Just a little excited.
I made myself this name tag (in May) to help ease my anticipation.
I guess the classes are being assigned differently this year. So I had to pick an A, B, C choice for each time slot and I'll find out Tuesday which I ended up with and have the next month to prep my supplies.
Somehow I also ended up volunteering to co-host this...
Confession... I've never been part of any kind of a swap or round-robin or quilt-along anything.
I had gathered from others blogs that this could be a neat thing to do.
So I asked in the Sewing Summit forum on Flickr about it and this lady (who I don't know in person) answered and we decided to host it! It's been really neat to see gals from all over just mosey over and join in the group, post pictures and make a bag of their own for someone they've never met either. I think it will be a great way to meet people. Already I know the names of 30 women and their general taste in color and sewing style.
I've already made my bag and filled it with goodies in shades of purple, green and blue. I'll post about it next week. Every aspect of this project has been a good challenge for me. I'm not usually a purple girl.
I also designed our little logo thing. Just because it needed one and I had to post it on Instagram. This is how I did it. I just laid out 4 of my fat quarter fabrics in similar colors to the Sewing Summit logo and then added the wording via the incredible Rhonna Farrar Designs App. Go check it out!
Once upon a time I bought all this fancy lighting equipment. Now it seems like so much to set up, so I usually just do this... a curved piece of poster board and my two Ott Lights. It takes great pictures and usually only needs minimal Photoshop-ing afterwards to adjust exposure. Also I don't have to clear off the whole desk every time.
Speaking of which I'm dying to paint the whole studio furniture with chalk paint. I'm going to test it on a small piece first to see how it turns out. I need more white in this room.
