Excitment In the Air

So much "Life" has happened since I last posted. The good news, nothing earth shattering happened at least if it did I've forgotten about it. I've just been very busy with little time to even sleep. Awhile back I posted my day job of 35 +years was becoming more stressful by the day. Well as of January that full-time job became a Part-time job. Yes, I know way back in October I thought my security blanket had been ripped to shreds. But while I was waiting for my replacement to arrive I got used to the idea and came to realize..."Maybe the Big Red "S" was actually doing me a huge favor after all. All I can say presently; Our heavenly Father above certainly works in mysterious ways, Thank you, Lord.
So what have I been doing? What is Next for me? Actually I am very excited!!! It's been 2 years since I bought myself a Long Arm Quilting Machine. I bought this for ME, with no plans to open a business, how could I? I was working 5-6 days a week. Plus my friend Myree had a shop who needed a Quilter, and I fit the bill I guess you would say. Anyway quilting at the shop fed my Long Arm Quilting addiction I loved doing those quilts, even the wonky ones. Every new quilt that came in was like getting a x-mas present, you never knew what was going to be pulled out of the bag. Then Myree had to move her shop home and she was able to start quilting the quilts herself. I just help her out a little bit now. I like Custom quilting and she likes E 2 E best, so she calls when she has a custom quilt she wants help with. Any who....when Life went south at the Big Red "S" I began to slowly realize it was actually a miracle. Now I would have time to do my own Customer's Quilts and let me tell you I can't wait to see what pops out of my First Customers Bag!!! I bet I'm up all night, not being able to sleep the night before my first consulation. Yep, it's offical. I'm going to be going into business very soon. I'm getting all the legal ends taken care of, setting up my accounting system, transforming my Studio, and Brushing up on my Quilting skills in my spare time. My business name will be Cityview Quilting as I have a view of the entire City of Portland and Mount Hood from my Sewing Room. 2010 is sure to be a good year. I'll be posting pictures of my Studio tomorrow, actually later today. Thanks for stopping by.
