News Flash!

Where do I begin?  I'm NOT pregnant! LOL  Just wanted to get that out of the way!  but here it is...


After many hours of prayers/contemplating/pondering, I have decided to scale back my schedule for this session.  My family needs me. I need to take care of me so I can take care of them.

I came across this recently and it really never left me.  My rewards are huge when I'm able to help and share my knowledge with other quilters.  The tedious behind the scenes stuff are not always as rewarding. 
So that leaves me with..

the GOOD NEWS!  I will continue doing the Open Sews on one Saturday per month and one on Tuesdays.  Open Sews will now be from 9 AM to 4 PM, $15 and you can pay me that day.  No need to sign up ahead of time.  We'll put you wherever there is room!  I'm opening a few spots upstairs to accommodate a few more people.   As always, Saturday Open Sews are potluck. Bring some food to share and your own drink (I do have bottled water).

It's time to SIMPLIFY a bit.  Our lives get so packed and full, and that's not all bad.  But sometimes it gets overwhelming and we need to scale back and re-focus.  I'm hoping that by simplifying my life a little bit, helps you simplify yours as well!  No new patterns to buy, books to invest in, no new fabric to buy (good?--your call! LOL) and homework to do!  Instead, lets focus this time on getting some older things done and feel good about a clean slate.   I can't totally abandon all my quilt friends!  I'll still be here to cheer you on, give a bit of advice where needed and be your moral support.  I just won't lead you down the path of MORE projects to do. We'll wait until fall to do that! :)

In the meantime, gather up your projects, make a list (I know how hard that is to do--it's all in writing now!) and make a plan.  A plan of what you would like to get done and let's work on this together.

Thanks for your understanding.
