For May I am going to be a traveling woman, but not because I am homeless, but because I am a quilter. Most professional quilters are "a traveling woman", going from guild to guild and convention to convention. We of course, are supported quite nicely by our sister quilters, often in their homes, and the hotels where we stay during conventions.
This past weekend I was at the Kanuga Episcopal Conference Center in NC sewing with friends. We lead a quilting workshop at Kanuga every January. It is loads of fun. Check it out and join us in 2013.
Next weekend I will be at Camp Mikell (another Episcopal camp) in the northeast Georgia mountains to quilt with friends all weekend long. Meals will be prepared for us, dishes washed and we will have nothing on our schedule but quilting, quilting, quilting. Here is a peek at our quilting work room.
And I said after I retired from 20 years as editor-in-chief of QUILT magazine that I was going to sit on my front porch in a rocking chair and just watch the world go by. Foolish me, what was I thinking! Here is my house in spring, no rocking chair but a lovely porch swing that does get occasional use. The house is a 100 year old mill-workers cottage in the historic neighborhood of Marietta, GA.
