New Year – New Beginnings

My new year started out with some of Idaho’s gorgeous scenery! I am definitely ready to make spending time in the beautiful mountains a priority this year.

With the temperature hovering around 1 degree, the frost from the hotsprings created some incredible designs on the rocks and fawna.

Two of my passions; mountains and quilting bring me such Joy! Life should be about Joy! We seem to get caught up on all the little stuff that really is insignificant in the whole scope of life.

I have made resolutions in the past to try and work on goals for the new year, but this year I have no resolutions. I hope to start each day with intent, to enjoy my passions, to be so thankful for my abundance in life, and for all the Joy I feel!

This is one of the stunning quilts I quilted before Christmas. It was so stunning that the picture does not do it justice. The close up of the quilting was a bit difficult to see but hopefully you can get an idea of it.

The following quilt was made by a 96 year old! I hope I am still enjoying my passion at 96!

I also worked on a great tshirt quilt!

An antique quilt made by a 92 year old was also on my frame. Speak of Joy and passion!

Check out Idaho Sew and Vac in Boise for their upcoming classes. I will be teaching a beginning class. So if you want to learn the basics, this is a class for you. I will also be teaching an intermediate quilting class so you can expand your quilting skills.

Two different block of the month classes will be offered and a stash buster mystery series so you can use up some of your fabric collection.

I love teaching and connecting with you, so look forward to some great time in the classroom! It is always good to learn and enjoy your time doing what you like.

Do not wait until the last minute to get on my quilting schedule. I fill up fast and then there is a longer wait time for you to get your pieces quilted.

Remember, life is a Joy! Embrace it! Live with intention! It is much better than the alternative.
