It's Back!!!


I'm so excited that our camera is finally home!!! So I can finally show you this picture of what I've been working on...sort of. I can't show the real thing yet - it's still a surprise! In our quilt group, we're making quilts where 5 other people make rows for your quilt, but we won't know what any of them look like until they're all done. It should be fun!

Quilting for another


I've just been quilting for another woman in our quilt group that has 2 small boys, and therefore not so much time! Our quilt group has been making quilts for the babies dedicated at our church, just about since the group's inception. People seem to appreciate it, and we definitely like doing it. Baby quilts are just the right size for getting done!

It was interesting quilting a quilt that I hadn't created myself. The whole thing was so new to me - not some project I'd been working on for months. Just seemed kind of fresh - new blocks, new fabrics, new ideas.

Quilts on Display


At our quilt group meeting this week I got to be the "interviewed quilter of the month." This included hanging up my quilts to show. Kind of fun...I've never seen so many of them together at one time. It was fun to remember how I made them, and why. Most of my quilts have lots of sentiment to me...it's hard for me to make them any other way.

Distracted?


This is what we did last night - got me a bike! Yeah! And it was actually not snowing, so I could try it out! We went for a ride tonight...no sewing yet. But boy, my seat is not used to being on a bike seat.
