How is that two weeks has passed since I last wrote?
Instagram has proven to be good evidence of my time and what I've been doing even to me. I actually used it this morning to figure out what the heck has had me so busy. Oh yes. Vegas. Right. New fabrics. Yep. Then there are children. Several of them. Nursing. Done. Two weeks. Woosh.
I feel like I should explain Vegas. 'Cause that word has never been typed here. I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of sewing machine dealers at the Janome conference. Such a nice group. I shared my inspirations, my work flow, and what I'm working on next with my fav machine folks in terms of new projects and videos. It was also interesting to get a sampling of how they each run their business, teach their classes, use social media, etc. Everything is changing so much, no? How we gather and share information - fluctuations in our attention span. I feel like I'm witnessing such rapid change in how we trade stuff. Words. Images. Ideas. It's all so interesting. I've been thinking about it a lot lately actually. How and why I share, what I hope to give and get in each scenario. The pressure to have every little last social media handle linked on your site that I have yet to bow completely to and just using the ones that make sense to my gut and how my mind works.
This is not what I came here for.
Which is why I love to come here. Because this IS how my mind works. In a ziggyzaggy line.
I am here to tell you that Mary Anna will be three months old tomorrow and that my two new patterns are here, and that my two new tapestry kits are here, and that I am working on 3 new quilts with two new collections of sample yardage, and that I am thinking of about 2 more quilts, and that I can't get an embroidered zippered pouch design out of my head, and that I am enjoying the weather so much and that I wish there were more time for my garden, and that I listened to Alec Baldwin interview Fred Armisen on a podcast called Here's The Thing with my husband over coffee. It was really, really interesting and enjoyable.
Also to say have a good, good weekend. smooches, AM
