First, Happy Birthday to ME! It was a FAB-O day spent with waking up to a special card and goodies from my hubby, a surprise visit from my favourite Auntie and great lunch with my Sis; but enough about me:)
This is my regular position these days...I never thought doing 5 blocks of the months would marry me to my studio...well of course I did - it was on purpose!! I'm in love with fabrics, stitching (ask the callus on my finger) and all things to do with quilting. I sleep, eat and breathe it. This is what I was born to do...be a quilter. Since opening and starting this business, when asked what I do, I've started saying "I'm a quilter by trade" hmm not sure if this is a "trade" per se but that is how I feel and that is who I am and that is what I get paid (not much) to do...so in my books it's a trade.
I love being surrounded by inspiration by my bloggy blog friends and being connected to online communities all over the world - it's truly an amazing gift - this social networking online world and YOU commenters, friends, encouragers and die-hard quilters alike:)
Sew, these days have been spent working on the 100 pies and tarts blocks I have to complete this month (big shout out and thanks to Kathy B for helping me), one of the cutest Truly Scrumptious Blocks, the most adorable sleigh in our next Crazy Christmas block, 2 amazing villages to visit in our next month of Hocus Pocus Ville as well as the new journal blocks in Life is Beautiful. These 5 boms in my life are what makes Valerie's world go round and I LOVE them!!
If you have any suggestions for the next chapter of block of the months for Pastimes Online, leave me a comment or send me an email with your ideas as I'd love to hear them. Until next time, stay happy and creative.
