Just about everything new

I have not spent much time here updating my creative life.  I am launching a new site this week and that has been fun.  www.NanaBlueQuilts.com  is live and I am adding new products slowly.  The studio is just ready and primed for a redesign---If only I can choose a theme!  So, many wonderful colorways to go with.  I love this quilts colorway but worry it will end up looking like a candy shop just too sweet.

I get to design my new Quilt Studio

Hubby is giving up the "Man Cave" for my quilt studio. Presently its a whopping 7 feet by 12 feet! I get to move it to the downstairs to a 3 room inlaw style apartment.  I am sort of at a lost to where to begin, so later I will post pictures and decide what to put on the walls and floors! I can go from there, maybe with your help!  I am thinking walls in a buff  with a pink undertone???

Back to quilting

This is block 3 of Barbara Brackman's free block of the week dedicated to the 150th  anniversary of the Civil War. Each week she shares a historical block and stories from the time. This week was about the seven stars block.

my first spinnings


My first yarns... a little chunky...all I can say it reminds me of patting my head and rubbing my tummy! It takes time to get the drafting down but what a wonderful way to relax between quilting.

This was later today getting better and a little thinner:)

My new friends the Alpacas!

I got a chance to meet some local Alpacas,  How cute is this guy?  I bought a ton of his wonderful coat. I plan to start spinning this week for the first time. My wheel is expected tomorrow.  I have lots to look forward to this spring when he and his girl friends get sheered.
Their mom Lisa was very gracious to show us about their wonderful farm. 

How pretty is this gal?  If you are interested in some of their wonderful fleece just give me an email! I am sure it won't last long.
