It's a pretty exciting Monday...I have some big news to share today.
First, I found out this weekend that "Quilting Modern" is in its 2nd printing only a little over two months from its release date.
I can tell you I'm pretty over the moon about it.
Second big news...today is the day that QuiltCon announces the whole conference deal....prices, class catalogue...the whole shebang. I hope you're planning on coming....I can't tell you how excited I am about it. I'm teaching, lecturing with quilts in hand and I'm planning on learning, learning, learning! I hope you got your QuiltCon newsletter today to read all about it.
Reading is always a part of our vacation ritual. I read three books that reenergized me.
War of Art is a go to book, a must read and I read it when I need a creative kick in the butt. I always need a creative kick....I've read this book many times and I always learn something about myself and how I work and maybe how I can work a little better.
Yes, it had a library. I'm in the middle of house hunting in Chicago and finding the process totally frustrating. There's a conflict between what I want, need and can afford. This book was all about living simply and what is really needed and important in a home. Reading this book was a grounding experience for me and I'm refreshed and ready to tackle more house hunting with a new outlook.
It nice to be home!
