I mentioned a while back that a friend of mine was opening a quilt shop. I knew she was quilt savvy, and I expected she could do it, and she really, really did! What I did not expect was how much her shop opening would affect my life, but it really, really has!
My lovely friend, who's name is Maryann, has asked me to teach at her shop, and also to help her write some patterns. Of course I said "yes"!
The past few months have been busy, busy, busy with making samples for upcoming classes, testing, writing and illustrating patterns for printing, and actually starting to teach. I'm also the official shop photographer and newsletter writer.
As part of the shop staff, I got to attend a local fabric expo where fabric distributors were showing all their latest fabrics, fresh from the Houston quilt market. Oh how my hands were itching to fondle every single line of fabric!
It has been a great experience to be a part of this growing quilt shop. However, it has required me to re-think my priorities on where I spend my time. I have half a dozen blog entries written in my head, and no time to write them. I may get back to frequent blogging at some time in the future, but for now things will have to remain pretty quiet around here.
Thank you to all who have read and written comments on my blog. I will miss that interaction, but I will continue to stop by and read what you have been up to on your blogs.
