3 days and counting until the truck arrives and all my furniture and all those boxes I've been so carefully packing will be on their way to Chicago. I've saved the studio (and the garage...aaaak!) for last on my packing agenda. I've had my nose to the grindstone, fixing, painting, and sprucing. The house looks amazing. It's ready for a new owner (hopefully someone will want to buy her), and I'm ready to say a fond farewell.
I was able to come up for air a bit last week. I spent a few days in beautiful northern Arkansas talking and teaching with the lovely folks of the Q.U.I.L.T. Guild of Northwest Arkansas. It was great to get out of the house and back to doing what I love to do. I had the pleasure of talking to their guild and doing a trunk show as well as teaching a full day workshop on improvisational quilting. We had a big group and so much fun. A few friends from the KCMQG came down (thanks guys!) and then there was a bunch from the Arkansas guild. What wonderful folks...so open, willing to try, jump out of the box and totally talented. We had a ball!
A few more weeks and I'll be in Chicago permanently. I'm ready to be settled with my hubby and back to sewing! Won't be long now!
Be sure to drop by tomorrow for a review of Nancy Zieman's great new book and a chance to win a copy for yourself.
