I've been offline since Monday night probably due to the storms we've had here. I sure did miss connecting with my frends when I get home from work!
This quilt was another first year quilt made for Joel, the little boy of my secretary from back home. Naturally I didn't take any pictures after it was quilted! LOL! I think the pattern was called something like Flannel Flinders or Flinder Flannels ... I don't remember now. Joel got this when he was about a year old and just loved it. He's now five and the quilt is about worn out. I'll just have to make him another one (and one for his new little sister, Olivia)!
Last night I loaded up a movie on my little DVD player sitting on my sewing table and sewed until bedtime! It felt good! I pulled out the Alex Anderson Retreat project from last November and made a few more blocks for it. I think I want to make the quilt bigger, but I'll decide that when I finish up these blocks. The quilt is from her book "Keep Quilting." I used a Wuthering Heights FQ tower that I threw in my suitcase in my frantic packing the night before flying up to retreat. One of these years I'll actually get my act together and do some fabric planning! Problem is I've got to usually work long hours the week leading up to taking those two days off, so I randomly grab fabric at the last minute and that's what I use when I get there. That's why my cherry quilt turned out to be very Christmas looking! :)
My gratitude today is a real peaceful feeling lately. It's been a long time coming.
