Yipee Skippee!

At long last, my computer glitches are resolved, the wonderful rush of business during the holidays is lonag ago complete, my husband’s relapse with Meniere’s is back under control and I can finally get back to visiting with all of you. I have several things to share with you, so I will just “bullet” each one to expedite all the things I want to say :

  • First, please take a look at the Machine Quilters Expo website! This fabulous machine quilting conference will begin April 12 and will provide not only fabulous quilts but also wonderful classes, including mine, LOL! The conference is held in Providence, RI and has a long history of providing wonderful learning opportunities for all levels of experitise and machines. I will be teaching Blog Cabin Blocks, a course on business blogging as well as Putting the You in YouTube. This course will discuss how to create YouTube videos to promote your business.
  • I have added THREE really cute items to my embroidery business. You will see pictures of these on the site today. They include a quilted and monogrammed bag tag, doggie bandanas and an adorable portable tea or sweetner caddie to keep with you in your purse or tote. The patterns were designed by DigiStitches and are really darling.
  • I added pictures of one of the art quilts that I completed for a customer during the holidays. I am so proud of how this worked out…it is so much fun to create designs “from the front” of the machine. Also, the precious puppy modeling is my dog niece, Mattie, of Asheville, NC. Attie is modeling a doggie bandana in a cowboy novelty print which slides over her dog collar. Very spiffy! These can be monogrammed, of course!
  • Another item that I am showing is an order that I did for Veronyka’s, a lovely salon here in San Antonio. Please notice that one of the items is basically plastic and it embroidered beautifully.
  • If you live in the San Antonio area, I will be teaching a business blogging course for the North East Independent School District Community Education beginning on Feb. 17 for three class sessions. If you have your own business or just want to learn the basics of blogging, please join us by registering for the class on the NEISD website, clicking on Community Education.
  • The baby quilt is my tip for today…simply take a cute panel, add borders, and, if you have monogramming or lettering on your machine, add some cute embellishments. In this case, I added “mommy’s girl” and  a “k” on the pajamas hanging on the close line. I also added some free motion designs, including a dragon fly. Fast, Easy and Fun…all the elements you need for a gift!
  • A picture of the personalized quilt labels that I will do for your quilt is part of the blog today, too.

I think that I have shared all my news. Hope that the New Year has been kind so far and that you are well. I continue to be thankful for all of my blessings, especially in light of the recent horrific earthquake in Haiti and all those who have suffered job lose as our economy struggles to improve.
