A bit of what I have been up to

I am attempting to make a come back to the world of blogging.  Something which I actually find super challenging.  I just do not excel at taking pictures or posting at regular intervals.  Maybe it will be my new goal this next January.  In my absence, I have finished some of my UFO's and made progress on a couple of really huge projects!

My Farmer's Wife with a Solstice Star in the middle of it!  It is 100% done and being enjoyed in my house. In fact my daughter was horrified that one of her siblings was laying under on the couch the other day.  I told her my quilts are made to be used and enjoyed.

Finally, got my grandmother's Dresden Plate Quilt finished!  She is enjoying having it on her bed and watching movies under in on the couch in the winter.

This was a lap sized quilt I made.  It was originally going to be a charity quilt but my girls have claimed it to play and picnic on.

Moda Bakeshop put up the Dancing Daisies pattern awhile back.  I had this one pinned and decided to give it a go.  I love it!  The top is finished and next up with be quilting it.  I am finally taking time to slow down and enjoy the process.  It does not matter how long it takes me to finish a project as long as I get it done.

Okay so these are not quilts...but I had so much fun making them for my girls and with my girls.  I thought starting a new school they needed something special.  We actually made a lot more than this!  They have enough ribbons to wear a different one every day for at least 2 months.

So that is just a little of what I have been up to.  I hope to post more soon!  Happy crafting!
