Short Work Week

I am back in the office today wondering where the week went? I am not complaining because I did have a nice long weekend. Have a couple of projects to wrap up. A binding needed and instructions written out. It weather will be getting in the triple digits so thats a good excuse to stay in the studio. How many of us creative people have time management problems ...? What's your best solution ?

New Pattern Spring Market

For all of my design friends heading to Spring Market in Portland I will miss. Send pictures please. I will miss all the new fabrics and trends. But will be at Fall Market in Houston. I needed to stay and work on my new patterns for new fall catalog and release.
My new applique quilt called "Rainbow Birds" is at Joyful Quilter being quilted now. Excited to see Pam do her magic. It is 9- 12" applique blocks. With a checkerboard border. Will be finishing it off with a prairie point border binding. Should be striking. Here is a look at the top. Will be available on our website when finished. Hopefully for a July premier.
Have a great week.

A beautiful spring day here and soon it will be summer. Thinking of all the designs I need to finish and get off the someday pile. So jump into spring and get to working.
Today I will be cutting fabric for my next show,
"Quilting in the Valley" in San Fernando Valley CA.
Here is my new apron pattern. One apron that is changable for each holiday using your favorite dish towel. The little pins button on the front of apron. Now only one apron in the kitchen instead of twelve?  Have a great week everybody.
