Catching up

A snow storm makes for lots of sewing time!
I haven't really had a day of sewing in months, 
and yesterday was the day.

I was able to finally do the bee block for Mary.
She sent us all these great solids and told us to have fun,
make a monkey wrench block,
and there were really no parameters.
How fun is that!

I also finished the courthouse steps top 
and pieced that back with some lovely Nicey Jane
fabric I got on sale!


I promptly realized that my new space doesn't have a good place to baste my quilts.
Well, maybe a smaller quilt, but not this one!
So it will be back to basting my quilts at the office
on my lunch hour, using the conference room.
i don't mind that so much really,
Everyone stops in to see what the heck I am doing,
and, well, quilters do love a reason to show off their latest creation!
This is the one that is going to Victoria's Basic Drive.
Do you have a quilt you could send?

I'll have more to show you in a couple of days . . . 
I think I might have gotten my mojo back!
