Hello!

Welcome to information central.  Come here to get the skinny on everything in the GeekQuilter universe!

There's so much to tell you!

Hello again, Friends!

It has been A LONG time since I’ve seen you around. Listen, things here have been NUTS! School is super challenging me, but in a super great way. I have been working my fanny off! My mom and dad were here to visit for almost 2 weeks, and it was so nice having them here. We didn’t do much (they’ve seen most of the sights around here), but we played a LOT of cribbage (Dad and I won over Mom and Hubby in a stunning come from behind upset), we ate a lot of good food, including Tuckaway Tavern and LOBSTAH!

While they were here, my dad fixed up a few things around the house (YAY!) and my mom and I made an entire big jar full of Monster eyeballs (decorated ping-pong balls), and she quilted her fanny off. She completed a top that was blocks when she got here, she quilted 3 quilts, and made me quilt 1. She had all 4 of those quilts bound by the time she got home, too! I think she liked using the long arm, but when my dad asked if she wanted one, she heartily declined. I guess 1 per family is enough, huh? She also left a top behind for me to quilt for her, so I guess my first “customer” quilt is in the system.

Also while they were here I had 2 orders come in, on top of school. Both of those got finished finally last week. So I am almost mostly caught up. Just in time for the last 3 weeks of my semester.

The other joyful news is that my mom took 3 shopping bags full of SCRAPS from my stash. I didn’t want to measure the pieces and add them all up, so I consulted the internet and figured out the yardage by weight. Even though I haven’t been publishing my numbers, I have been keeping track, and I’m so psyched. Well, until this week, but let’s talk about the numbers as of last FRIDAY!

So as of the last time I reported my fabric and 10/19 my numbers look like this:

Fabric in: 14.075 yards

Fabric out: 69.112 yards (yep, I used and offloaded almost 70 yards of fabric! (that does include a pretty substantial quilt of my own that I finished)

Net Fabric: -55.037 yards

Net Fabric 2018: 48.746 yards

Do you see that, I’m under 50 yards! Ok, yes, I went on a Cotton + Steel binge on Friday… Yes, there are two really big boxes of fabric in my studio yet to be counted. I was having a rough day, ok?!!? Retail therapy was in order. :)

Hopefully I can get to you sooner next time, but until next time,

Piece! And Long Arm!
