My Goodbye As An Island Batik Ambassador
Today (February 1st) is the last day of my 2 years as an Island Batik Ambassador.
It has been a wonderful opportunity! I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the other Ambassadors and the challenges of creating new designs regularly – and of course, working with the absolutely beautiful Island Batik Fabrics! Who wouldn’t love all of that?
The monthly challenges this past year had me pushing my boundaries and coming up with designs I wouldn’t have otherwise. That was very special! I can’t praise Island Batik enough along with Katie Laughridge and Elizabeth Lynn Phillips who – to give you just a few examples – took care of us, inspired us, created our challenges, and sent us our fabrics. Two wonderful and very special women!
I would dearly have loved to stay on longer (had I been accepted), but there are other things I must get to, tasks to complete, and new adventures to move on to. One of my new ones will be starting to teach piano lessons next week. (I’m excited about that!) I’m also looking forward to making quilts for Project Linus and contributing to The Quilt Pattern Magazine‘s Kennel Quilts more often than I’ve previously had time for. (I already have 20 tops ready to turn into Kennel Quilts.) Of course, I’ll continue blogging here and on my Quilts for Sale Blog, too. Lots to do! Always!
I hope you’ll all keep visiting, reading, subscribing, and commenting too! I look forward to hearing from you.
