Where did the last two months go????

I swear sometimes when you blink days just fly by!!!

I have been a very busy girl these days.  I figured I should do a quick update and then get back on my routine of posting!! 

So what have I been up to since my last blog.....

I finished the cat quilt and the lady who bought it took it home.  I got the kids approval!!!

 And when she gave it to her sister....she cried!!  Now that's a good response!!  Christie told me later that she had never given her sister a present that made her cry!! They were all so touched by the that's what it's all about!!!

After that....I got to travel to Virginia Beach to the annual Birds of a Feather quilt extravaganza!!  Valerie and the whole Virginia Longarm Network team put on a great event!!  If you do longarming or need to attend!!

I got to teach Pantovision and Blogging for business.  I had a great time teaching and I even took a class.  Lisa Calle's Divide and Design class was awesome!!  I learned  lot and it will definitely help in the future!!!

This is my Blogging For Business Class!

The Erie peeps..... Debbie (on left) Betty (on right).  Debbie, her daughter, and I rode down together.  Debbie's son is stationed there!!  We had a great time in the car!!!  I am glad I had them with me to share the long drive!!!  Pride and Prejudice was the book on tape we listen to....all three of us are big fans and had fun quoting our favorite parts!!!

My class with Lisa Calle

Me and Cathy Frank..... Love her!!!  Glad I got to meet her!!!  I had the greatest and I mean greatest dinner with her, Jo Ann Blade, Kim Diamond, Mary Reinhardt, and Nancy McNally!!!!  These ladies are not only very talented..... They are funny!!!!   I will cherish that dinner for years to come!!!

I got to "angel" one of Nancy Wicks Autopilot class!!!  How lucky was that!!!  She's a great teacher!!!   

What a great time..... I met so many new people and saw those I already knew but don't see often!!!

Then it was back home where I've been busy with customer quilts and teaching the QMR class to new renters!  

Last announcement.....I am taking the plunge and I have given my notice at my "day job"!  It's bittersweet!!  I have worked for the Achievement Center for almost 13 years.  I will miss the agency and the great work they do with children.  But as someone, who stopped by the studio to ask what it was all about, pointed out...."my passion for longarming really shows".  I have to agree, I love what I'm doing and am excited about this new venture!!!

We just need it to get WARMER!!!!  These below zero temp days are for the birds....actually I don't think the birds liked it either!!!

That was the lowest I saw ever.... Ugh is the word for that!!!

Where ever you are....I hope it's warming up and you are sewing and being happy!!! 

Happy Sewing!!
