I have been having TONS of fun and keeping quite busy in my studio...and I do have some really creative projects to share with you...however, most of my projects have been holiday gifts and many have not been opened by the recipients, so I am waiting to share them with you. I have been stitching, sewing, quilting, and doing machine embroidery...but you will have to wait a wee bit longer to see what I have been making. I have had a bit of a challenge with keeping Schatzi busy and entertained while I create...in fact, I had to move my sewing/embroidery machine to our dining room so I could keep an eye on her and still be productive - she is very inquisitive and into everything, so I rarely let her go up to my studio loft. I managed to finish up all my holiday projects and everything has been wrapped and mailed...and now I am back to Blue Ribbon Designs projects - which at the moment includes charting some new and exciting pieces. I am working hard to get ahead, as it looks like I might have some large commissioned quilting projects to work on in the next couple weeks. So, for now, since I can't share my creative projects with you just yet, here are Schatzi's three graduation photos...these were taken in Minnesota a couple weeks ago when she graduated from her formal training...and very, very soon, I will have some handmade items to share with you...I promise!
