there is such a lovely power in quilts. a special energy that is joyful. the sun is stretching over the sky right now, a little after 6 in the morning. and i'm aching to get to the studio. since i've directed my focus towards the quilts, i've felt my anxieties fade, my sleep improve, my energy go up. i've changed around the workspace so that i have a circular flow and fabric organized by color. a window seat in the kitchen is where i will sew now. i love the flow of windows and light and airiness. i have tables in the showroom now too. to celebrate the process. to cut fabric into squares beside the finished quilts displayed and ready to sell. and i feel the energy building on itself. i'm trying to build a bigger presence for my quilts online. pinterest. etsy. i'm making plans for new and different quilts, new sorts of designs i've been sitting with for a while. i wonder what september will bring.

    1. thank you, haricot. if there is a particular quilt you like from my etsy page, let me know by the title or the listing number. i'll tell you the size and i'll figure out how much it would be to ship. they are a whole range of sizes.....i think the lap quilt would be the most reasonable for shipping. the bed quilts are much larger and heavier.
