On the Move

I'll be on the move one way or the other in the next week. I'm heading to North Carolina to do a trunk show at Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill on Thursday the 11th and an improv class on the 12th and 13th. I haven't been back to NC in years, so it's going to be like going home. If you're in the neighborhood I'd sure love to see you!  I can't wait!
Everything in the house is packed, from fabric down to the last spoon in the kitchen.  We don't know quite where we're going, we just know we're going.
In the midst of all this the second printing of Quilting Modern finally arrived on the slow boat from China!  I'm so happy to have copies again, though the last thing I needed was another big, heavy box in the house.  The book should be shipping to stores and Amazon is no longer charging 70+ dollars for a copy.  If you don't have a copy, now is the time!
I actually have been making quilts over the last couple of months.  This one is Firestacks, inspired by my childhood campfire building experiences.  Firestacks will be in Quilt Trends magazine this winter.  I've also got work in Interweave's Quilt Scene magazine, Mary Fon's new magazine, Quilty, and in the debut issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited. I'm thrilled about Modern Quilts Unlimited, a magazine dedicated to modern quilts and quilters.  Pretty cool that modern quilting is the star of this publication!  The debut issue is being printed and you won't want to miss it!

I'm hoping that we'll be in our new condo in the next couple of weeks and that I can plan, organize and begin working in the new studio.  I believe it's going to happen!

A leap of faith, for sure. Good luck with the travel and with the move -- it'll all come out in the end, even if the trip feels rocky!

And I can't wait to see that quilt top -- I love the brown sashing! So dashing. ;)

So many wonderful publications to look forward to! I hope you get moved and settled soon. The waiting must be a killer.

Oh my goodness Jacquie! I so hope things settle out movewise just like you want it to. What a busy time for you. I for one, am so excited to see you next week. I hope the trip can be an enjoyable one even with everything you have going on with the move!

Hopefully you're settled in the condo before the hustle and bustle of the Holidays begins. I know we can always make lemonade with enough lemons but maybe you'd rather be drinking Champagne!

(I'm beginning to feel very unsettled. It should subside as soon as you're settled )

Good luck with the move. Enjoy NC. I am looking forward to seeing you in Austin in February, and do I hear a rumor that you will be in Orlando next summer?!
