So much has been happening lately! Here's my life the past week:
Trying to keep the house/shop clean & decorating our home finally! (Aka hanging art on the walls)
Going to fun Portland Modern Quilt Guild meetings - and planning for upcoming events (Sew, Swap & Sell this Sunday!) I was so inspired by this quilt made by Peggy Nato, from the pattern: Cheddar, No Crackers. I want to make one myself!
Also, Michelle created and designed this amazing quilt, Go-Retro Wool Quilt, that was just featured in Stitch magazine. It's designed after the vintage Cannonburg Temporama (I have the same set, you can see it in the coffee photo above). Yet another quilt to add to my list to make! ;)
I finished teaching a beginning quilting class at Modern Domestic. Emerging from that class are two new quilters! They did such an amazing job, here they are with their finished quilts:
While estate saleing, I fell in love with this vintage kitchen! I so wish I could have bought these cabinets and counter tops! They were in amazing condition...I might stalk who buys this home to see if they keep these or not! ;)
Ever since I interviewed Emily Henderson, I've been wanting to find/reupholster a sofa in blue velvet. While at Rejuvenation, this gem had just sold, it made me want to attempt a search for my own!
Tonight, I'm teaching at Collage - glass etching!
I finally gave in and bought a typewriter! I've seen many around, but I love this one! I'm going to use it to type on our Remnant price tags. It even has the case, owner's manual, and vintage keys (not the plastic ones). I can't wait to get new ribbon and start typing!
Why no crafts lately?!! I'd love to start working on many projects that are in my head and on my list, but....
What I really need to be working on is finishing two baby quilts that I'm incredibly behind on! Plus, making samples for new classes for both Collage and Modern Domestic! Also, this whole year, I've been in charge of the PMQG blog and there is lots to write for that this week! In addition, actually do my job as upholsterer/marketing/bookkeeping of Remnant. I'm really learning how to juggle everything and I'm so so grateful that this is my job. It's simply a dream! I can not believe that God has given me this incredible opportunity. If someone would have said that I would be working side by side with Chris like this two years ago, I would have said never! It's incredible to think about how much my life has changed, I do miss many aspects of my old life, but excited to see what will continue to happen in the future!
