Okay...dust bunnies!!! Move along.
I cannot believe how long it has been since I have been here. Months and months. I have been working very hard to come back to quilting. Some ups and downs, some progress. I'm actually contemplating moving the blog over to a different format as I sometimes have so much trouble actually getting here. It used to be easy but now it is a pain.
In January, I took a class at my LQS (The Quilt Place in Rockledge, FL is a lovely, lovely place to be) with Gudrun Erla. Then in February I hopped on the Drop and Give Me Twenty train to finish the quilt top, which is to be a gift for my brother-in-law. Okay...fell off the train and the darn thing still isn't done but I have made progress.
Went on a cruise in March. That was FUN!!!
I went home to NH in June to visit. My mom and I did some sewing and we did bindings on a couple of charity quilts. I forgot how much I missed the therapeutic nature of this. So much. I started a little group here in my community in July. So far we've met twice. I have two more dates set and in September we'll probably settle into once a month. It seems to have struck a chord with people who don't even know how to thread a needle!!! Do you think there is a need for socialization here? Don't answer...it is too obvious. Lots of lonely gals!
I made a table topper for my friend's birthday. She turned 50, loves Halloween. I cannot believe I did not get it done yet. Her birthday was the 10th. She's seen it, she loves it and it will be my goal to finish it this week. If I can get back here easily enough, I'll have pictures.
I need to make two or three more table toppers for our annual Autumn Bazaar. That is in November. I know how fast I can get things done because I time myself. Doable. I also need to make something for the raffle table. Also doable.
My wonderful friend, Nancy, told me I needed to sign up for the Teal Mini Swap. So I did. I had been contemplating and I just needed a push over the mountain. It is good. I will be looking forward to my swap partner's info and get that done. I have never been a slacker in swaps. I might freak out but I have always followed through. I cannot commit to my own self though. haha Might need to work on it.
The Teal Mini Swap is on Facebook. Check it out. A $15.00 entry fee with $10.00 going to Ovarian Cancer Research. The other $5.00 cover shipping from Beth. Signups until August 29th. I'm looking forward to it.
PS: That train I fell off is also run by Beth! A rock star!!!
That's it for today. Cannot believe I am actually here. Hope you are all having a fun productive day.
