It's the last day of 2011 and I made a quilt top yesterday, for a new class I'll teach in the spring. It will be Utility quilted--often called Big Stitch-- and I am eager to get the back pieced and the quilt basted, so I can start the quilting. A photo will be coming soon.
My other life is about to interfere with my quilting life: I'm starting my 32nd year with H&R Block as a tax professional. That means I go back to work full time starting next week. That really cuts into my quilting time. And my son is getting married March 31, 2012--not the best timing for me, but it's not about me, is it?

So, welcome to my world. I hope you find things here that interest you and I look forward to taking you along on my joyful journey!
Looking forward to following your blog! Your BOM looks fabulous! Hugs....MJReplyDelete
I'm here! Love what you've done in your studio - have to find a reason to stop by to see it in person. :) Is that a "real" sewing chair? I'm looking to find a good chair, but not sure where to start looking - wondering if a regular office chair will suffice. forgot about the thingey you sit on, too - did you tell me that was good for exercising your core? Balance? (I forget!) See you soon! MicheleReplyDelete
Michele, I took a studio design class in Houston with Lois Hallock who wrote "Creating Your Perfect Quilting Space". She strongly recommends the Heavenly Sewing Chair and had one we could sit on--yep, it's great! www.heavenlyseating.com Not inexpensive but wonderful. I sit on a Dyna-Disc, easy to find on Amazon.com, etc. and it helps with core stability. My chair is a basic office chair from Staples or Office Depot, nothing special. Come by any time.ReplyDelete
Yay, Barbara! I'm looking forward to following you and see what happens here. I have so enjoyed blogging and especially the new friends I've made through it. The quilting/blogging world is pretty phenomenal. Happy New Year to you!! :)ReplyDelete
A new blog for the new year! Looks like a great start. I will follow to keep up with what you are doing. I love the studio - mine never looks that clear. Maybe I need to work on that for a while!!ReplyDelete
Susan, it took hours to get the studio ready for these shots! It may never look this organized again. I still feel like things aren't quite right but I'm sure I'll get used to it! Thanks for joining me here!!ReplyDelete
