I'm sad to leave my beautiful garden, which is looking rather lush....that's gardenspeak for overgrown with weeds, ;-). I have found a home with a lovely garden though, and I am eager to begin making it my own. I've already been busy looking through my gardening books and magazines, as I pack them away no less, which slows down the whole process considerably!
I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone in the blogosphere and returning to a more normal routine of quilting, posting, chatting and reconnecting with you once again!
My first attempt at paper piecing. I'm quite please with the stars and really enjoyed making them. I took a paper-piecing class at www.craftsy.com and couldn't wait to get started. Thankfully I went to a quilting retreat soon after the class and managed to get a few stars done. I finished the rest once the house sold and I could bring my sewing machine out once again.
Here's a current project, my first attempt at a lone star. One more diamond to go then I have to put everything away. I have some backing fabric selected, but it's packed away, goodness knows where. I'll find it when I move to the new house....eventually.
Signed up for a mystery quilt class in the spring and I'm still working on it. I enjoyed the class, but I'm not jazzed about my fabric selection. Even so, I signed up for another mystery quilt class this week.
Here's a view of my current backyard, taken in early June.
Here's a photo of my new yard. Smaller, yes, but there's lots of potential here!
