Just a few thoughts on a sunny Wednesday afternoon

To say that life has been a little crazy would be an understatement of massive proportions.

From high points like meeting online friends face to face and attending Spring Quilt Market to the low points of losing both of our beloved feline children (our boy was 14 and our girl was 20), the last year has been a blur.

In addition to the pattern testing and editing work that I've been doing, I've also traveled to Ann Arbor, San Diego, and Salt Lake City in the service of following my sewing dreams.  I've met some truly amazing people, attended some super cool classes, and I couldn't be more thankful to have the support of my friends and family.

There are so many positive aspects of having the opportunity to work within the quilting industry, but the downside is that I can't share most of my projects for months after they've been completed.  Trust me when I say that there's nothing that I'd enjoy more than being able to tell you about some of the cool things on the horizon, but I really can't spill the beans.  They aren't my beans to spill anyway, and I'm not willing to risk my relationships to satisfy your curiosity.  I apologize if that sounds harsh, but I have entirely too much respect for the people that I'm working with to compromise my own integrity and beliefs.  Plus, it's pretty cool to be in on some of these secrets.

So, that's that.  With less than 3 months to go before Fall Quilt Market and a pair of kittens to now worry about, my intermittent disappearing act will almost certainly continue.
