Like a bad penny...

...I always turn up.

I can't believe I have blogged since September...sigh.  For a while I could have said I had a good reason why I wasn't but that excuse doesn't work seven months later.  I've made several attempts at writing a post but its been hard coming back after so long.

But anyway...what have I been up to? Well...I'm back in Texas for one.  But that's only until the end of the summer and then I'll be making the move to eastern Washington state.  I won't bore you with all the details other than its all related to my husband's work.

I've been doing a lot of sewing the past few months.  Here's just a little of what I've been doing...

 
Once Steam a Seam II was available again I made this
wall hanging designed by Toni Whitney.
 

 
I made a new rug for my kitchen.
 

 
I started the Millefiori quilt along and haven't worked on it anymore past this point.
 

 
I made cathedral windows that will be going into a tablerunner.
 

 
I created this quilt from 10" squares after making the NY Beauty below.

 

 
I made some blocks from some Downton Abbey fabric.
 

 
And most recently I started making this quilt sample
for my good friend Jennifer Lee's online shop Red Thread Studio 
using Jen Kingwell's new line Gardenvale for Moda.
 
 
So there you have it.  That's what I've been up to. 
 
Keep an eye out for an upcoming post about Spring Quilt Market next week.  But if you can't wait to see all the fabulousness, you can follow me on Instagram as I post pictures during Market.
 
Till next time...

P.S.  I've missed y'all...I really have.
