2013 in Review and Changing Seasons

Well friends the year is coming to an end. My family is about to embark on a new season of life. We are preparing to move to a different home this Saturday (hence my lack of posts). Moving can be such a pain but I am excited for the chance to start fresh and hopefully establish a bit more order in our home. I have been making many trips to Goodwill and it feels so good to clean out and purge.

This year was jam packed with lots of quilting, design, fabric folding, website development, learning, and growing. Some difficult times came with the news of my nephews disease and you all have been so supportive. It’s amazing how quilting can bring together strangers from thousands and thousands of miles away and build long lasting, supportive friendships. Thank you for being here and for always encouraging each other!
