Plum Crazy

A new pattern is coming soon.  I will introduce it at my fall retreat in Lawton, Michigan.  It's a simple quilt but very striking.

This next week I will be busy getting ready for the retreat and to go to the Art and Soul Retreat in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  This is something I have always wanted to do and I am so excited that I am getting the opportunity.  I am focusing on mixed media, watercolor and textile art in the sessions I will be taking.  I really can't wait!!!

I will be posting pictures here and on my Instagram account, 3 cherries on top.

Daily Change

Since the last week of June every day has been a surprise and filled with change.  We have moved from Michigan back to California and in that span of time and so much has taken place in between.

The movers were three days late coming in MI and took two days longer than they were suppose to which turned all of our well laid plans upside down and in a tailspin.  This move did not go smoothly or easily and I can say it feels good to have it behind us.  We are still unpacking boxes and trying to decide where everything should go and what we need to let go of.

My California quilt retreat was a great success.  It is always good to return to St. Francis and spend time with such dear friends and meeting new friends each year. Planning for the fall retreat in Michigan has begun in earnest and already looking forward to being there and seeing good friends and catching up with everyone.

Our children had a surprise welcome back to California party for us on Saturday.  It was wonderful to see everyone and to be able to have both children together.  The best part of being back in CA for us is being able to be closer to them.  What joy!

May the changes that are coming your way be welcome ones and bring new joys and delights to your days.

New Fabric

Scrolling through some of the artists I follow and saw these two lines of fabric that are new and I thought you might like to see the fabric I am falling in love with.

Each has started me dreaming of what I might create from them.  What do you think?

Have a wonderful creative day!
