Today is the last day of 2012. It has been a very fast and busy year. It has been a year of change for me with a sudden retirement which is a postive for me. It was time to get out of nursing which opened a new adventure in having my own quilting business. I have a wonderful and supporting quilt husband that I love dearly. Today is his 64th B-Day. I'm looking forward to 2013. It will be a fun year of quilting. I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year 2013. Happy Happy Quilting!!!

Yesterday was the 1st day of winter and was to be the end of the world. We must be still here because I'm writing this blog today. Now the days will be getting longer which will be nice. My husband wanted me to have a sign with name of my business on the road and on the mailbox. I will post a picture of the sign which turned out great. It helped to have the sign because on Monday I had a possible client come to the studio. She saw the Barn Quilt on the side of RV shed and then saw the sign just passed it. She said her GPS said she passed my house. It was great to meet Shari to talk about doing the machine quilting on her quilts that she designs and sells on her online business. The business is called Bear Creek Quilting Company in Salem OR. Last Sunday, we went to our neighbors Christmas Open House. One of my neighbors wants me to make a baby quilt for her 1st grandson. I would do the whole quilt which will be fun plus get paid for it. I'm working on the binding on my challenge quilt now. I got my photo stand and background last week. I will get it assembled so I can take a picture of the quilt. It will make it much easier to take pictures of quilts.

This is the last time in my lifetime that the date is all the same numbers. The next time this happens is 2101. I posted on my other blog about 12-12-12 because it makes me appreciate my life and to live every day as if it was your last on this earth.

I can't believe that today is the 1st day of December. I realized that I haven't written on this blog since Oct. I have been working on learning how to use my Quilt Artist by practicing on sampler fabric. I have put my challenge quilt on the frame before Thanksgiving. I'm having fun working on each block that has a boat in it. It is called Come Sail Away. Our challenge was "Your Dream Vacation" with a red with small dots/cream color as the challenge fabric. My goal was to do a Challenge Quilt for my guild. This quilt needs to be done by our January meeting. I did put in our Quilt Ink which is our newsletter about my business. I didn't think I would get much business in Nov or Dec. It takes a year to get customers so plan to work on getting out in the community to tell them about my business. Happy Quilting!!
