Every year I pick a word to focus on and the word "Balance" seems to be perfect for me. 2013 was a whirlwind of non stop activity and this year will be double fold.
Ahhh! Such is the life of a traveling quilt lecturer and instructor.!
I like to be busy, it makes life interesting and keeps me out of trouble!
This is the year I will start to become more mindful of what I am eating. Extra weight on those hips does not make for easy lugging and heaving of all those suitcases at the airport.
This is also the year I need to balance my work schedule. Working 13 hours days and not sleeping well because the brain is in super drive only brings on those dark under eye circles.
So what have I started to do about this? I am scheduling "me" time in my day. I forget about "me" a lot and am that energizer bunny that doesn't stop. I eat at my desk, or work station or wherever i am working, creating or sewing. That has stopped. I actually sit down now. At a table.
I am taking one thing at a time until it becomes a healthy habit.
I have been working away on creating new classes for "Painted Applique".
Keep your eyes peeled here for an update on what will be happening with these pumpkins in an upcoming 2 day workshop . Sherry Rogers-Harrison and myself will be teaming up teaching a 2 day workshop for MQX this year. In a very soon future blog post, you will get to see these beautiful pumpkins set into a quilt.
In a few weeks I'll be leaving for Phoenix, AZ to teach for the AQS Quilt show there. In the All Star Review, I'll be demoing how to do Painted Applique with this cute Fishy quilt.
Little Bird workshop has "Sold Out" at the AQS show. Good News? You can always suggest me to your guild for this workshop!
I have been very busy making kits for upcoming classes!
End of February take me off to Belize, Mexico, and Honduras where I'll be teaching on a cruise. Good Night Moon is going to be so much fun for these ladies to be working on. I'll be sure to show class pics!

We've had some below zero day and nights here and my little Zoie is fashioning her new coat from her Grandma and Grandpa's gift for Christmas. Love the quilted bones in the coat design!
