Hi friends - I hope all has been well with you. I didn't intend to take a break from blogging, but things just seemed to get in my way. First, I participated in the Wildflower bicycle ride, then I started making cute little things like Maggies (by Lazy Girl Designs) and Little Wallets (by Valori Wells) and checkbook covers (by Crazy Mom Quilts) and I just couldn't stop. You see, I'm one of those who thinks it's just as easy to make 12 of something as it is to make 1, so my pile of sewing projects just continues to grow and grow. I did make good progress and will try to post a pic next week of my crafts.
I'm also back to quilting and have the polka dot sunflower well on its way to completion. I'll be happy to have it finished because I'm scheduled to teach another class the Saturday after next and every time I teach the class, I make a sunflower. Also, I've been spending time looking over MQResource. I encourage you to check it out. It's filled with tons of information for anyone who machine quilts. I especially enjoy looking at the finished quilts. It's like going to a new quilt show every day. Oh, and did I mention that I've now taken 3 classes online through MQResource? Quilt Whisperer by Carla Barrett, Feather Boot Camp by Suzanne Early, and Wholecloth Execution and Design by Adam Chenevert. I can't say enough about how great these classes are and you'd be surprised by how well it works via the internet.
Well, that's about it for now. My hubby and I are off to San Francisco tomorrow, then to Sacramento on Saturday afternoon/evening so we can watch Stage 1 of the Amgen Tour on Sunday. Have a great weekend and I'll touch base again next week.
