Back, again!

OMG! How quickly time goes by between my posts. I STILL haven't finished organizing my sewing room/office/guest room ... that's why I haven't been back. I've been feeling guilty about not getting anything done. Now isn't that ridiculous??

Thought I'd stop by, visit some other blogs and at least say hello world!
It's been a busy Spring, I am making ever so slow progress in my sewing room. But I just made a pretty big fabric commitment to making some pillow cases, so I'll be working on those this coming week.

In the meantime, thought I'd share a few pretty pics from the last few weeks ...

Lady slippers ... love that name!
Bleeding Heart ... one of my Spring time favorites!

And a very brave Chickadee who sat there for longest time posing for me ...

Evidence of a year

When I was writing yesterday, it occurred to me that Audrey, the baby mentioned in my one and only blog post last year is now 13 months old and walking!

Here's a photo from her birthday party a month ago ... time really flies for babies!
Here she is with her mom and dad, Jessica and Victor. They live in Canada now, so we have less opportunity to see them, but thankfully for on-line apps like Facebook, we can see photos and videos. How did we live without the internet? Hard to imagine!Debbie

A year goes by ...

Wow! Nearly a year since I've blogged! A ton has happened and a lot is still the same, I'm ready to keep on movin' forward! Happy 2010, everyone!

I finished some projects last year, but not as much as I'd hoped. It is my goal for this year to either finish or re-invent all projects I have going. My other goal is to start designing my own projects rather than just focusing on recreating other people's things. Not that there's anything wrong with using other people patterns, but I have so many ideas that I never actually use that it's bugging me.

The most significant thing has happened as far as sewing and quilting goes is that I've reorganized my sewing room, not once, but twice! Yikes! And I'm still working on finishing up the second time. I will report back, with pictures on this under taking. I'm really into to purging, purging, purging things I've been saving for no good reason!

Anyway, the most significant project I finished this past year was WallFlowers by Waltzing with Bears here's a photo of it hanging at my guild's quilt show last October:
Lots to talk about. I hope to reconnect with a lot of quilters out there in cyber land. Hope everyone has a truly happy and prosperous 2010!
