I'm back!

A little bird reminded me that it has been awhile since my last post. I agree! 

The past few weeks have been quite eventful but unfortunately they've also been very time consuming and I haven't had many spare moments to write a post. Let's see, I interviewed for and started a new job, I went on a quilting retreat, we started painting our basement, I hit a deer (I'm ok and after some repairs and some paint my car is too), went to the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild sew in, moved my crafting stuff back downstairs into my new nook, my niece was born and we hosted my parents at our house when they came up to meet her, we moved our computers and desks back downstairs, went to Roanoke for Thanksgiving, bought a dinning room table and buffet, and painted the dining room. Whew!

What little spare time I did have was mostly spent eating, cleaning, or sleeping. I did manage to make a few sales from my Etsy shop and send those out but absolutely no sewing has been done since the retreat on the 5th-7th with the Cabin Branch Quilt Guild and the sew in on the 13th. I'm so behind! Hopefully I can catch up tonight after we finish the second coat on the dining room walls. 

My blocks are due for the do.Good Stitches {A Charity Bee}. This month we were asked to make yellow and white blocks in any style we wanted. This is a tough one for me because I don't actually have a lot of yellow. Hopefully I can scrounge something up and finish those up tonight. Since I don't have anything to show you, you should go check out the blogs of the other ladies in my bee: 

Krista of Spotted Stones
Muriël of Hopfaldera

Hopefully the next time I post I will have some great pictures to show you!!!

Happy Quilting!
