Back to Normal

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.

Nice thoughtful gifts from your family. It's good to be so supported. Now you're ready for anything in the new year. Encouragement leads to inspiration and new energy.
