I’m very proud of the progress we’ve made so far at Koosa Mountain Lodge. We’ve been working hard to improve the retreat experience for our guests. The new patio furniture has all arrived and looks amazing, I’m so excited to build my first fire in the new firepit. It’s been a little cold and windy for a fire.
I’ve started going through seed and plant catalogs looking for just the right flowers and vegetables to plant this spring. We got a late start last year and our flower beds and gardens weren’t what I’d like them to be. My goal is to get the plants in the ground before the pollen forces me inside!
My new longarm machine has been getting a lot of use. I have one client who dropped off 5 quilts for me to quilt for her! And they are all beautiful. One thing I love about longarm quilting for others is that I get to see so many different beautiful quilts. It’s also a lot of fun picking out just the right quilting motif for each quilt.
One fun thing I’ve decided to do each quarter is to build a basket of quilting related items, coupons or gift certificates to local businesses, and other favorite items of mine. I will draw a name from my mailing list to select the recipient of the gift basket each quarter. So, make sure you are signed up for my mailing list for a chance to win. Sadly, I can only ship within the USA.
I’m making great progress on my personal quilt projects. I’ve got a few quilts ready to send to Mom for bindings. My list of quilts I want to make just keeps getting longer though. I’ve loved seeing all the beautiful exploding hearts posted on Facebook. It looks like a great way to use up scraps. I snuck into Stitch and Quilt this afternoon for some backing fabric, and they have a gorgeous teal quilt hung up, I think that’s another one I want to add to my list. If you are in the area, check it out.
I hope all of you are making progress on your goals for 2021, and that you are staying safe and healthy.
Looking forward to retreating with you all soon!
