I'm Back

Okay, so I see my friend Vickie (Stitches) has decided to get going on her blog again, so I guess I should update mine too.

The barn we started to build in July 2009 is done. My husband wants to add a few things to it eventually (a porch and a loft), but he already has it stuffed with his tools and all the other things that were in the garage.

The garage has been painted and the floors stained and I have all of my sewing, quilting and long arm supplies in there. It's now my quilting studio :-)

I have a friend who is looking into a cruise for quilters. The cruise is in February of 2012 and it sounds like a lot of fun. There will be quilting classes on the cruise. I really want to go, but I'm not sure I can afford it. I have a year to try to save up the money tho, so we'll see how it goes.

I'm going on a retreat March 3rd which should be a lot of fun. I have a piece of challange fabric that I am supposed to use in a project. I started on my project last week and should have it done in time for the retreat :-) I am providing the challange fabric for this year so I chose a deep green oriental print. It's a beautiful fabric and I already have my project figured out.

Okay, enough for today. I need to get to work on a quilt that I'm supposed to be custom quilting. It's a wonderful old hand pieced quilt in the indian hatchet (apple core) pattern. I'm a bit nercous about this quilt because the fabrics are so delicate. I'm just stitching a 1/4 inch outine on the inside of each peice. the fabrics in this quilt are so old and delicate that I'm afraid that if I try to add too much quilting to it, the fabrics might tear!
