I wish I could blame it on just the recent freeze – gulf coast Texans can handle a Cat 5 Hurricane with a “bring it on” attitude but we are like the cowardly lion when it comes to freezing temperatures!
Or I could simply own up to the truth of being missing in action – and it’s not for lack of action! The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity. Everything from continuing to move things out to either storage or the RV to the not-so-exciting not-so-glamorous tasks of keeping up with business paperwork.
And then there’s been the secret sewing. In between all the preparations for reconstruction I’ve been diligently working on my last 2017 Island Batik Blog Ambassador project – hot off the frame this week with just the binding to finish – can’t wait to share next week – Jan 25th is my day for the Four Seasons Blog Hop!
And then there was the big freeze. Yep, the kind that causes power to go out and pipes to freeze, the kind that makes you glad you are a quilter! Having so many quilts on the bed ya feel like you can’t roll over for the weight!
Even though it appears the rambler has lost her voice do not be deceived! There’s lots of work going on behind the scenes that can’t be shared yet! Patterns are being written and soon to go to press, quilts are being planned for the upcoming 2018 Island Batik Ambassador program, trunk shows are being curated and several quilt shows and events are being planned! Oh, and there’s a house to be reconstructed in the meantime 😏
This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, looking forward to going from 20’s to 70’s in the same week! Warmer days are coming! 😎
