Back on the Blogging Track

 I can not believe it's been over a month since I've last posted! Yikes! Where has the time gone? 
I wish I could tell you I've been away on safari and created this quilt when I returned home....
....but while it's true...I designed this was some time ago and unless you can call the the weeds in our garden a jungle...
the most ferocious critter I've come across in our Florida wildlife is 
"Soxie One Eye"
....she's such a pussycat....hardly a threat.

I'm not exactly sure why I haven't been here of late. Oh wait...maybe it's that thing called "work".
Since our return from spring quilt market it's been non stop.
I finished a memory quilt that now lives in Germany....
This quilt was such a pleasure to create and my heartfelt Thanks go to Kathy Brown - The Teachers Pet -  for her inspiration for this quilt. I'm in love with her book "More Take 5 Quilts" and although Kathy's quilt in the book did not have pictures, it was the perfect layout for these family treasures. I can't wait to make more from her book...this time...for MOI !

After the memory quilt...another "sweet" project. Here's a little peekie...

...a very special birthday quilt for a very special guy...
I'll tell you more about that one the next time we visit.

I just heard the dryer buzz...yey, fabrics are ready for pressing!
I've been soooo bad falling off the "15 Minute Play" wagon ... I won't even tell you how many 'colors' I am behind. You'd think owning a quilt shop I'd have more than enough fabrics to choose from...but alas...I needed MORE black & this afternoon...I looked in braved  the fabric jungle ( sewing room) ....unearthed my 'stash' ..'ta-da'... found these...oldies but goodies...perfect!

Have a great week! I'm sure we'll meet again....sooner than later I hope...because I'm ready to get back on the blogging least the spirit is willing....let's hope the rest follows!

  1. Hello again. Looks like you have been very busy sewing. Hope you get some time to do more "play" sewing - although is that not a bit of a busman's holiday?

  2. Hi you work where you play, I'm not sure what that is called. But alas, today I 'worked' even tho I really wanted to play. Thanks for stopping by!


I just love to hear from you and I truly do read every comment. Sometimes life gets a wee bit crazy and I'm not always able to reply to them all...but I'll keep trying! If you are Anonymous or a no-reply blogger, leave your email with your comment, otherwise there's no way I can reply to you - and maybe you're okay with that - but if there's a give-away and you'll never know!
