much has been happening in my little world. at least for me it's alot. changes. major newness. and uncertainty.
it has been 2 months since we lost edgar. and he's never out of my mind. he's part of everything i do. at first i was devastated and paralyzed. unable to work or do much of anything. now i'm working, in fact i'm swimming in quilts and fabric. but change is coming....to both home and studio.
recently we have become involved with a couple of great dane rescues. i have never had a rescue dog, but now i feel like our lives are in a place where that is more reasonable. and there are so many wonderful danes that are begging for the love and security we can offer. we have found a lovely guy who was found starving and being used in a horrible backyard breeding situation. he is loving and sweet, just not crazy about cats. so, he's coming tomorrow to have a little test run with us. to see if we can convince him that cats are ok.
and quilt tops are piling up and quilting them on my little kenmore is no longer even kind of feasible. megan has been busy quilting as well, but there is only so much she can do with her busy little family. so i've found a second-hand quilting frame and machine that will take up an entire room in the studio. i'm fortunate to have the space to accomodate it, but i'm nervous about the transformation and the commitment. to say nothing of the frustration of figuring out how to use it.
so, my weekend is full. and my nerves are aflutter in anticipation. next week will be full of new challenges for us!!!
