I am finally back. I am sorry to have been gone so long. I was in such a good habit of posting at least once a week, and some times more often. Now I have to start over building that habit. Isn't it interesting how easy it is to get off track! December was a very busy month with the holidays, as usual, but we also were getting ready to move, and that makes it extra crazy. We moved the week after Christmas so what a fun holiday! (sarcasm here)
We went from a large house to a very small house and two storage units. The trick is deciding what goes where. Then the next trick is remembering what you decided. Especially with a business. I had to basically close down for several weeks, and now I am up and running but with limited resources.
We are doing this because we are building a new home (with a nice new, larger studio for Jillily Studio, YEAY!) but it is not done, and we had to leave the other house, so we are in temporary digs.
We did not move far, just a few miles, so that tends to make you think it will be easier. Hum. False sense of easiness. (I suffer from this a lot--it is just my eternal optimism!)
Anyway, I am here now, and I have the studio set up in a 9' x 9' room. (Generally things are overflowing out into the hallway, but that's OK.)
Since the move I have done two trunk shows and one big retail show--Road to California.
Both events were wonderful! I loved meeting all the quilters out there and seeing all your great ideas--and sharing some of mine.
Today I will show you some pics of my booth in California.
I have some fun photos to show you from quilter's I met there, so come on back later this week!
It's good to be back!
