Here is another photo taken 'Along The Way' (for the Sketchbook Project challenge) - a little pile of treasures on my side desk. :)
Today my husband, son and I worked like yoked oxen and an army of stevadores to finish getting the store space cleaned out. We are DONE (well, almost - I have to go back tomorrow to retrieve my vacuum cleaner 'cause we didn't have enough room to take it home today:). Seminole Sampler no longer exists except in fond (I _hope_) memory. The end of an era in local quilt making ... and in my life.
Now I just have to devote a month to six weeks of labored effort to tidying up my house and building a sewing room in our guest bedroom (my son's old room). I am actually looking forward to this, even though it will be hard labor. :P I look forward to being able to walk in and sew whenever I want ... and to actually making some of the designs I've dreamed up over the past 15 years. :)
I've been asked to teach stuffed toy making for the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild. I am by no means an expert ... but I do have a considerable amount of experience. It is actually a pretty large topic ... I've been sorting through the files I have here that I've gleaned from the web. I think I will do quite a bit of tutorial writing and sharing here on my blog as well as some hands-on lessons at guild. I have a stash of felted/boiled wool that has been calling to me for a while to be made into pretty things. :)
I expect I'll start the project (well, the tutorial part) after I get back from vacation toward the end of May. Watch this space as they say. Grin!
