Life Happens ...What's been Keeping me Busy

Life happens - and always has lessons for us. Last 2 weeks we feared a very serious illness for my husband based on Dr. tests, etc. More tests and many prayers later - we are giving thanks it is not the case at all. Doctors become either so general or SO specialized, they all have tunnel vision in my book! Also found that regarding medical issues the internet can be both a curse and a blessing. Sew...cancelled out of the Denver show last week - but the Blizzard here in central U.S. wouldn't have let me get there anyway!
Lessons God taught me:
  • He is more interested in my trust than my understanding!
  • How many dear, supportive friends I have!

Been busy sewing...for a project that won't culminate until mid 2012. Exciting, fun, challenging. Now back to the regular grind of preparing for Spring Shows that start hugely with the big Sewing & Stitchery Puyallup, WA show early March.

Along with that - trying to make the transition from PC to MAC - ughhhhh!

BIG excitement is that I was invited to do a spot for the new It's Sew Easy sewing show on PBS that will start this June! The machine I'm to use for that should arrive today - so I can make my samples. My topic is bias, bias fur trim, etc. That is squeezed into March as well - along with THREE shows.

Tools I've fallen in love with EVEN MORE during recent designing and sewing ...
Japanese Snips
Even with the price increase due to steel prices, they are worth every penny of $25!

Roll the Gold Rotary Cutting Blade
Nice - just REAL nice - cut with ease through the sweatshirting and silk I stitch with so much!

Back to a quick newsletter - and SEWING!
