those of you who know me will understand...those who don't, I'll explain one day :)
Keep watching for pictures!
And, the website is going up right after Christmas....stay tuned!

What I do in my "spare" (yea, right) time !

"Winter Blues"
This is my "spare" time passion.(which I have very little of at the moment) I love the smell of a wet oil painting!

Sometimes I really regret High School, where I crammed in all the sewing and art courses I could. Sometimes taking them again because they were so fun. I kind've skipped the "important" stuff to follow my passion. It's hard to get a job in our small (but growing) city if you didn't follow "the norm" in H.S.

I have worked at all the sewing factories (UGH) and have painted the side of a Sporting Goods building, and poppies on a shed. I have worked for every (?) Bridal store in the area , but most people wouldn't call those "real jobs".

Oh, well, this is me, and I am having fun . And so excited to open for business in a few weeks...so off to keep practising on the long arm!!

Wish this was my fabric stash :)

Funny quilt video of 100 ways to "hide your stash" .  Mine is too organized to hide :)

Looking forward to my "grand opening" on January 2 , 2011! Gotta get the website up and running soon! Also have to pay my state $70 dollars for a fictitious name.
Right now in the midst of Christmas shopping and decorating...ugh!

Happy Holidays to all of you!
