Well...I am "making my way back" into blog land. I have NO BIG excuses or at least I am NOT going to use them here, other than "sometimes life interrupts." I kept up on my "reading" but, not on my posting. After having been away so long I question if I should just be a quiet blogger and only read others (my followers are few). BUT, I do feel I have things to share and occasionally "show-off." I currently don't belong to local quilt groups and have been somewhat disappointed in what my local quilt shops have to offer with the exception of one. However, soon after I moved to the area a year ago that shop made the decision to stop offering classes/workshops. That is when I started to get explore the online quilt blogs and a "real" friend invited me to join an online virtual bee group, that too has been a struggle for me. BUT...I am here to say I am NOT giving up. I will work to earn my followers and hopefully that number will grow.
The pictures below are of a lap top quilt "Jelly Filled by Thimble Blossoms" I recently finished for a wedding gift. Darling daughter picked out the kit(with some guidance from me where to find it) and I did the work. We wanted this to be a "keepsake" for a special young woman and her new husband. **the day I was taking these pictures we were having ANOTHER nasty storm rolling through and I has home alone so the lighting distorts the beautiful colors of Verna that were used.**
finally.. the backing.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you will give me another chance. Please stop back soon, I will have more to share!
