Well, it's that time of year for me....time to get busy and create! Anyone who knows me knows that this isn't really 'work' because I love doing it. People always ask "where do you get the time to do this?" Well, it's what I do to unwind. Some people work out (which I need to do more:), others shop, some work outside the home, this is what I do. Once the kids are in bed or if I've got a free hour here and there in the day, creating is what I do. I'm fortunate to have my own space where I can put on some tunes, relax and get into 'create' mode. It might be paper, it might be fabric but either way I usually enjoy it. It doesn't always get finished in a timely fashion but it's the process that counts.
The picture above is something I'm currently working on. I'm bananas for anything plaid and fall is my favorite season so I combined the two and with the help of an inspiring pattern, created this fall table topper. I actually made two and sold one at Campbell Valley Country Fair this past weekend. My friend/cousin Kim is the one who introduced me to the fun of quilting and she's taught me well! Her and I team up and do a few fairs along with our annual Christmas open houses each year. There'll be much more coming on my blog about those but if you're looking for dates already you can check out the "events" list on the left side of this blog.
Well, we cleared out a lot of stock at Campbell Valley this weekend so it's back to the drawing board...what to make next??? It's going to be a busy week with the upcoming funeral for my Grandpa and the family coming in from out of town but I know that I can head to my haven and get some R & R while I work on the next creation.
Stay tuned for much, much more!
