Well, ain't that a shock....!

My time flies! I cannot believe it has been close to a month since I last posted. It's certainly not for lack of ideas and projects to post.

 As I write, Santa's Comin' to Town by Olde Green Cupboard is still rolled up on the longarm. I was going to machine quilt it to day, just to realize that I do not have the wool batting I thought I had... hum...... So, it will have to wait....

 My little girl recently returned from Europe. What an experience it was for both of us! Of course her experience was much more cultural! ;o) When she returned there was a lot of catching up on hugs and kisses!

Imagine that, fourteen years old and she has already traveled abroad, myself ..... I haven't left the continent ..... but soon! ;o) Here is one of the souvenirs she brought me!

Isn't she sweet?

On a quilting note, I have set aside the hand embroidery for a bit and have been working on some hand applique blocks, a project I started back in October 2011. Here is block 3!

The background is Marcus Brothers - Paula Barnes' fabric line Tavern Blues. The picture does not do it justice. So rich!

Well, I cannot say that this was an easy entry to write.  Not sure I like Blogger's new interface, it's so white making it difficult to find anything.  Also, flipping between Compose and HTML does not work well.  I'm all for change but sometimes the change is not always for the better! ;o)

Thank you for stopping by!
