Well.... It's been a few months since I've had the chance to get going on the ol blogger and I do apologize....... Stuff has been going on: frog poo on my spigot, flowers bloomin and ..........mostly workin at the greenhouse( full-time plus hours!!) the past months also..... getting ready for my guild quilt show(finishing client quilts,sewing hanging sleeves on my own, getting my stuff together for my vendor booth!) that has now come and gone............. so I have been busy!!!!!!
The above 2 purple flowers are lovies I've brought home from the greenhouse....passion flower vine and a delphinium. Needless to say I've drug home quite a few specimens ..especially when the 50% off hit ( we don't get a discount normally...shame on my boss!!) Today I called off , thunderstorms predicted and I hate being in that greenhouse during a storm!!!!!!! My last day is Thursday anyway .Next week I go back to Chicago to work at the Merchandise Mart for Hinson and Co......they are expanding and remodeling their showroom space and were in need of some experienced temporary merchandising help . This should be fun because I will be working with and across the hall from previous co-workers... I couldn't ask for a better temporary gig!!Uh.... not to mention all the discontinued fabric samples I get to drag home!!Tragic, really!!!
I love connecting with other creative people!I am a Sales Rep for APQS Long-Arm Quilting Machines as well as run a Quilting Business which enables me to help people finish their quilt tops.My primary focus is fiber and I enjoy all aspects of it.Quilt history and Art quilts are another interest of mine along with collecting antique and vintage quilt parts.I live with 4 cats, 3 dogs,8 chickens and my Husband who is a Godzilla/gamer/Theater geek.We live on a small farm and enjoy riding our motorcycles as much as we can in the warmer months......even though we should be mowing or gardening!
