I am sad to say that I have not sewn since April of 2008.



Last year was a bad year for me and I switched my momentum to scrapbooking. With what was going on, preserving memories seemed the best route for me. Now i have two 'bad' habits to deal with :).



On a lighter note, I have started another BOM put on by my local quilt store. This one features blues and greens and I cannot wait to get this first block done. Its inspired me to look back on the projects I have to try to… Continue

I seem to start one every week.



The one in my profile picture is one I took a class for, so I could finish a quilt, and this one still isn't done!

There will be "stitch in the ditch" quilting around the stars and along the lines in the log cabin blocks; right now, just the blocks are outlined. It should be hung, but I use it as a throw. It… Continue
