1. Begin Making. Or, begin the work.
If it's uncomfortable, it's necessary.
Be open and supportive of others. I heard an interesting quote this weekend- "you never know who you're talking to"......and how true that is! It's happened to me so many times. Just this year I was being asked a bunch of questions about my job as a nurse, just in casual convo, and it turned out I was talking to the President of the Hospital! HELLO! I was so grateful I didn't complain or act like a whiny beotch. LOL! WHOA.
Speaking of being supportive, I've met so many amazing designers this summer and fall I just have to share with you a few of them below.
My friend Amy Bradley has opened her pattern studio Purple Pineapple Studio, and is selling these postcard style quilt patterns for a few bucks. They are all easy to understand, modern, and fresh. I just love Amy-she wears a purple pineapple headband on her head when at events. My kind of gal!
Lysa Flower has been creating her empire over the past year, and I can't wait to see where she takes it. Her Cassette Tape pattern is one of my faves E V E R, and now she's launched a Nintendo mini quilt pattern called Control Freak.
She is also a surface design artist as well, and has her own fabric (in photo above).
She also answers all my annoying questions with smiles and turd emojis, so naturally I adore her.
I have a ton of fun stuff to share with you this week if I can just find the time to sit at my computer. We totally need some sort of voice recognition/ blog post writer thingy where you can speak into your phone as it types the post up for you, complete with photos attached. I should invent that right? Or did somebody do it already? Bahahahaha
