Atlanta pix! To your right, me and “Meeting of the Geese,” and below is me and the most amazing Quiltin’ Jenny! Isn’t she gorgeous?
To your right, a gathering of Twilters: me, HollyAnne, Quiltin’ Jenny and HollyAnne’s amazing baby, Ian.
And below, signing books. That marvelous creature directly to my right is Miss Adelle, who drove up from FLA! To her right is Marie, one of the amazing Chattahoochie Evening Star quilters. What a great guild!
What newsletters do you subscribe to? I just signed up for Quilting Rainbow’s newsletter, which is quite fabulous (and not just because the current issue has a nice mention of Birds in the Air!).
Other newsletters I enjoy:
Meg Cox’s Quilt Journalist Tells All
Abby Glassenberg’s While She Naps
Jessica Skultety’s The Wonky Press (a modern quilting newsletter)
What am I missing? Let me know!
Seems like we’re hearing more from people who are leaving the quilt and crafting industry. Here’s a post about one quilter’s reasons why: http://kristawithersquilting.blogspot.com/2016/10/what-happened.html
There’s also a recent Crafty Planner podcast in which Sandi interviews a former craft business pro and podcaster Diane Gilleland (Crafty Pod) that’s worth a listen. It seems like a lot of folks are rethinking their decision to monetize their creative passions.
Thanks to Jane for sending me this link to a Leah Day tutorial on burying threads!
Just finished Harmony by Carolyn Parkhurst, which I liked except for the last ten pages.
I recently read a really quirky and fun nonfiction book by Amy Krous Rosenthal called Encyclopedia of An Ordinary Life.
And I finally finished (after a second try) Truly, Madly, Guilty. If you like Liane Moriarty, particularly her characters, you’ll enjoy this, perhaps with a reservation or two. The critics, it should be noted, have not been uniformly kind.
Have a great week!
