I'm going to set the tone right now for blogging. I've told all of our quilting staff that they need to try to keep their posts sort of quilting related, but I tend to not follow my own rules (bad Karen, bad!). Instead of quilting, I'll start off by welcoming you to my office, freshly decorated for Christmas.
I have so many decorations for my office that I keep them on a pallet at work instead of dragging them home every year. We are open the day after Thanksgiving and I always use that day to take down my non seasonal desk toys and get all of my Santa's out. I work in very creative environment - we have quilters, knitters and painters everywhere - so I am very fortunate to have either received as gifts, or purchased many hand made items. My favorite by far is my collection of hand carved, hand painted Santa's. MaryJo (our resident artist for www.artistsclub.com) and John Tuttle, her husband, team up to make these every year.

Aren't they fabulous?! You can see my "before" toys there too.
Anyway, back to quilting. I'm so excited to launch our new quilting community. I hope you'll enjoy it! We want this to be your community, so let me know if you have an idea for a feature. I'd love to hear from you. And be sure to join one of our Quilt Along groups. I'm hosting the UFO group
- I'm sure none of you can relate to having too many unfinished projects :)
