Getting back into the swing of things……

I am getting back into the swing of things.  This week I actually spent productive time in the studio!!!!  The creative juices are starting to flow again for which I am very grateful.

Today’s work though is not actually in the studio, it’s sorting, organizing and packing up for a trunk show tonight.   Catawba Valley Quilters Guild has asked me to come and give my trunk show “From Here to There and Back Again”.   That’s one of my favourite programs to give!  It’s so much fun and filled with laughter to take that walk down memory lane from my very first quilt to current work.  I started quilting in 1988 as a very traditional quilter, along the way I moved into art quilting and have spent many years bouncing back and forth between the two, trying to meld the two worlds into one.

Of course the packing up is always interesting!  I start with this:

Did I mention that DH has often suggested I reduce this accumulation?  Just because this is on a California King bed and isn’t everything?  Why would I want to reduce?

Did I mention this does NOT include the table runners, or tote bags, or most of the journals…… sigh……..
Of course the goal is to reduce this jumble into a managable volume to carry, show, talk about and have fun with.  And I try to include the good, the bad, and the just plain UGLY!   Hey, I said this lecture was full of laughter!!!!!!

Okay, back to sorting now………and at least I made it up and down the ladder to take some of these off the walls without falling today!
