Saturday night finishing second!

Felt really good to finish up two UFO'S this weekend! They even have labels!  My goal this year---- no quilt is finished until it has a label!

New addiction

New addiction. I love having handwork to do when I can't sit in front of my sewing machine.   I have discovered Lucy Boston EPP blocks!  More to come as I get back into blog land

Wow has it really been almost a year? Well, it doesn't mean that I havent' been sewing. I will have to try and do a little quilt show on all the quilts I completed last year.
First though, let me tell you about the wonderful weekend I had at our quilt retreat. A few of my friends and myself attend a Quilt retreat in Starke, Fla. It is hosted by Gloria Parsons who previously owned the Old Green Cupboard Quilt Shop in Jacksonville, Fla. It is just a wonderful way to spend a relaxing weekend. The scenery is beautiful and the facilities are wonderful. It is located at Camp Blanding in Starke.
I was glad to see some new faces and some familiar faces again. Gloria had two guest teachers this time, Pam Burda from Heartspun Quilts and Lyn Hagmier from Kansas Troubles Wonderful teachers.

More to come, I will get some pictures uploaded and post.... Happy Belated New Year!!!!!

Weekend Project

Hi everyone. This is what I spent my free time completing this weekend.  Finally, got to sew something I have wanted to sew for a long time.  Don't you love the cheerful fabric.
Great pattern by Terri Atkinson.  I keep it in my van so all my odds and ends are near to hand.

Holiday is now over

I hope everyone out there in blog land had a great holiday. I know we did. We had a houseful of guests, a wedding to attend and a family dinner, twice actually.  Lol Two family dinners that is!!!
It is always great to see the family in from out of town. Now I have to travel for a day or two, then I get to stay home for the rest of the holidays, Hopefully spend next weekend decorating my house. It will be time to take down all my favorite fall decorations and turn to Christmas.
I love Fall the best, so it will be sad to put it all away till next year. But time to get ready for the next invasion of family and friend.  I haven't had much time for sewing in the last few weeks, but I plan to put it on my schedule very soon.

OOOPPSSS left that word out!

Meant to say I hope you and your family have lots to be grateful for as well.
Sometimes, it is the littlest of things that we forget are blessings, not just the big things.


Okay, this month has really flown and shame on me for not posting more often. But a few unexpected travel plans for work and family birthdays etc..... oh well, I won't bother making more excuses.
But I have been busy.  This lovely Fall embroidery (pattern by Painted Quilt, thank  you!).

This beauty is one of two to be given as gifts this year (for Mr. Keeper's office girls). So you see I have really been busy and I have four more tops to quilt, in fact I am headed over to my friends house now, (she has a long arm yipppee!)
This was a life saver, I would have tried Retayne, but at 10pm there are no quilt shops near me open, so it was rush to the nearest  Wal Mart (open 24 hours) when this next photo turned completely pink when I washed it.... OH NO !!!!!
It is a Christmas Gift for my boss and I can't have it all pink! This picture does show some pink tints but it really got most of it all out and it looks much better in person. Thank Goodness.
I am off on another work inspired trip tomorrow, headed up to Alabama for a few days.
Mr. Keeper will be home alone , no doubt enjoying his alone time! He was kind enough to hold the quilts for me while I snapped the pictures.
Busy Thanksgiving time coming, One daughter will be married that weekend, family dinners etc.
We have so many things to be grateful for and you do also.
Happy Thanksgiving.
