The End... from Val's Quilting Studio

The hum of my sewing machines seem to almost echo in our empty house as the final quilt gets quilted....
 ...and another got binding sewn on.

I thought Jackson looked a little sad until I realized while I was ironing that he in fact just couldn't find a comfy place to rest! Poor guy! I felt so bad. With no dog bed of his own nor couch to rest upon...he finally found a cozy spot in the quilt I was binding. Smart puppy.

I'm Back! New Look! New Purpose! from Val's Quilting Studio

My goal for 2019 was to be authentic as my husband and I found ourselves at a crossroad that would find us making an intentional, major shift in our lives both emotionally and physically. It was time to accept what was truly no longer a healthy option for us and recreate a new life for ourselves.
Welcome 2019!

Life's journey is full of hills and valleys.
