Feels Good To Be Back

Wow!  I can’t believe I took that long of a break from blogging.  With my back injury and waiting for our house to be built I just couldn’t seem to get to it.  It felt like life was on hold.  I barely did any quilting. 

It was a long recovery but I am feeling so much better thanks to my physical therapy and I am back to doing the things I was doing before last October.  I still have to pace myself but that is my life.  We moved in to our house in the middle of June.  I am in love with this house but especially my studio.  No more sewing at the kitchen table and moving my project every time we sit down to eat.  It feels amazing to have a room that is all mine.  It was worth the wait!

Because every post needs to have a picture, here’s a little peek at the studio.  I bought these great shelves from Ikea to store my fabric and yarn stash.  The glass doors keep it dust free and I can see what I have.  It helps me shop out of my stash more.  The studio is still a work in progress.  I keep rearranging things.  

 

It feels so good to be quilting again and to be getting back in touch with all of you.  I spend time every day in my studio and I look forward to sharing my projects with you.  Thanks for all your kind e-mails while I have been away.  It feels so good to be back!
