I've Moved...My blog That Is!

Exciting News! Even though I was under the weather and up to the rafters in boxes, I've been busy! I decided to take the plunge and move my blog to a hosted wordpress blog.

I instilled the help of Gloria Hansen and her biz partner Derry at Gloderworks to get me up and running with the initial code installation for my blog, transferring of content and hosting. I figured the learning curve was more than I had time for right now. It has taken me 4 twelve hour days to get the layout arranged, categories reset, and occasional missing post photos uploaded on over 900 posts. There will be more tweeks and additions as I figure out how to get things the way I want, so please bare with me if you come across an occasional glitch. 

Come on over and visit my new Blog home! I think you'll find it cozy and colorful with lots of nooks and crannies to explore judycoatesperez.com

The Universe says 'you need to take a break!'

I feel like I have been going full tilt for the last couple months and when I got word my place wasn't closing, it was like being slammed into a brick wall. Nothing like being thrown into limbo with all your belongings packed.

Friday morning I woke up with a throbbing head and sore throat and felt like I'd been hit by a truck. This is the first cold I've had in more than two years and I guess there couldn't be a better time to get sick. The pressures temporarily off for the move and Quilt Festival is still a week away, so I should have a bit of immunity against getting sick then and have my energy restored.

In the mean time, I have enjoyed long hot baths during the day and hot toddies at night, and an excuse to sit on the couch with some knitting, my computer and a snoozing dog.

The gypsy caravan has been detained

Our buyers hit a snag and we are pursuing all possibilities for getting the sale completed before the contract expires. I would hate to start this process all over again and live in boxes indefinitely.

In the mean time, I'm getting racks put on my car this morning, trying to keep up with phone calls, emails, final packing (the kitchen), last preparations for hitting the road, and getting ready to teach in Houston at International Quilt Festival in a couple weeks, I just wish I knew where I was leaving from.

More CSA Artbox's in the works

The Artbox CSA has been such a cool project, that the group decided to invite a couple amazingly talented friends to join us this time around; Tracie Lyn Huskamp and Kelli Nina Perkins! 

We are going to offer 3 new artbox options: a six piece full box and 2 different four piece half boxes just in time for the holidays. 
Since I'm in the midst of moving, I decided to only contribute to a half box this time round. I wanted to try something a little different by creating some textile collages in the tea and ephemera style but in an aqua blue colorway.

The boxes will go on sale November 1st, so watch for announcements on our blogs, facebook or check the ArtBox CSA website.
