STRESS SPELLED BACKWARDS IS DESSERTS?

It is stressful to be an entrepreneur, to build a business from your living room into a brick and mortar that is separate from your home. To be honest it is stressful just to get up in the morning and go out and live weather you have your own business, work for someone else or are retired. Life is full of stress!  The new location for Quality Quilts is on our property behind our home but it is still separate.  I was not aware that this would make such a difference to those out in the business community but it has, in a good and positive way. The stress is always there but that is not always a negative...

AND WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

What a weekend! Went to the local quilt show to have a look at Siren Song and found out she won 3 ribbons. One was best computerized quilting. The painter was here and painted the kitchen and dinning room. The last of the odds and ends are at the new storage site waiting for when we can build a storage shed on our property. Now to put up the artwork on the walls and putting  up the books that remain in what will be the hubbies wood working shop. Even the decks are being cleaned and the additional decking around and leading to "Quiltopia" have begun to be built by the hubby. We are seeing the light...

Siren Song is the name given to this beautiful black and cream quilt that will be hanging in this weekends Wildflower Quilt Guild Quilt Show.

Fran the Fabulous Fusion

Fran the Fabulous Fusion was brought into the new studio over a week ago and has been busy at work. When we took her apart we were able to bring most of her in large units. When we turned her on she ran like she was still in the house that is until I broke a needle and got her all out of time. I will be forever grateful for the training I have taken with Handiquilter educators and their info on how to order the tools and DVD on how to time the Fusion 24. It has saved me valuable time and so much money! You can not order these things from their website the educator called and when I called and placed...

CONSTRUCTION, HELPING OTHERS , and QUILTING…..OH MY!

It Begins!

The tree trimmers and landscapers have been here and a lot of brush was cleared from around the new studio. Three large truck loads of leaves went to the dump and the grapes and herbs have been planted. There is more landscaping to be done and of course decking to be built once the building if finished. Flooring, windows, lighting and decking materials have been ordered and are waiting to be delivered when the contractor is ready. The building is empty and construction has begun. It is unbelievable the changes in just two short days. I am mapping out where everything will go when we get to set the studio...

Will It Never End?

It has been a rough couple of weeks here at Quality Quilts with illness and still working on emptying what was once a storage building/workshop so it can be transformed into the new studio for Quality Quilts. Twenty years of stuff and all the wood working equipment is proving to be a very big job and you throw into the mix the desire to have a summer garden and illness and you have a perfect storm. As you can see more has come into the house. I didn't think we could get another thing in but we did! You see we can't have anything in the attic of the shop due to the insulation of  new  lighting...

Quality Quilts Is On The Move

Quality Quilts is Moving!! Yes you read correctly Quality Quilts is moving out of the house and into the 800 square foot build behind our home. The previous owner built it as a woodworking shop. There are plugs everywhere and lights galore. Originally this building was going to be my husbands shop but we have decided to make it my studio. Tim is converting the garage into his shop. We are really excited for the changes and to have our home back with a dinning room to eat in and a living room large enough to entertain in. Quality Quilts has grown and now there are two of us sharing the studio and it is really...
