It’s such a beautiful early spring here in Ashburn, Virginia. I have my studio on the top floor of my townhome and it includes two rooms plus a small section of my bedroom. Both rooms face the back where there is a wooded area. It’s lovely to have the windows. I have been working with my foot doctor for about six months now on a foot problem I had and am finally able to take some short walks on these lovely days just as spring pops out.
I got a new small Sony ZV-1 camera designed especially for vloggers for my birthday. It takes both videos with a fairly good microphone and snap shots. I used it for some of my last YouTube video I published about a week ago and it’s easy to use.
So I am thinking of taking it out with me when I go walking and, now that I have had my vaccine, to explore a fabric store not far from here that has expanded and even taken on Berninas as a dealership. We have a larger Joanne’s going in nearby too. These are great developments for me. For some time now, all the fabric stores were miles from here over very heavily trafficked roads. I love my dealership in Rockville, Maryland, but it is about 45 minutes to an hour plus from here over very difficult roads. Anyway, I am going to investigate the near one, though I intend to keep my dealership at the Rockville store for most Bernina things. My friend Anita, however, who has a vintage 1230 is looking for one closer by.
So this past week I have been doing some design plans for new projects and having fun in my studio thinking about landscape quilts and my history of experimental quilting while planning new videos. I have some exciting ideas for my next steps.
Sew happy everyone! I hope you can enjoy a beautiful spring in your area (or fall if you are down under) as it develops. Have fun in your studio!
