|Busy Busy Busy - Spring is Coming!
This last week has been spent trying to catch up after my trip to the Tokyo Quilt Festival.
I came back to 5 different project deadlines looming over the next few months, so after a stress meltdown earlier in the week, I got back on track by just taking it one day at a time, and one project at a time.
(That was besides editing
my quilt photos from the Tokyo show for you all to enjoy!) These deadlines will be here in no time, so that means...Spring is coming soon!
A couple of these projects are secret for now, but I'll be excited to share them over the next month or two.
The NEXT deadline is that I am creating an all new Color and Trend presentation for
Quilt Con which is the premiere
Modern Quilt Guild conference in Austin in 2 weeks! I hope that those of you attending can come to my trend presentation on Sunday Feb 24 at 11 am.
I am having SO much fun putting this together for you!
I also have a fabulous local fundraiser event for our local quilting friends: on the weekend of May 5th I will be giving a presentation for the
Longmont Historical Society, to help raise funds for the victorian-era Hover Home.
I am going to do a show-and-tell with quilts and my textile collection, we'll have tea afterward, and the event will be an unforgettable experience to benefit this beautiful old historic estate.
With docents/servers in period costume, antique teacups, and live music on the baby grand piano...we'll have quite a lovely time.
(Details and links coming soon!)
This weekend we are celebrating Chinese New Year, and welcoming in the
Year of the Water Snake.
I read that the pollution is so bad in Beijing, that they are asking celebrants to cut back on firecrackers this year!
If your sweetie is at a loss for
Valentines Day gift ideas, you can always drop a hint with the eQuilter
Wish List, or ask for an
eQuilter Gift Certificate.
We've been watching the news and following the big storm in the Northeast, and we are especially concerned about those who are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
We are grateful to all of you who have sent comfort quilts so far: as soon as the quilts arrive at the Timeless Treasures warehouse, we are having them distributed asap to those in need of a warm quilt.
Be sure to read our guidelines carefully if you are working on a quilt to keep someone warm.
I hand-carried several copies each of the
two show books from the Tokyo Quilt Festival, and they will go FAST, so if you are a collector and want to see all the best quilts from this show,
place your order right now!
sharing your Passion for Fabric...
