Being a quilter in Central Oregon is heaven! We have 9 shops all within a 45 minute drive and they all have their own appeal. And now, I have added Portland to my quilting life! I will be sharing my shopping, projects, mistakes, successes and travels...all things quilt!...so come join me in my world of quilting, books, movies and restaurants!
I was so happy this past week...totally got my mojo back and enjoying the momentum. Except getting that anxiety producing text. I preface this with how wonderful it feels to know your adult children still share things with you and I wouldn't trade that for anything...but, REALLY...being a mother never stops whether you are in relationship with your children or not. Once that baby pops out you are forever linked. And, I am so grateful that they do not want me to find out anything second hand...that could get ugly, lol. My oldest laid down his motorcycle. He is an experienced rider, is a medical professional and still sh*t happens. When he knew he was going down he knew how to fall and so blessedly got some nice looking road rash but no broken bones. Oh well...I say this resignedly...because from the first day they pop out you as a mom start losing control over their lives little by little...and, that is as it should be :) I have to admit I did start lighting candles to the Craig's List god that he would sell that thing!!!!
And so...I quilt...I finished my little wall hanging that I got at the Quilt Knit Stitch in Portland last year. Click the link for this year's show information
...and I finished a Buttermilk Basin candle mat.
I love Stacy's designs!
It was so exciting to see what the Material Girls have been up too. I am always encouraged to get off my duff and start stitching after I see what everyone is working on...so many UFO's are flying off the shelves!
