I’ve been forgetting to mention that September is my UFO (Rebellion) Month. If you haven’t listened to the Driven To Quilt Podcast from September 4, you’re missing out on some great ideas that will free you from UFO associated guilt forever!
My husband used to nag me (just a little) about my quilting UFO’s, but he’s seen the light, I guess, and now realizes that they are a part of my creativity, as well as evidence of just how much creative energy I have. If you’re feeling guilty about the number of UFO’s in your quilting room, listen to the Podcast, then go out and get yourself a “UFO’s are Creativity” shirt in honor of UFO Month. You deserve to be proud of your creative spirit!
Not that this is a bad thing, but I’m in the middle of the final editing for the Machine Quilting—Master the Basics CD Workshop. There hasn’t been much time for real quilting ’round here this last week. My review and beta testing team has finished their work, and suggested some valuable improvements to the program. I had hoped to have this ready for release in August, but you just can’t rush these things, so I’m looking at October 1 as the release date now. You can find out more about the Workshop on CD, see a preview of the workshop, then check back in October to order. Sign up for the DreamWeaver’s Quilts Newsletter to be the first to know when the CD is ready to order!
