Mom is close and I CAN'T WAIT! Sean is soon to be close and a whole lot of quilting ready for Roxy!
Is this not so darling?!!!!! While visiting my mom last weekend I spied it hanging and wanted to share it with you. She is soon to arrive to my home for the next month and I AM SO EXCITED!...and she is bringing her trunk show so I will be excited to have pics of her current beauties! Stay tuned.
A first for me with Roxy....double feather with crosshatching. I decided to not measure out the cris-crosses and am liking the effect. Trying new things and letting go of the "what if I ruin this trying something new..." I will be so excited to have this piece completed due to my pile of Christmas quilts begging for attention :). Can you relate?
I describe this photo of my sister's current project, "Soft and Yummy"....don't you love the colors...I think she may be already planning for spring and trying to ignore her Ohio winter to come :).....You can bet this will be a show stopper as are all of her Star Quilts...
And as I type I CELEBRATE how my mom, sis and me can all LOVE a hobby so much and yet find our own niche and run with it! Quilting is so much like my nursing career...find that happy place and go go go!
Roxy's next project. Ms. Tiffany is glued, bordered and patiently waiting....I rarely use fall colors but I so love the warmth of this piece.
I kept this photo upside down just for fun! Kinda like my life with Sean away for work. He comes home tomorrow for a visit and I am so excited!!!! While he is away, things are going so smoothly and I am enjoying my solo time with Noah but I can also feel myself missing Sean's presence as each day passes. Interesting past 3 weeks and so much excitement to come from it..just have to be patient.
So excited to have this photo come to life tomorrow! Anyone relate with loving a dear friend, child or partner through the screen.....I have this photo up when I am falling asleep or am at work and struggling with the stressors of the job. Puts it all back in to perspective!
I miss blogging and quilting, but I know right now that you are all out there and are not going away and that at different times in our lives special little people take up our time and to revel in the memories!!!!!!! Thank you for your visits, your love notes to me asking how I am and most of all, for being my friends in the computer screen that inspire me and make my life full of CELEBRATIONS!
