time flies!

It has been a long time since I posted. I've been very busy. We had all new floors put in and so I've basically packed up and unpacked our house over the last 2 weeks. Whew! The hardest part was the sewing room. I have a very deep closet in that room and I hadn't cleaned it out in a very LONG time. It was good to refold some ufo's. I'm wanting to get back to working on one in particular so I hope I can post some progress on it soon.
In the meantime I've been focusing on these 3 projects and making some progress. This is the second vine panel of my Susan McCord vine quilt. It's about halfway - I LOVE working on this project!

I made a few more blocks for Cheddar Posies. I'm running low on my cheddar stash. The cheddars at my LQS are a bit dull. I need to find more somewhere else. Anyone know of a good Quilt shop in central Florida that stocks lots of reproduction fabrics? We're going on a holiday there in a few weeks. We've never taken the kids to Disney World/Land before - it should be fun.

I'm slowly making progress with my red and white quilt too. I have 3 of the setting triangle 1/2 wreaths done and did the background quilting in one of the corners to see how it would look.
I'm still waiting for the quilt to tell me what it needs in the red parts - I hope it starts talking soon :0)

Happy Quilting!!

Wow!! One fabulous project after another. I admire you for doing the vine, as I would love to but know I don't have the right kind of patience. As in "I'm into easy".

blessings, jilly

Wow, Wow, Wow, all three of your projects look wonderful. You are doing so good on the vines quilt, it is coming along beautifully!. Your quilting is also beautiful on your red and white quilt...I thought I was the only quilt whisperer...having the quilt tell me what needs to be quilted where : )
Thanks for your comment over on my blog, I have been trying to come up with a new project for my Mom. For now she is embroidering dish towels for the assisted living gift shop. Maybe hexies????
