 You may be wondering, why all the quotes?  Well, as the title of my post says, CHANGE IS IN THE AIR.  For several years now, I have been slightly (not a lot, just a little) dissatisfied with what I have been doing.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE what I do AND I've felt that something needed to change.  I just wasn't sure how to go about making the shift.  I am currently in the middle of making that shift.  Almost 7 weeks ago I went through an extremely traumatic event.  I am still dealing with it and, unfortunately, will be for some time to come.  I will continue to sew (for now) and will slowly transition to what I've been longing to do.  Actually, there are several things I will be pursuing:  photography (which will most likely involve custom fabrics) and writing.  Let's just say that I have a lot to say and leave it at that for now.  Since I will not be giving up what I have been doing for the last 20 years, I will continue to post about my various jobs.  I will also begin to have more varied posts.  I hope that those of you who have followed me for the last few years will continue to do so.  The subject matter I will be writing about is very personal and I am hopeful that while it helps me to deal with what has happened, it will also be helpful to many others.  I apologize for being somewhat cryptic here and I promise it will all become clear in the next several days.  The urge to share has become overwhelming, and I plan to listen more closely than I ever have before to what my mind, body and spirit are telling me to do.

In case any of you are not familiar with Pinterest, all of the preceding quotes came from there.

Love seat slipcovered in red/white ticking.  Throw pillows that incorporate all the fabrics used in the room.  A great way to tie everything together.
Queen Anne's chair with yellow/white check.

 Notice how the slipcover follows the woodwork on the front of the seat.

One of two wings chairs slipcovered in this Ralph Lauren stripe w/ floral pattern.

 The whole room:  3 completely different fabrics and all go together beautifully.
