Quilting gives me that zest for life that I lack Monday through Friday 9-5 (more like 6:30-5 or 6 or 7 some nights...).
Quilting is really my passion. I feel that it's what I was put here to do. I'm here to quilt, and now I know it. So I'm going to quilt, and I'm going to bring the joy of quilting to others.
That's right bitches, I'm breaking out into the world of teaching!!!! (insert giant smiley emoticon here)
I will be holding workshops sometime after the wedding, no date has been set yet, but I'm thinking June is a fabulous month to start being as though I have my first trade show in May post-wedding.
I'm very excited to share this with you all. Now I know I'm no Karen McTavish (not even close), Leah Day, Maddie Kertay, okay I could go on and on and on with the list of quilters that I admire, but I won't; however, I am Alyx Patterson and I'm pretty damn good at thread painting and making other women feel good about themselves. So that's what I'm going to do. I will be teaching workshops for women only, and hopefully, making them feel good about themselves through quilting.
I am so so so excited to embark on this next journey of my quilting career!!!!
Unfortunately I have no quilty pictures to share with you this week as what I'm working on is top secret for my eyes only, but here's a picture of a mason jar with glitter in it.
These are part of our centerpieces for the wedding! Huzzah!
Here is a photo of my dog. This will make everything better instantly. Yes she really is that cute IRL.
Finally, a picture of my man crush. It is man crush Monday after all.
Now go quilt on with yo bad self!
