I am so sorry I have been missing for so long.  Between awful weather, creating my quilt for Japan, new cushions for my cousin, income taxes, there just wasn't anything very exciting to write about.  Now I do have some pictures and new things to tell you about.

I see some new followers and thank you for picking my blog.  I also want to thank those that have left comments, it is pretty exciting when you first start blogging to get those comments as you all know.  I hope I can offer some interesting projects and reading.

I recently won a magazine, Quilting Art from a draw at  Monika does beautiful fiber art postcards from photos she takes of the prairies.  I love her work and she puts her whole self into each project.  Stop buy and take a look, you will be impressed.

I am  making a couple cushion covers for my cousin.  I planned to have these at her home by Easter but, of course, that didn't happen.  I can't show you a picture of them until she gets them.

I hope everyone has a great Easter holiday and I will check in with you later next week.


I have completed my quilt and I am very pleased with out it turned out.  The quilting design was from a tutorial that you can see here  I love how the center is a diamond pattern.  Hope you enjoy what I have done.

The backing for the quilt is a microfiber throw I purchased and it is so cuddly and soft.

If you hope over to here Intrepid Thread you can enter for a fabric giveaway and see her new shop. The fabric design is delightful especially for me looking out the window and 4" of fresh, heavy snow!!!  Where is Spring?
