Long Time No Blog

Hello , reader.............

Well, what the heck happened to January???? 

I can't believe I last blogged on New Year's Eve.................. wow..........

This month has been a blur of "life stuff"  -  and business stuff...

*  a big decision about a possible new job - completed !
*  a trip to Miami to participate in a leadership development conference - completed?
* a trip to North Carolina to see family - some big family health and eldercare problems have arisen - those will be ongoing for a while, I fear..........

So, have I sewn and quilted?    Yes..........

But, I haven't had the patience to do any of my fancy stuff...

Instead, I have enjoyed working on donation quilts - for kids.  Some made by me - some pieced by others and then quilted by me.  Here are some pics.  The first one is from a block lottery:

And, a cute string block quilt, all bright in jewel tones and black:



The back is lovely, too, using some crumb blocks:


Then I made two tops from Mary's Quick Strippie patterns, found on Maryquilts.com.  It's so easy and quick and fun !



So, I'm sewing away - and now get to snuggle up with some kitties and watch a football game -

Everybody take care...

Happy New Year Kate. Life stuff does get in the way but that is the reality of life and blogging won't go away while you deal with it.
Those strippie quilts are cute. I make quite a few of them-they are quick to make and use up the stash. I like practicing quilting designs on them.

You sure get a lot of quilting done for someone with so much real life happening. I find that the simple quilts help me to keep my sanity when my life gets hectic. Happy New Year!
