July 16 2014 Quilting Newsletter

Good morning all, it is all well here at present. Crisp cool mornings that develop into beautiful clear wintery days.

I’ve been busy sorting out my sewing room (yes, again), trying to get some sense into where I STORE stuff so it doesn’t take me so long to FIND stuff! I’m sure I’m not alone with this dilemma.

Sometimes I think it’s a curse to have a large area for your hobbies as the larger the space the more stuff you fill it with. I’m going through a purge at present, and getting rid of stuff I’m keeping “just in case”. I’ve realised that really just in case is an excuse, and if I really need whatever it is, I’ll probably be able to pick one up easily. Well that’s the theory anyway!

I’m not selling any of my stuff, I have a couple of friends that are new quilters and they’ll love the goodies I offload I’m sure.

Last week I posted an article with several quilt quotes and sayings. These words are often a comfort to me and help to inspire me beyond my energy sometimes. I hope you enjoy reading them. Here’s the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art183702.asp

All quiet on the forum front – please remember it’s your forum and you are quite welcome to contribute to this site there. Here’s the link:
