Crawling Back!


That might be my intro for the next couple of post.  It reminds me of a time when life was not so complicated!

I am slowly on the upward slope to improved health. This has been a long ordeal and I can't wait until the day when this is all behind me.

I have yet to sit down and do some piecing.  I actually plan on doing some of that this week, but for now I want to share with you my HQ haul for my Ava girl!

I recently purchased these 5 rulers:
HQ Half Circles

HQ Mini Ruler

HQ Right Angle

HQ Straight Edge Ruler


I have yet to do any ruler work with Ava, in fact I have yet to do any real work with her!  I have been told several times just to get a quilt and quilt it.  I am still a little gun shy about that.  I have a couple of quilts that I made in the very beginning of my quilting journey that I can work on, but even on those quilts, I am terrified! Trust me I an not worried about damaging the quilts at all, I am more concerned about wasting thread!  

I'm still working on the crossword puzzle quilt.  I have decided to work on another project until I can make more progress with the taking and printing of pictures.

I found a pattern on Moda Bake Shop that I have been wanting to make for sometime now. I will get busy shopping for fabric, so I can start the creating process!

Hey- you - guuuys! Yep, I went old school on ya!!!   Do you remember that from the opening credits of the Electric Company?  That show along with Sesame Street, I could have watched all day long without going outside!!!

I didn't mean to be gone so long.  Just as soon as my hubby and daughter health improved, my health took a downward spiral.  For the last past several of weeks I have been on and off of bedrest.  I have been slowly recovering and for the first time in my quilting life - I did NOT think of quilting, I had NO desire to look at anything quilting related except occassionally looking on Instagram when I was not so medicated.  I  am slowly coming back around and will hope to be able to share some goodies that I had purchased right before I became ill.  So I hope in the next couple of days, I will have quilty stuff to share!!!

Please keep me and my family in your prayers while we are trying to recovery from this.
