First Blog Post in a Long Long Time

Well, Why not begin by stating the incredibly obvious!

You would be bored if I told you why. No special reason, I just got caught up in doing other things, and got out of the habit. The more time that went by, the harder it was to begin again. It started out with not having much to blog about, because the projects I was working on were not projects I felt comfortable sharing, for one reason or another, then, I just got out of the habit. 

Well, I have to start back someplace, right?

Here is what I have been working on most recently. 

This is a graduation from college gift for a young man who is the son of someone I who has been one of my dearest friends since high school. I know that I have mentioned Susan to you before. Last year she bought these 2 quilts from me.

Now I am working on a graduation present for her son, J.D., who will be graduating from college this coming spring. I think it is the Theater department of Oklahoma City University that he is graduating from, but I get confused on the details when it comes to things like "University of" vs. "something University". I think it's the theater department, but it could be drama, or performing arts, or something like that. Anyway, if I wait until I get all of those details straight, I'll never start posting again.

Here's the the top 2 thirds of the quilt on my design wall:

And, here is part of the bottom third waiting to be sewn together, on my portable design wall.

So that is what I have been up to recently. That, and hibernating  from the cold. I know it is a lot warmer in Georgia than it is up north, but, it has been colder than I am accustomed to. At least there has been more cold weather than I am accustomed to.

I hope you are finding a way to stay warm, wherever you are. Nothing like your current quilting project to take your mind off the cold. If that doesn't work, my advise is to try hot chocolate. 

Thanks for stopping by!
