Hi to all my blog friends. I'm embarrassed to write this post, as it's been FOREVERRRRR since I've blogged. I'm sorry for the absence, life is somewhat overwhelming right now. My in laws are moving to Arizona, we have had company for several days with friends moving to Virginia. It's been crazy! Hopefully my blog mojo will return really soon. Also, I'm having lots of problems posting pictures now. I hate the new blogger layout! It's such a headache to get your pictures in the order you want them to be in! Sorry that these are all screwed up, but I'm so frustrated, that I'm going to post it anyway, without fixing them.
First off, I'll share my WIP's, because of the problem I've mentioned above!
|Andrea from Deep Fried Cupcake mentioned that she wanted to work on Farmers Wife, from Carriage House Samplings. I've had this in my workbasket for a while, so we are doing a SAL, to help us get it done. I'm stitching with 32 count Black Zweigart fabric, and DMC threads, my own conversion. How is yours coming Andrea?|
|A few months ago, my BFF, Jolene, helped me rearrange the blocks on this table topper that I've had in my closet for 2 years. This was a class I took from the wonderful Barb and Alma of Blackbird Designs. I will share again when I get the quilting done. Barb signed the upper right block. Isn't that cool?|
|After our retreat in September, Deb, Cari and I decided to start a SAL together. This is Angel's Song from Shepherd's Bush. I am seriously slacking on this sampler! I need to get on a regular posting schedule so I can stay on task with this. Are you way ahead of me ladies? Post your progress so you can kick me in gear!|
|We have been vacationing in Williamsburg this month. It was a lovely vacation! A small sampling of photos:|
|A peaceful wagon ride in style! Outside the Governors Palace.|
|This is the wig shoppe. How I loved watching this woman make wigs, and share her talent. Wigs go back to Roman times. did you know that?|
|The Governor's Palace. The centerpiece of Williamsburg. As your might remember, I won a pattern from Melissa a few months back featuring this lovely mansion. I was so excited to go home and look at it. I know this is going to be stitched really soon!|
|This is the gardens outside the palace. What a lovely place to sit and sew!|
|They have an extensive gallery of early American portraits. Many famous painting that I had seen in books were at this museum.|
|Oh the cuteness! This is a memory pot. The owner glued special things on it that she wanted to save and remember.|
|A fabulous child statue. I would love to have her in my front room!|
