With the weather now changing to 40+ degrees we are having a big melt of all the snow that has piled high on the rooftops and ground all around the city. It is a good thing but we are now in a flash flood warning. Always something.
I think I have recovered from all the Christmas stress and prep and am ready to get back to normal and back in my studio to work on my pinecone quilt and begin a larger project. My daughter Molly gave me a year membership to SAQA (Studio Art Quilters Association) so on January first I can access their membership areas of their site and check out all they have to offer. I am very excited about that. She also gave me a year membership to the Plymouth Arts Foundation here in our community. This means I can put my work in this years membership show. That was a wonderful present and meant so much to me. She is a graphic designer as well and so supportive of the new direction I have taken my quilting.
My husband gave me a substantial gift certificate to our local Quilt Shop, The Sewing Basket, and I am trying to decide if I should go in for their sale on the 31st to spend it, or wait for all the new fabric to come in and then spend it. It is a nice dilemna to be in.
