#1855 Settling In

It has been a wild and crazy month here for us at Sheila Landry Designs.  Both Keith and I have been busy changing, rearranging and updating things at all of our venues. It has been thrilling and exciting for us both, and we are truly enjoying seeing everything come together. It is hard to believe…

#1854 New Patterns and Adventures

As I sit here and begin writing this morning, I realize just how much things have changed since I began blogging several years ago. What began as early morning conversations between you all and myself regarding what the plans were for my day and what the previous day had brought to me has now evolved…

#1853 New Project for Toletown for September

In keeping with my promise to myself and you all to try to do better with blogging regularly, I decided to post some pictures of a project that I am working on for the Toletown painting community for September. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Toletown http://www.toletown.com it is an online painting group that is…

#1852 Lots of Changes

Try as I may, it just hasn’t been possible for me to write and blog the way I used to. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. It is funny, but we work so hard to achieve a level of ‘success’ and sometimes we don’t realize that along with those successes come added responsibility…

#1851 Tall Ships

Yesterday I did something I rarely do – I took the day ‘off’. There were several reasons that I did this. Lately, things have been busier than ever and I was beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. After many years of having my own business, I realize that working seven days a week – even…

#1850 – A Milestone

A long time ago, I read that in order to achieve your goals, you need to first set them. As simple as it sounds, how many times is the list of things we wish to accomplish undefined and ‘blurry’?  How many times are we flying by the seat of our collective pants and not really…

#1849 Getting Back in the Habit

Once again it seems that I am catching up here on my blog posts. I am finding that it is harder than I thought to get back into the habit of writing each day. These days, every morning it seems that I wake up with a long list of things to do. I find myself…

#1848 New Pattern and some Changes on the Horizon

Another week has passed and lots of new things are happening here at Sheila Landry Designs. Unfortunately, most of the things that we are doing don’t make very good blog material. It is hard to document some of the day-to-day activities without putting everyone asleep. But trust me – I think it will be worth…

#1847 Five Little Sheep – Finished!

In trying to keep my promise to myself and also to you all, I am doing my best to catch up on posting about some of the things that I have been working on that I haven’t yet shared. Yesterday was a good day, as we finished getting the site updated and all the new…

#1846 Catching Up

The longer I am away from blogging, the more projects keep piling up and the more overwhelmed I feel about writing again. It is funny how that works, isn’t it? I didn’t realize how long my break from writing was until I received several emails from some of you who were somewhat concerned about my…

#1845 New Projects (again!)

While one would think that the reason that I haven’t been blogging regularly is due to things slowing down, usually the opposite is true. As always, I have several things ‘on the go’ at once and many times I just don’t know what to do first. Add to this that the weather here in Nova…

#1844 New “Summer” Scatter Block Design

After a great deal of rain over the past several days, yesterday (the first day of summer) was the first day that we had a day filled with sunshine in what seemed like a long time. It seemed appropriate. It also seemed appropriate that I was working on my new pattern that will include both the…
