Just a Little Update!

I've been doing some quilting and have added a few more blocks to my Chimney Sweep quilt!  Unfortunately, we leave tomorrow for a month long trip to FL - so no quilting will be happening during that time!  I'll still be looking for new ideas and inspiration, and I might even start a penny rug!  I've been wanting to do one for quite some time and just have never gotten around to it!

I was also hoping our mail system here would deliver a quilt book I ordered (last month)!  But to no avail...maybe when I get back I'll be able to show you.

For the last few days, my sewing room (aka: the guest room) has been turned into a suitcase packing station!  I'm headed that way know to zip those suitcases closed, get them downstairs and ready for a early (4:00 a.m.) departure for the airport!

Until next time...

New Year, New Quilt!

I have started a new quilt!  I saw the inspiration for this quilt several months ago on the front of a quilt book and immediately knew it was something I was going to do.

I bought the material and then let it sit for awhile because I had other projects going.  But with the beginning of this new year, I figured I had a good excuse to start a new quilt!

I've got the first four blocks done and I'm so happy with how they look!  Hopefully I'll be able to keep the motivation moving and get some major progress done.  We have a trip coming up in two weeks, and I know things will get stalled for awhile, so I really need to keep moving while I have the chance!

I wish y'all a Happy New Year and hope this year will be the best yet!  Has anyone else started a new quilt in the new year?

So, here we go!  The start of a new venture.  Another quilting blog joins the ranks of thousands of others!  I'm just a missionary and Mom to 4 kiddos, but I have lots of ideas and fabric to keep me busy!  Now if I could just find the time to get it all done!

I make no promises as to how often I'll post or what all I'll get accomplished, but join with me, because it's sure to be a fun ride!
