Hello Again!

It's been a long time since I've posted on this blog.  
I've missed reading your stories and writing my own. 

Over the past two years, I've been spending more time on professional skills
and less time on everything else, including social media.

I've still found a little time to sew, and I've posted my quilts on Instagram.  
IG posting is much quicker, but it just isn't as satisfying.

It's the relationships and conversations around quilt-making 
that make me feel good, and this is where they happen.

SO, I'm back!

Briefly, here are a few things I've been doing since I last posted.
I'll come back and tell the stories later, one by one.  

I'm still working on these EPP stars.  
It's my travel project, and I've been finding fun photo opportunities on the road.  

I'm still using up orphan blocks and using Word Play words in quilts.  

I made another corduroy quilt top, in time for 11/11/18, 
Corduroy Appreciation Day.

I made string-pieced quilt top, this one based on one made in 1920 by an unknown maker 
and shown in Gwen Marston's Liberated String Quilts book.

I made a wool quilt, with wool from many sources, old and new.

I contemplated what to do with all of these quilts.  This is only half the stack!
They all went back into the closet.

And I found this heart reaching out to me on the path to my backyard.

Weirdly, coming back to this blog, where I've met and come to love so many of you,
it feels like coming home.  
Thank you for being here and welcoming me back.
I'll see you again soon!
