The Officially Official Announcement: Philly Here I come! And some other stuff too...

Pin It
It's been a long road, friends.  I'm tired to the core and am currently doing something I almost never do: Chillin' in bed.  With the tv on, even!
I'm in Salt Lake City to film a segment of Quilt It! with Jodie Davis tomorrow.  Exciting, right?
Except it was sort of a last minute thing, and I didn't find out I was going to be a guest on the show until after I had boarded a plane for Philadelphia.  So, I spent a lot of time at my new shop, Olde City Quilts as they were gracious enough to loan me a longarm to stitch up some samples for the show.
I spent two weeks in the Philly/Jersey area and I really truly had a blast.  I got to go to Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA and meet some new quilty friends (Christine, Renee and Carol, I'm looking at you).  The show was great and the vendors were great and a good time was had by all.
So blah blah blah.  Why am I moving to Philly? Well... why not?  I've moved around a lot in my 32 years and it was time for a change.  I already have the support of some great friends that I've made there, I have one of the greatest quilt shops on the east coast a train ride from my front door, and I have a new in-home studio that I can't wait to make a mess of.
So there you have it.  I know some of you that have seen me talk about it on Facebook thought I was kidding.  Nope.  It's really happening and I'm excited for the opportunities that await me.  I'm making plans to join two MQGs, I'll be offering private lessons, all kinds of fun stuff.
So if you're on the east coast in the Delaware Valley area, be prepared to feel the earth shake at the end of the month.  :)

Here are some highlights of my trip!
My coffee-time friend.  

Did I mention that I sold BeDazzled? Here's the happy new owner, Diana!

Hanging out with some ducks. No, geese.  Geese.

I got to see Gregory Alan Isakov at Johnny Brenda's.  I was up on the balcony hanging out with his (super sweet and funny) parents!

Walking around and what do I find?

McTavishing in Northern Liberties!

Dinner on my last night with Rob, Judy and Christine.

I love bridges! This one is the Benjamin Franklin.

Dinner view on the river.

One of my two new boyfriends, Stitch.  He's such a lover.

And of course a river pre-sunset.  :)

Hope all is well in your stitchy worlds!

  2. You'll up and go just like that? Without so much as a by your leave, even? Best of luck to you. Love your example of Mctavishing.

  3. So happy for you, new home, new studio and a new hangout, Olde City Quilts! Can't wait to see all the epic quiltiness that comes next!

  4. Welcome to the East Coast, Lisa! When you say "your" new shop, are you part owner of Olde City Quilts now?
    I will definitely come down to see you!

  5. That is freakin' awesome, Lisa! I am so happy for you!

  8. Looking forward to meeting you at Philly MQG!

  9. I’m happily married with a lovely
    wife and two children. I had a very big problem with my wife
    few months ago, to the extent that she even packed her things
    away from me and my kids for almost 5 months, and i tried all
    my possible best and effort to bring her back, I discussed it
    with a very good friend of mine, and he gave me an advice
    concerning a spell caster, and he quote.“There’s someone who
    can handle your situation,he’s always ready and able to do
    anything related to spell casting,i will like you to contact
    him with his I never believed
    in spell casting, but he convinced me and i had no choice than
    to follow his advice, because i never dream of loosing my
    lovely wife, And that’s how i contacted him with his email
    address,and i discussed with him and so surprisingly, he told
    me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is
    done on her. so i never believed, until when i got home,the
    next day, my wife called me to inform me that she was coming
    back…..So amazing!! That’s how i got my wife back through
    spell casting and our relationship was now stronger than how
    it was before, One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell
    it to people around me that problems like this,can always be
    solved by DR,ozalogbo So my advice for you out there is to visit this DR,ozalogbo and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back,to have a happy family.his email once again;
