I know I've been absent from this space for a while now. As I've mentioned before, a slowdown in posting to my blog is usually indicative of how crazy the other parts of my life have gotten. This time is no exception. We've been dealing with gross, nasty, icky sicknesses being passed from child to child for the past 2.5 weeks. Work has been crazy busy with some pretty major org changes, business travel to Chicago (sorry to all of my Chicago quilting peeps, but every. single. moment. of my trip was scheduled), and the launch of a brand new website that's been occupying a great deal of my time.
But I did something today that I am just SO, SO excited about.
Have you seen this post on Heather Ross' blog? It turns out she will be teaching a 3-day fabric design course this July at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
The class is open to 17 people.
And I'll be one of them. Eeeee!
This is something I've been wanting to learn for a while now, but I had no idea where to start. I've also been looking for a good reason to visit Portland for the first time, too. So when I read Heather's post, I knew I had to make it happen. And it's going to happen, thanks in no small part to my mother who is covering the cost of the course as an early birthday present. Thanks, Mom!
I'm dying to know if anyone else reading this has signed up for the course, too. If so, please let me know! Oh, and if anyone has any Portland recommendations (where to stay, where to eat, where to shop, etc. etc.), please do share.
I've got a few draft blog posts in the queue highlighting things I've made over the past month or two, so stay tuned -- I hope it won't be so long before I post again. Hope you're all having a great week!
