In the dash.
Life happens between the slipcover dashes.
At this time of giving thanks, I pause to remember a few of those moments from 2015.
Sometimes I am still creating:
Making dinner napkins for a client's celebration of girlfriends.
Stitching burlap panels display for a photographer's business launch.
Designing 10 gallon drum coffee socks for a local organic coffee roaster.
Assembling a high schooler's needle art art project into pillows.
Finishing heirloom needlepoint pillows.
Rescuing a client's wardrobe malfunction.
Piecing a memories quilt for a NYC designer.
Other times I am trying new things:
Driving a Penske to High Point with a truckload of furniture.
Scoping market with a home fashions comrade.
Traveling to Italy for a fabric Reconnaissance.
Touring with an Antiques Diva.
Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Avery County, NC.
Replacing my walking foot machine with a new monster Juki.
Painting the kitchen cabinets white.
The best of times I am with friends and family:
Moving my daughter back to Raleigh.
Weekending in Oriental to catch a glimpse of my sailing son.
Celebrating birthdays with Fishy Business.
Vintaging with Mama.
Driving my mom & mother-in-law to cataract surgery.
Chilling on Ocracoke Island with my muse.
Attending a beach wedding of my daughter's childhood friend.
Tailgating with the Wolfpack and my sisters.
Square Dancing with friends from church.
2015 was a great year for the slipcover dash.
I am grateful to God for all the between time.
Yes life happens between the slipcover dashes.
I love making slipcovers -
but am most passionate about the dashes -
and now I've got to dash -
