I was looking through some of my pictures and found some things I thought I would post.

This is a group round robin that the "Just a Little Crazy Stitcher's Club" from Kansas City did back in 2006. I made the first block and then everyone in the group made a block for me following the theme and colors of my block. I put this in the Nite Owls quilt show this year and we won the "Best Use of Embellishment" ribbon.

This was a box that I made for my Friend DeAnn from the "Crazy Stitcher's Club". We did a challenge where we made something for them from items that they had given to us to use for the project. I made the quilt and covered the top of a box with it.

This is one of two hanky quilts that I made for my Husband's Aunts with their Mother in the center. I don't know why it is turned sideways. It isn't in my picture and Blogger doesn't give the option to rotate that I could find.

I'm Back

It has been a while since I have blogged. Life kind of got in the way. I have moved to California in the last few months and had to leave behind so many great Friends. I hope that in time I will find another great group of California Friends.

I have noticed that there are not a lot of people that Crazy Quilt here. I am now on a mission to recruit as many new CQer's as I can. I am going to be teaching some CQ classes at The Fabric Patch in Montclair, CA. It is really a great shop. They have a huge selection of fabrics.

I have been working on setting up my sewing room. I have a great space. It is the second biggest bedroom in our new house and has a walk-in linen closet across the hall and the laundry room next door. The perfect triangle of creativity! I hope to get back into dying fabric, trims, and thread. The laundry room has a large sink in it so that will be very convenient. The linen closet is just for my fabric and things.

I have 2 six foot tables in the corner and two people can sew at once here.

I have an old drafting table that I have set up as a cutting table. Now if I can only figure out where I packed that bulb for my Ott Light!
