Tuesday, January 1, 2013


I have been meaning to post for some time but this has been my focus. We moved! This is not a very good shot. It was cold and the sun was blinding. I think you get the idea though. A new house means lots of work. We had to do a ton of painting. Every room was a different primary color which was just not my thing. Then there is the job of unpacking and putting things away.

Things are a little sparse but for the most part it is starting to look and feel like home. We have so much more room here! I need to decide on things like what kind of rug I want under the table. I am also still curtain shopping. The house has a ton of windows. And somehow along the way it became 2013!
I am just now getting back into the swing of things- quilt wise. 2012 was a great year for me and I am hoping that 2013 will be just as good, if not better.
I have quite a bit of travel in the works to speak and teach. I am also working on several ideas for new patterns. Look for more wool projects too.
This is a peek at a block from a new quilt that is in the works. (Very wrinkled.)
And another peek.
Also, the new issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine will be shipping later this month and I have a project in it that I am really excited about. So now that you know what has kept me away, I better get to work! Happy New Year to all of you! I will be back with a post on wool and wool applique this week.
Happy Quilting, Dawn

  3. Your new home looks wonderful and it will be nice when you can sit back and relax and work on projects again. I can't wait to see the next issue, I still have projects I want to make from the old ones.
