Okay, this is a boring way to begin blogging again, but I have had more than one friend point out that I need to list where and when I am teaching on my website and on my blog. So here we go. This is to the best of my ability a full disclosure of what I am doing and where.
The Quilt Show—Denver, Colorado
Friday Afternoon August 25, 2016
I will be taping a show with Ricki Tims and Alex Anderson. I have heard good things about this experience. Did you know that the show is taped before a live audience? I did not. That certainly ups the nervous factor. If you haven’t seen the short segment I did with Ricki last fall at the International Quilt Festival, you can by going here. People have told me it is a good interview, but I can’t get over the fact that a bird built a nest in my hair, and no one told me about it. Watch it. You’ll see.

There a few other teaching gigs that are in the works, but no contract has been signed, so I will save them until they are done deals.
If you would like more information about any of these engagements, please contact me via my about page on this website. And if you are at any of these events, please come by and say hello!
Look up Micah and Nicole in Boulder when you are in Denver if you have time. They would love to see you again. Leo is almost 6′ tall and very artistic who would love to see your classwork. I will send him your blog today. Congrats on your beautiful new book and your very busy schedule. Sounds like fun. Carole
Nicole emailed me. Hopefully we can figure something out. It is a quick trip with most of it being about work, but you never know!
Wow, busy lady. I’m looking forward to your visit to Houston. I took a class with you last and I’m already signed up for Artful Oven Mitts.
I think everyone is as busy as me, they just don’t post it in a blog for everyone to see. Thank you for signing up for my workshop. Please say hello!
Thanks for the beautiful update. I am especially excited about your book. See you in Paducah!
Thank you Marla! I hope you are your husband enjoy Kentucky and I will see you in Paducah!
You’re coming to Berkeley! WOOO!
This time I hope I’ll be less busy and actually get to take your class. And get my book signed!
And look at all those solo shows. GO YOU!
I love it when you show all your awesome quilts in one post. You inspire me all over again.
Does it intimidate you to have your schedule all laid out in advance for you, so far ahead? Or is it more comfortable to know where and when things happen?
Carrie- It is always good to hear from you! I actually love the feeling of having the schedule all line out. It feels do able. I am always afraid I will forget something and end up on plane to no-where. I hope you quilting is coming a long. Enjoy the rest of your summer. We are out in McCarthy right and I just got a new floor is my little plein aire studio! It is looking good.
Oh excellent! Yay for new plein aire studio!
My quilting is going well. I am fostering kittens right now so it’s on hold for a bit, but I wanted to practice better control so I am working on straight lines. That sounds boring doesn’t it? But I’m a little wobbly. I actually like wobbly, but I want to be wobbly on purpose.
Wobbliness with intention! I like that. Good luck with your kittens. I love kittens!
