Where’s Waldo and a Give Away…

I feel like a page from where’s Waldo. Between traveling, hauling everything out of the sewing room, putting my little monster together, hauling everything back in to the sewing room, getting patterns ready for publishing, and getting ready for summer sewing camps I’m exhausted.

A few of my patterns are already up at QuiltWoman.com with lots more to come. Be sure to stop by.

My little monster is finally all put together. Now to find the time to sew on it.

My sewing room is so neat and tidy. Even the closet is organized at the moment so I better share some photos now!

Not sure why I keep the trash can so close to the machine. Heaven knows nothing ever makes in it. LOL.

And just for creative inspiration, here are a few photos from my travels….

Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico. The view is breath taking.

What? Miss a detour through Roswell, New Mexico…Not a chance! This was taken at the Roswell UFO Research Center and Museum. A nice little museum packed with lots of information….and a really fun gift shop.

While visiting my best friend in Seattle I just had to stop by the Chihuly Glass Gardens again to see everything in bloom. It took my breath away.

Look! Mount Rainier is taller than the clouds! Now that’s a mountain.

Don’t be silly…Of course we also went to a fabric shop. Island Quilter was on Vashon Island, WA. You could only get there by ferry. The shop’s fabric shelves were set up like a walk through maze so you don’t miss a thing. Fabulous store!

In a nut shell that’s why I’ve been awol from my blog. So much going on behind the scenes. Lots of new patterns in the works to share with you soon.
