Early Morning Studio Time...



There hasn't been much time for sewing lately... or blogging, for that matter!  December was a full month:  we had visitors from Maine, Vermont, and California who spent the holidays with us as we rang in the new year.  School parties, cookie swaps, and Christmas shopping were also part of the festivities.  On top of that- as many of the readers of my blog may know - I started a new job as Editor of Quilting Arts Magazine.  So yes!  December was a busy month!

As part of my editorial duties at QA, I will be blogging through the Quilting Daily website, so this, my personal blog, won't be updated very frequently.  However, I just had to do a little show-and-tell from my early morning sewing this morning...

As Seen In Stitch magazine, Winter 2008

The linen twill patchwork tote which was designed by Susan Wasinger took about 1 hour to make, using all vintage fabrics from my stash.  I had just enough of the funky 1950's feedsack material to make the band of color without piecing a thing... just love it when something like that happens.  

My "studio" goal for 2012 will be to keep working in my studio on the weekends, even if it has to be at 6 am... and to hone my skills in the fiber arts.  So much fabric, so many ideas, so little time...  but so blessed to be doing what I love and living out my dreams.

Happy New Year!

Congratulations on the new position! I subscribe and love the magazine.
I read it in my newsletter email form Quilting Daily. I was also inspired to try your collaged bird directions with a little chickadee.

Having followed your personal blog for some time, I was delighted to learn that you'd be at the helm of "Quilting Arts Magazine." Even though we're in a difficult financial period, I'm continuing my subscription to QA. I'll keep following you here and now also on your new blog at QA. Looking forward to seeing your creativity blossom anew in this new area!
