My Own Secret Ambition

I just reread my sisters post from a while ago, which I posted here today…I too have a secret ambition.  I have a hard time saying it out loud and admitting to it because it seems so unreachable and out of my league.  But, gathering my courage…here it is.  I want to teach quilting and sewing – you know – all over the United States.  I would love to teach a class for Craftsy.  I would love to design quilts and be a published author of quilt books.  I would love to have sponsors and be invited to contribute to books, magazines and bees, to organize a charity group, to start a quilt guild, to be an awesome longarm quilter, to be noticed and in demand somewhere (besides at home – where I am always needed. 🙂  I am not complaining – I love being a stay at home Mom and I wouldn’t trade that for any of my dreams) There I said it.  Currently I am a phantom quilter that gets overwhelmed at my dreams.  I have learned alot the last year and there is so much more to learn and do and experience.  I do get to go to the Home Machine Quilting Show in Salt Lake City, Ut this year and I am super excited to meet other quilters there.  If you haven’t heard of it, here is the info:

Home Machine Quilting Show
May 8-10, 2014

The premier quilt exhibition and hands-on
educational conference for all machine quilters,
embroiderers and those who love to sew!

Any ambitions you are keeping to yourself?  Saying it aloud (in print) was actually therapeutic for me…try it!  Have a happy Tuesday!

    • Mom and I frequently lament that you are 5 hours away, because how fun would it be for the three of us to sew together. I don’t think the rest of the sisters are quite the fabric nerds we are. haha. How is your dream coming along?

  1. I have sold aprons, burp cloths, and a quilt. I have been accumulating fabric and patterns, I have a friend who has offered to sell stuff in her store. I just need to quit the greenhouse and go for it. I am planning my exit strategy for there. who knows, maybe the doctor will tell me to get off my ankle and I can quit sooner!

    • That would be fabulous! I joined a quilt quild yesterday and I am going to HMQS and taking classes in May. I need to come up with a plan for all of my dreams or that is what they will stay! Do you have any online shops?
