Day 15 – An Early Christmas Present!

My dad got me tickets to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy! I love their vintage vibe! It was a prefect early Christmas present.

They played at a gorgeous theatre about 20 minutes away that’s been heavily restored. Here’s a couple pics.

Day 14 – Live from Plainfield… My Messy Studios

“Impromptu” doesn’t even describe the completely random tour you get from tonight’s Facebook Live.

It was just supposed to be hanging out and then I decide to show you how messy my Studios are. (Yes I have two.) click here to watch it, but please forgive me as to how messy it is! Remember, I’ve been traveling a lot!

Day 13 – Rest

I gave my last lecture for this year and then took a much needed day off. I feel like I have been going non stop since October. In a way, it’s true.

I finally get to do a tiny bit of personal sewing this month!

I really really want to make this coat. I have all of the fabric and a gorgeous vintage button. I think I want to lengthen the sleeve and shorten the hem slightly. My fabric is teal/lime colored. I’m a big fan of these vintage style bouclé coats. The pattern seems straightforward. We will see!

Day 11 – Miles to go

December is when I do a lot of my business analysis. Today is the last official booked trip of the year.

I will have racked up 29,708 miles by air or land in 2018! This is more than I ever did during my corporate days and I think beats my personal best by about 3000 miles.

I went to 26 events this year, with Cleveland, Houston, and Atlanta receiving multiple trips.

Being a quilt/cosplay teacher means a lot of travel and I happen to like traveling. It’s not for everyone. That said, I’m looking forward to some “home time” and some personal sewing!

It’s been ten days of our blog challenge and so far my stats are much improved. Yesterday’s business blog helped. Blogging everyday is not that hard, but it’s also not that easy. I didn’t call it the 31 Day Blog Writing Walk In The Park… it’s a challenge because it gets tough at times!

If you haven’t taken a look at the amazing blogs on our list, check it out here. There are over 60! That’s so incredible to me! I hope you talk a gander at them and say hello.
