I hope I'm back.

I have been lost for a while. I'm trying to get my feet moving again. My sweet family helped me move my sewing room downstairs. It's a great space. I was hoping a change would help reboot my love of quilting. This was last October and I'm still unpacking boxes. It's not that I have that much stuff, it's I feel lost down there. A few weeks ago Jessica (my daughter) and I made a christening gown for her boss' daughter. I really enjoyed it. My sewing machine died soon after that, so I was able to buy a new one. I got a great deal on a HV Designer Ruby Deluxe. We set it up a few days ago and today I'm finally going to get down there a sew something. I have a few projects started and I have a quilt in the frame. That poor quilt has been in for over a year. But that's all about to change.

Where has this year gone.

Can't believe it's September. I need to get my head together and start my Christmas sewing.
I have to make lists and organize my thoughts and plans. I will need a few days before I'm ready to attack. It will all start in the sewing room. So if you don't here from me in a few days I'll be in there somewhere.

Hope everyone had a great holiday. I can't believe it's the new year already. Happy New Year!!!
I made a couple quilts for Christmas but I don't have the pictures yet. I'll post them sometime soon. I really want to get a lot of thing done this year. I have some UFOs to do. Maybe 4 or 5. So that's a big goal for this year. The one that's on most peoples list is to lost some weight, I'd be happy with about 50 to 75 lbs gone. I'm so happy I don't have to add quitting smoking. I did that 1 1/2 yrs ago. That's one I'm very proud about. Hope to put the weight lose in that column. My plan is to keep up with this blog a few times a week, post pictures of quilts I've done, and hopefully some customers quilts too.

Happy Thanksgiving. We had a good time at our daughter's home today. Great food and wonderful company.

This hasn't been a good quilting year for me. I was sick in Feb. Then I spent the whole month of August with my Mom after her heart surgery, She's doing great. Then I got sick early Sept, thru to
middle of October. I have been trying to get back into quilting. A lot of reading and planning. I
 did get one done, still need to bind it.

Can't believe it's March already. I just haven't been in the sewing room much. I'm almost done with Block #4. Hope to get back in the sewing mood soon.

I finally remembered how to post pictures.

 Block #1
 Block #2
Block #3

I figure if I can get 1 block a week finished, I would have this quilt done by summer.
