This is where you would find me today, on the eve of my first blog. Isn't it heaven to just be able to spend the afternoon watching the kids in the pool in a comfortable chair preferably with a nice glass of wine....but then who would make dinner?
I am excited and a little anxious to share my little piece of the world with you.
In addition to being assistant "chief cook and bottle washer" at LakeHouse Dry Goods, I am a quilter, a quilt teacher, a cub scout den leader, president of the local quilt guild, a mom and a wife.
My life is somewhere between "Oh The Places You'll Go" and "Leave it to Beaver".
I just plain love quilting, the fabric, the process and all the wonderful people I meet along the way. I'm lucky enough to be able to be gainfully employed in an industry I love. If you call LakeHouse, you are probably speaking to me. I get to take your "where can I get your fabric" questions and talk to some really interesting shop owners and customers. If you can't get me, I'm probably on the phone with Holly working on our next crazy idea or we're out at some eatery for a meeting, 'cause if you've read her blog, you all know..."it's all about the food".
I love to start a new project...I often work on my own designs, sometimes I make a Holly quilt, sometimes I look to the many talented ladies who have published books and patterns. There's always a quilt in progress....and usually it's using LakeHouse somewhere in the quilt, if not everywhere.
One such quilt is used in my banner and comes from Alma Allan and Barb Adams book Home Sweet Home
These are only 4 of the 9 house blocks in the book and this quilt is made entirely from LakeHouse fabric (surprised??) This was quilted by my friend Lorre in Brussels (thank goodness for large luggage) and hangs in my living room. There are other wonderful projects in this book, so add this one to your library.
More projects and stories from the land of LakeHouse will come in future posts, so stayed tuned!
Hugs and Stitches!
