Home Again...

Take a look at this phenomenal quilt, it received my vote for viewer's choice while visiting Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival last week. It is titled "Sweet Surrender" and made by Cindy Seitz-Krug of Bakersfield, CA. The incredible quilting on this one with the finest pink thread left me speechless; and, naturally, the piping called to me! It was a great weekend all around, but it's good to be home. I've been gone a lot lately and it's so good to have no trips planned again for awhile. My little laptop is home again, too, after a tune up, thank goodness! I attended a lecture last weekend by Libby Lehman, she showed slides of her studio and remarked that she keeps her computer outside of her creative space so that her communications and paperwork are separate. I like that idea. Too much of my day is spent checking e-mail and accessing the computer for other tasks. I will be more mindful from now on of placing the computer away and apart when I am sewing and quilting so that it's magnetic draw doesn't become too strong. I have fallen short this past month in meeting all of my goals and need to spend this early part of March playing catch-up; sigh. Oh yes... it's good, very good, to be back home again!

Life is Good!

That is precisely why my laptop stays DOWNstairs and my quilt/design studios are UPstairs. It is also why I do not use EQ ... I am on a computer 8 hours a day at work (whether I like it or not) so quilting is my GET AWAY space.

Welcome home!!!

Beautiful quilt! Thanks for sharing the picture. Sounds like it was a great time for you but I'm glad you get to be home now too. Home is always my favorite.
