It Has Been A Long Time!

 
... and I have missed you, My Lovelies! I lead a very busy life these days and family needs have been great. I guess that will continue to be as Mother is now 95 and needs a lot of care and Hubby is 74 with quite a lot of health issues. I must say I had lost my mojo - I think that happens to a lot of us from time to time - but I must say it is back with a vengeance also!
Above, just a little Sneak Peek showing you the wonderful Clover binding clips, no more little blood spots on my new quilts.


My next project - it is going to be an Improv quilt. Here are my starter fabrics, just love the combo and I think I will add quite a few solids. It will be a Topsy Quilt and just grow, should be fun and let's hope a success too, lol!
After much deliberation this new baby has come into the home. I do have a wonderful Janome Memorycraft 6600 which is on the market. I have owned a Pfaff previously and love my Janome but with the prosthesis in my left shoulder, was having difficulty attaching the quilting foot. Both have built in scissors, which I find are such a blessing, so it will be interesting to see if I have made the right decision.
Here's baby Nate, now 5 months - missing him heaps, but I get to see him on Skype and I know it will not be too long until I see him again.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend stitching or partying - this time of year seems to come around so quickly, so have fun!
Hugs - Lurline
