Here we go! A new day in a new month, the last month of the year. Can we say 2014 flew by? I think it did. I’m glad most of it is a blur, a bad one at that. Now it’s time to pull up the big girl pants and forge ahead. I have quilts I am personally working on, waiting for my jobs, getting creative again, and I've a Christmas commission to do. I’m looking forward to doing the commission. It’s been a long time since I’ve done one. Let’s see if I can make up some the the creative stuff I’ve missed out on for the year. It’s going to be a busy December. And that’s okay.
I’m working on my quilt blog. Wanting it, at least, set up today. Until then,
here’s a picture of my longarm machine. I’ve named him Leonidas from The
300 movie. I wanted a name that showed a dedicated and hard worker.
Dependable. Take no prisoners. Thus, I have blessed it so.
I practiced with three small quilts. One of mine and two made by my mom.
This one is mine. You can see the layering of the final piece. The quilt top
I pieced, the white batting, and the red backing fabric.
Close ups of my quilt. The top and the back.

I’m also still scaling back on the stuff in my apartment. That will be an
ongoing process but I’m feeling better about it. I will be making some scrappy
quilts of my own so that I can creatively get rid of scraps and fabric I know I
will never use. They may or may not be for sell. We’ll see. So get your December
on. The year isn’t over yet.

I keep saying it. Time flies by whether you're having fun or not. We are into the last month of 2016. And even though the bulk of this y...
Been a crazy week. My friend painted the bedroom I'm in and it's almost done. I've been sleeping on the sofa in the family room ...
Yep, weird week but I made it. Got back to sketching, prepped my next Redwork piece, painted in the sketchbook. Maybe I can fill it up this ...
