Been Away a While....

My Dad was very ill.  We almost lost him, but thankfully we did not.....  Then I was completely wrapped up in a 125th Anniversary Celebration of the Train Station where I work, and didn't have even a moment of my own!  Check it out at my blog A Colorful World! Mom & I missed Quilt Bee when Dad was sick, and really neither of us were in the mood to sew for a while after that.  Plus, then I was just so exhausted because of the Event! :-)  But, I am back in the swing of things now!

We had Quilt Bee yesterday and it was so much fun!  Two of the ladies did a demo on hand quilting, which I badly needed!  I have hand quilted in the past, but use a laborious in-and-out method.  I think I can handle trying the rocking method now, and want to.  Plus, I am so INSPIRED by all the talent in that room every time we go!  Have a lot to work on, and want to GET BUSY!!!!!


  1. I am with you there.... time to sew, sew, sew.

  2. Glad that you didn't lose your dad...I need to sew, sew, sew but have other things going on that keep me out of the mood.

  3. I wish that I could master hand quilting. It always looks so pretty when it is done. Glad you dad is still there with you. Hugs to you and your mom.
