Convention Update

I thought I might find time while in Texas to update everyone on the new machine but wow the time flew by. Okay, so the cat is out of the bag, the new Husqvarna Viking machine is yes, indeed, the Designer Diamond and what a gem it is. The size of the machines blows everyone else out of the water. Go see for yourself, let me know what you think.

The trip started off bad, 5 1/2 hour wait for the plane, got into bed at 3:00 Texas time, which is 4:00 est, once we got out of bed Sunday it was non stop till we stepped off the plane on Thursday afternoon. Along the way I managed a cold, flying with a cold is not fun.

Now back to quilting, I actually get to be back on the long-arm on Thursday, and I'm almost done with my flip flop quilt, wow that one has taken me a long time to get done, keeping my fingers crossed I'll have it done by the 4th of July.

Convention Time

Well we travel tomorrow for the Husqvarna Viking Convention, part of me says "can't wait" the other part says "holy crap it's here already". The shop will run smoothly and the travel isn't a problem is everything that I have crammed into the 3 1/2 days we're there. I'm gonna try and post from the road but like I said, I've crammed 10 pounds of stuff in my 5 pound day sack!

Sewing MoJo

Just like Austin Powers I'm looking for my MoJo but this time it's my sewing MoJo. My mind has the want and the ideas but my body isn't playing along. Sleep, that's what this very tired shop owner wants. There's always tomorrow....maybe my MoJo will come home tomorrow....

Has anyone seen my Time? Where does it all go? I've read countless articles on setting time aside for things you really want to do, quilting, exercising or gardening but I still have the same question, where do you find this time? I'm still not done with the flip-flop quilt and my flower beds are only half weeded and now I need to get my act together and get ready for our upcoming trip to San Antonio for the Husqvarna Viking Convention. Okay, I'll admit I'm really excited about the trip, the new machine coming out is going to be so cool but the trip is more then that, it's getting away. While it's not a vacation because if there is one thing that you don't do when you're dealing with Husqvarna Viking is rest but it's going to be different then my everyday running of a quilt shop. Speaking of running a quilt shop, I've hired another person and have been doing most of the training myself, maybe that's where my time is going. It's an exciting time at the store with lots of changes and new stuff coming in, again, maybe that's where my time is going.

Another blog coming soon, I'm into something really cool, reading a book and learning more....I'll share later...

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. No...
