Ack... I am behind on posting.

Okay, so I have not been good about keeping up with the blog… But I have been working hard. I finished 4 tops, quilted 3 quilts, finished 4 swaps and began another doll quilt. All while getting an A- in my first graduate class, a 13 day vacation, my sisters Florida wedding and Texas reception and my husband changing jobs and stressing me out!

I finished a quilt for my mom’s long time friend. I delivered it last week and am so glad it is done. I love bright colors and crazy design and this is pretty muted and tradition…

Speaking of muted and traditional my Twisted Mystery #4 is very much so… But I cannot post a picture until the quilts are on their way home at the end of the month. I got this done right before my big 13 days vacation and am pretty happy with how it turned out.

I finished the first of two Quilts of Valor my Mother’s groups made this summer. I only have to bind the one and then I will document it as well.

I got Ronin’s pirate top complete (finally) and it is at the quilters with Zach’s. I told the lady I did not need them by Christmas and she thanked me (she was swamped) and said I would be first in line after the holidays. So they will be back soon, hopefully I can get caught up by then.

I am working on my Doll Quilt Swap #5…slowly! It is due in Europe on the 1st and I just finished the top today. No pics yet, but I will add some once it is finished. Lets just say gnomies and mushrooms...

After that I have a choice of what to work on, current leaders include Dianne’s quilt, Stan’s Quilt, about 12 different sets of swap blocks or a quilt for my newly married sister and her husband. I never get choices!!! I can’t decide!
