Creativity Longarm Quilts

Longarm Adventures and Life Changing Updates

Life has been wild the last few months.

One major thing that happened: I got a longarm! I’ve been dreaming of owning my own longarm since I learned how to quilt on one almost 3 years ago. I’ve been renting time on the longarm at Textile Dream Studio, if you’re in the Bay Area and want to learn, Sue has a great program to get you started. Eventually, my needs changed. Through a lot of scheming, and the generosity of my “angel investor” AKA mom, I’m not the proud owner of a Handiquilter Fusion. It’s taken over the room off our kitchen and I’m totally in love with it.  I’ve spent the last few months setting it up, learning how to tame it, getting some wholesale business accounts open with thread companies and batting companies and the best part, quilting! There’s nothing I love more than seeing a quilt top come alive when you take it off the frame.

Second major thing (which has kept me from blogging and doing most things): We’re having a baby! I’m just over halfway there and most of the yucky first trimester things have passed. I spent most of February, March, and April wondering if I was going to puke or sleeping. Good times. I keep thinking I will post something longer about our journey through miscarriage and health issues, but for now, I just want to get this baby here alive so I’m focusing on that. I do think it will happen though because I’m sure other people who have dealt with infertility and Hashimoto’s, the thyroid disease I

I keep thinking I will post something longer about our journey through miscarriage and health issues, but for now, I just want to get this baby here alive so I’m focusing on that. I do think it will happen though because I’m sure other people who have dealt with infertility and Hashimoto’s, the thyroid disease I discovered in the midst of all this, would like to get a little bit of hope. Healthy baby first, post about healthy pregnancy later.

Which leads me to the next thing: After the baby is born I really hoping to become a quilter full time. Or as full time as a newborn will allow. I’m in the planning stages, getting my web page ready and putting things out into the universe. You can’t get anywhere if you don’t make it happen, right? So this is my putting-it-out-there post. Now that it’s in the universe, it’s time to get to work.
