I've been taking a break from designing to give my creative juices some rest and work in other areas of my life. It's very strange to not have anything on the stretcher bars but it's an interesting exercise to not design for a few months. I've not done this since I started designing. I decided to take this "sabbatical" to see what happens. Of course, the ideas never really stop so the idea notebook is still growing. I am getting a big cross stitch project done and have been able to spend a lot of time in my sewing room working on some fun quilts.
This past weekend I taught a pilot class for my new design, "Serenity". This group of ladies from my "local" Chapter (70 miles away!) did a great job and here they are after two days of stitching! It was so fun to see the different colorways emerge on their canvases!
This weekend I'm headed to Orlando for the Sun Region Seminar. I'm taking advantage of Studio Time and have to decide what I will do - there are many options... I'll also be at Merchandise Night on Friday - if you're in the area, stop by - it's open to everyone, whether you're attending Seminar or not.
Until next time,
