Back in the Saddle

It has been a season of remarkable events around here; some wonderful, some worrysome, some trying and traumatic, some delightful and joyful.  Life changing and "change of life"-ing.  And sometimes all those things at the same time.  My score on that chart of stressful life events is literally off the chart.  Suffice it to say I've been flying under the radar, hovering, waiting for the chance to land, get up on my feet and get going full swing again.  Super-grateful for family and friends; people who inspire and bouy me up.  Thanks and love to you all.

Back in the sewing room this week, I've paper-pieced 208 pickle-dish points, sorted through some vintage patterns from my Mom's sewing room (oh, those aprons!!) worked on a book, and started getting things in order for Riley Blake Designs' Fabric Fest, coming next September, where I'll get to teach some of my favorite "Snippets" using their laminate fabrics.  The UFO to Go! (portable design wall) has been a hit, and I just posted a new tutorial on Cutting Corners today using some of these sweet fabrics!
Cutting Corners with Riley Blake Designs(Getting ready to make some more snippets!)  Basically, this will be the class I'm teaching at Fabric Fest - We'll make several of these fun projects, and as always, class will include many of my tips and tricks that make sewing "sew" much fun.  Are you going?  Registration opens in a week!  Check out the details here:  www.fabricfest2013.com

Happy Quilting!
