I tend to do my quilting at the end of the week and on the weekends so I might have picked the wrong day for Millie’s pictures. Also, I have a feeling that Millie is going to be wearing much besides quilt sandwiches until I return from Sweden, but we’ll see. Here’s Millie today:
There was a bunch of hemming to be done today for B. and Millie is the perfect assistant. I hate to do alterations/repairs, but everytime I sit down to do some, I enjoy using/learning a different stitch or foot on my sewing machine. So, perhaps I only think I hate repairs…and forget that I don’t? There is real satisfaction in seeing the alteration pile disappear or, at least, shrink.
And also, I’ve been working on publicity for our 2015 Art/Quilt Show:
As you can see, this is really an art gallery. It’s a wonderful show. I think the media doesn’t pay attention to us because they think only women of a certain age quilt. Media/corporations consider women who are a certain age as uninteresting, and, therefore, we become invisible, even though we are a huge spending power. I was blindsided by this when I turned 50. Let me tell you, mediocrity rises to the top in corporate America…but don’t get me started. I digressed. Quilters are all ages and there has been a large influx of millenials and gen Xers into our midsts in recent years. So please get the word out and join us at the show!
And, on a lighter note, did I mention that I bought ANOTHER carryon suitcase? I am an addict. Details to follow, I’m sure. Happy Quilting!
