I love this time of the year, reading all the best-of lists that are published or listening to the best-of radio shows. It's fun to look back on the past year and to think about the possibilities for the year to come. It's really a strange dichotomy of recalling the past and anticipating the future all at the same time. Frankly it should make me a little schizoid, but instead it makes me smile.
This week I thought I'd share some of my highlights from the past year as well as plans or maybe just hopes for the year to come.
I wanted to start off with a mosaic of some of the projects from my book, Fresh Quilting: Fearless Color, Design, and Inspiration.
Stitch Lab,1000 South First Street. If you've never been to Stitch Lab you are in for a real treat. The place defines the word eye candy. It's located in a refurbished old house on and not only is it fun and funky and colorful, but they sell the best, most contemporary, perfect for quilting, crafting, any-which-way-kind-of-sewing fabrics there. I'll be there along with copies of the book and the original projects from the book. Want to see the Honeycomb Hexagon or Nate's Quilt up close? Come to Stitch Lab this Sunday at 5:00. Also, I'm going to be teaching some classes this Spring at Stitch Lab and though I plan to post about that here later in January, all the class info will be available at the book event. I hope to see you there!
