Postless. . .

When I'm gone away from blogging for a more than a week, there are a few things reasons why:
1. Not been sewing?
2. Depression?
3. Family obligations?
4. SPRING cleaning!!

So, I have done a very limited amount of sewing and a lot more spring cleaning in the past few weeks!  I did get my Jewels of the Crown done. . . but it's too big because I actually pieced it verses doing paper piecing like I did for the other blocks.  So, I have to paper piece all the blocks due to the resizing of the pattern when I print it - don't know why it does that, but if all the blocks are ending up the same size that is what matters:

And I visited a local quilt show over the past weekend with some new friends.  They were (are) my first class and we all have "kinda" bonded.  The quilts were incredible for a guild  style show.  Wish there was more vendors, but all in all we had a good time!  Can you guess which quilt is my favorite?

I hope to get more sewing in sometime soon.....but now gardening has to share some of my spare time as well.


  1. I loved the quilt slide show - wow! Glad you have connected with some new quilty friends - always more fun when sharing with others.

  2. Your block is lovely! when you get done spring cleaning over there...well....I could sure use some here....

  3. Thanks for sharing the slideshow. There were some truly amazing quilts at that show. Your block is beautiful!

  4. There certainly was some beautiful quilts there. I can't guess which was your favourite but there were a couple that I thought were just stunning. The black and red one with the white 4 point stars was really lovely. I think that was my favourite.

  5. I just love the batiks in your block. Looks like you had fun at the quilt show with your friends.
