A balancing act....!

This year, as a whole, my life has been a balancing act. I cannot say that I've stayed centred most of the time, but I managed to make it this far with still some hair left on my head! lol

As you know, school is finished for me. Convocation takes place early June. It will be nice to put a closure to that chapter in my life. Now, I begin a new Chapter, another dream come true for me.

Welcome to the chapter entitled Fibre Junction - A Quilt Shoppe ... where contemporary meets folk art
Stephen has been hard at work, building our furniture for the shoppe.

Pictures do not do justice to these fixtures!

Our opening day is tomorrow, May 1! It will be a "soft opening" as we await the deliveries of future lines of fabric, filling our empty shelves.

Tonight, I left the shoppe full of excitement, thinking about tomorrow. As I stood back and looked at my dream, I became overwhelmed with tears of joy. I am truly thankful!

Since this blog is suppose to be about my quilting adventures, if you want to read more about Fibre Junction, you may visit here.

I want to thank you for being a part of my book of life, accompanying me on a new chapter. I have met some truly wonderful people. You have been an inspiration to me. Thank you for your support.
