Although my new studio is prompting me to organize my time differently yet again, the 10 pieces above that are not finished yet are going to be what I want to work on in 2013 ...for myself, when I have the time. There were two from 2011 that are still sitting around and I really ought to pull them out and finish them up too (mini lonestar and colorwash heart duvet which will become a quilt). I'm thinking it might be better this year to have business goals that are my priority rather than my personal WIP being the driving factor. We shall see how it all pans out, but it will be an exciting year for sure!

On the business front I've got several designs in the works that I'd like to see materalize. Being in a new locale, my mind is swirling around ideas that will symbolize the beauty and happenings here.

Maybe this will be our Lucky 13!! Happy New Year!


  1. I think you're doing great!!! Keep up the beautiful work.
    Happy New Year.
    Always, Queenie

  2. Another good year for you. :) Yeah, business work needs priority, but your personal work is not in bad shape at all!

  3. Beautiful work, it blows my mind to see all of it on the same page! So much accomplished.

  4. Hi, I just found your blog when I visited Sew Cal Gal's and she reported that your Spinner quilt had been juried into Road 2 California. I met you at the WSQ show when you had just found out you won a ribbon. I was hostessing on Sunday and took your photo with your quilt. It is amazing. Congratulations on your continuing success.
