V and Co: What chocolate, a diet soda, and a good friend will get you


 Well first off isn’t Liz awesome? She’s even funnier in person. My “shipping department” is pretty cool, and she’s also a great friend. She saw how stressed out I was and even may have seen some tears when I listed off all the things I had agreed to do. This month is pretty much insane, (for me at least) between flying home for a family wedding, and teaching, and speaking at quilt guilds (hi ladies! can’t wait to talk!), and deadlines for undisclosed places, and then add other deadlines that just pop up because when you first said “yeah, I can do that.” you had no idea how insane your month was going to be. Add all other life things…and well Liz took one look at me and said “I have chocolate and diet drink. And do you want me to blog something for you?” I stared at her and said “What would you write about?”

She said “Well, we’ll see what I can come up with. And we’ll give it a shot and then go from there?”

So, she wrote a fun little blog post. And she’s a great voice for my blog. Perhaps we’ll have her come back for another blog post! 🙂

 While she was blogging for me, I was able to piece, quilt,  and

 bind my large one block version of my…

 kaleidoscope quilt. Which btw I’m also teaching this class at my local quilt store  today and tomorrow!

I used my Ombre stripe fabric (coming to a quilt store near you soon! seriously like in a day or so)

so far I’ve made this large block in lime and the pink… and I can’t wait to make it in the other color ways as well. I’m super SUPER excited about this fabric coming out!

Baby quilt size 40″x40″ instructions coming to a magazine near you soon.

The pink version is completely done…and well lets just say I love it.

This newborn quilt pattern will be in a magazine soon with instructions included. I’ll most definitely keep you posted…and I’ll ALSO keep you posted on when you can watch me on a quilt show website with a really great and awesome lady. See, I may be stressed but it’s all wonderful stress. And wonderful opportunities. I love what I’m doing. I promise to come by and pop in and just do an update of sorts, make sure to write about my funny crazy when I’m not sewing stories as well…so that way I can look back and smile at my timeline of events and well, maybe use this spot as a “journal” of sorts…kind of like I used to.

Everything will be alright. Sometimes we just need a little bit of chocolate, a diet drink, and a great friend to tell you “It’s okay.” 🙂

Thanks for reading.

We’ll talk soon. Promise. (okay, but I didn’t pinky swear so it might be Liz or me, depending on how well the chocolate works with getting me through all the other promises I’ve made!)
