December and January





















I just can’t believe it is already the 10th of February! The New Year has come and gone and the evenings are getting lighter but the cold and snow here in Ohio just keeps coming.
Life has been full of great adventures. Aimee my youngest graduated in early December and now has a business degree. She plans to return to school in the fall. It was wonderful to have all my kids home as well as my parents.
Early in January we all went to Seattle for five days for the opening of my quilt exhibit at the La Conner Textile Museum. The exhibit consists of 30 pieces of my work and will be exhibited until March 25. It was so exciting to see so many of my students at the opening and to be able to share my story behind my quilts. I will be teaching at the museum later in the year.
We also took in our favorite sites and experienced amazing meals while in Seattle. We love Tom Douglas’s restaurants so treated ourselves to many fresh fish meals.
Back at the office we have been very busy with the new BOM and teaching kits along with writing new books and making new pieces. I was home for 8 weeks so also did a little home renovation.
I left this morning for Montana to teach. It was hard to leave home after nesting for a couple of months but now I am on the road I am excited to share my handwork and meet new and old friends.
I plan to share on a regular basis so keep popping back regularly or sign up for notification when I blog
Keep warm!
