Aaaaaand I’m Back!

Yes, it’s been a while since I blogged.  What a nice summer vacation.  but more about that sometime soon.

DQS7!  Here’s a little peek at what I’ve been up to:

IMG_7885I think my swapee is going to like it.  I was inspired by a little trip to Sisters, Oregon.  I was there just two days before the big outdoor show–and I couldn’t shift our trip a single bit.

I KNOW! I cried.

But there were a large number of quilts already on display inside the businesses in town, so I got to see those.  And my over-indulgent husband wasn’t satisfied with my purchases until I had been back inside The Stitchin’ Post three times buying whatever struck my fancy.

I KNOW! I cried.

I saw a number of gorgeous and inspirational quilts from Jean Wells’ book (and when I bought the book, I found ONE copy on the shelf which had been signed by Jean!):

And I think I’m finally ready to blog again.
