Twenty twenty woke up mid-January and said, “Hey! you there! hang onto your nickers it’s going to be a bit of a wild & fun ride. Kinda like those rickety sounding roller coasters that scare ya but are totally fun. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!
At the end of a delightful day teaching a friend to use her BERNINA, and fixing a friends machine I received the pdf of Color, Thread, and Free-Motion Quilting Learn to Stitch with Reckless Abandon. Not only did the smile grow wider the tears flowed a little bit. While I am a published author, and quilt designer publishing this book has a dreams really do come true experience to it. I cannot thank C&T enough. Over these last few weeks I’ve been floating a couple of giveaway ideas by a few friends. Ideas are definitely percolating over here.
Now for the Really Big News
Having an opportunity to share Big News is awesome sauce. Having the opportunity to share Really Big News is priceless. This is Really Big News.
My Sweetie and I are moving to Texas. Just outside of Austin.
You may now pick your jaw up off the floor. My Sweetie got a job, that he’s enjoying already. Our house is in contract, and we’ll close within the next few weeks. I am home packing and taking care of some details to make this move possible. It is so fascinating to see all of the details come together for a major life move.
The last few days as I’ve tackled some of the packing memories flood over me. It helps that I’m shredding my journals and sneak peeking some of the pages. I’m shredding the journals for a variety of reasons including a desire not to move them, wanting some control over how they’re handled, and not wanting anyone to read them down the road. I’d decided years ago to burn them so shredding is the next best thing. With all of the blogging I’ve done over the years there will always be a record of Teri Lucas.
The room that is toughest to tackle is my sewing room, as one can imagine. It is a creative space filled with memories, fabric, machines, magazines, books, thoughts, ideas, inspiration wall, thread, more ideas, creative energy and strong desire. Then there’s another room that’s tough to tackle. Oh Joy.
Keeping this quiet has been challenging to say the least. Kinda like telling you other news over the last few years. Phew…that roller coaster is clickety clacking.
I’m off to pack, edit, and enjoy this ride.
