Summer Skids Into the Finish Line

Wow, what a summer. It's been such a whirlwind of activity from start to finish and then I realize that it was October 14th and I was amazed. The summer festival and fair seasons are over and the new fall and winter ones begin. I had such fun this summer meeting people and exploring the life of being an independent artist and all in all I like it.
I like the push to complete projects the night before the packing and prep The not knowing what's going to happen or who you might meet. The friends who always support you coming out and finding you in all sorts of places and the new people you meet that can make your whole day when they say how much they love your work and that they are excited to see you again. Yep, festivals were a blast and I'm looking forward to June when I return to one of my all time favorites Faerieworlds.

But for now, well it's keeping track of work so no ones orders slip through the cracks and staying one step ahead of the next. I am so appreciating my clients ordering quilts that keep me every busy in my studio as the rains begin to fall again and the leaves outside my studio window change and fall to fill up the gardens. I will have to take breaks to rake and prepare the gardens for winter and I know it will fill me with joy. Fall brings many changes to our lives but the promise of Spring awaits us all, but for now I shall work to help make dreams come true for those who are trusting me with their special quilts and such for family and friends from tailgate quilts to birthday dresses it's a true joy that fills my days.
