Cleaning out the cobwebs

Today I am taking apart my sewing room and getting it ready to crank. I have two more craft shows coming up and I will need to focus, thus the cleansing and reorganizing. It feels good to tidy and set things up. A streamlined studio helps the creativity to flow.

In my process, I came across this quote,

"If I do what I've always done, I'll get what I've always gotten."

I don't want to "stay" where I am. I want to keep moving forward.
I've been wearing a turquoise wrist band that says, "Challenge Yourself".
The real challenge for me is daily life, living it to the fullest, with Art.
That's where I am right now. Working hard.

Wen Redmond class

I'm happy.

Saturday, I took a class with Wen Redmond. It was a great class.
She teaches strip piecing techniques that Nancy Crow teaches in her improvisations class. So it was a recap for me, but what a good time to take that again. It was refreshing and something I can use to my advantage now. This will fit nicely into my new look.

The Apples and Crafts Fair in Woodstock, VT was a wonderful experience. I sold many quilts there. I am now proceeding into two more crafts fairs. The Saturday before Thanksgiving, I will share a table with my fiber artist friend, Rosie Birch, at the Holiday Craft fair held at Thetford Academy, Thetford Vermont. Then, I share a booth with my woodworker friend, David Fall, at the Woodstock Inn's Holiday Craft Fair, Friday and Saturday Nov, 27 & 28.

Stop by to see me! : )
