I’ve been quilting this week. It’s a great quilt, but the design I chose is very detailed and it’s taking a long time. Which gives me lots of time to think. Which is scary. I shouldn’t be allowed so much time to think.
It’s very tempting, here on winter break, to Start All of the Things. You know the tune: I’m going to clean out my studio, I’m going to start a dozen quilts, half a dozen knitting projects, plus I’m going to add all of these other new habits.
And about 3 days after I start back to work, I’ll remember why I don’t Do All of The Things during the school year anymore: my day job is a huge energy hog. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great job (most of the time), but for an Introvert to spend her day with Teenagers and Other Adults all day long…woof.
I did have one brainstorm today that I really do think is a good idea, and I started working on it, and that’s where the announcement comes in. I’m putting all of my old Feather Boot Camp class stuff together into some posts here on my website. I even made a banner:
Making a banner makes it real, right?
I was going to wait until I had it all ready to go, but I may go ahead and release the first class later tonight, but definitely tomorrow morning.
I know that I’m out of the quilting loop, and there are lots of other feather classes and books and whatever out there. I put all of this work in to the videos and handouts though, and even if they help just one more quilter, it’s worth the effort to get it off my hard drive and out in to the world.
But first I have to go quilt some more. I’ll try not to do any more brainstorming while I’m at it.
