Hi Everyone!! I am back, well I have never really gone away, just life got in the way! I am now a proud Grandma of two Adorable Boys. Oliver is almost 2 and Henry is 4 1/2 months. My son got married, so only have my baby home. Well, she is not a baby, 27 yrs old, but she just got her Master Degree as a Registered Dietician, so the last couple of years have been a blur. But I have continued to sew...mostly making baby quilts and hand applique when I can find an hour or two. My Love Letters Quilt is Still being worked on. I believe I am on Block 5, but love to work on that at night (pics to follow). I hope all of you have stayed safe during these trying times. And, I miss all my blogging friends, More to come.... Mary

Hi, I have not blogged since November and here it is July!!! It was a rough winter to say the least, after losing my Mom. I have been stitching but not as much as I would have liked. It was just hard to get my head wrapped around anything after the holidays and now we are into July!! I do still follow all my favor quilt bloggers and I hope to get more done this second part of the year. Hugs to all, Mary

Well Happy New Year to all quilting blogland! I am here....since Thanksgiving, My 92 yr old Mom's health has deteriorated slowly, she is back in the hospital as I write this. So, my quilting life has taken a backseat...I am still working on my blocks from When the Cold Wind Blows, but am very behind in a lot of other projects, therefore, I just wanted those to know that I am still around and am checking in on others blogs :) While sitting in my Mom's hospital room, I have been catching up on reading some of the many quilting magazines that seem to collect in my house. I read this by Mark Lipinski and it really was like reading works of wisdom. Mark says, "Taking a breath and stitching with intention is taking a forward step to gain physical, creative, spiritual and financial benefits through our creative process slowing down and being present will not only up your quilting game, it can transform every part of life - Slow Stitching Movement by Mark Lipinski. So now I don't feel that bad that I only stitch here and there where I can find time. It seems at night I get a lot of my handwork done, but since Thanksgiving, not so much, so I keep reading what Mark said and it is inspiring to me... I hope all is well with all of you, and I wish you (a little late than never) a very Happy and Healthy 2016. Hugs Mary It is not the destination but the journey that counts (kate knight) ;)

Hi blog! I read a really great post from "Kathy" (forgive me I don't remember blog name, but she talked about keeping up with all our many to do projects and how overwhelmed she felt and I agree or at least as they say "I feel you". I have been feeling that way for some time now. There are just so many projects I am doing or started... Too many to count...too many tabs open in my mind...that I have let some of them really fall to the back... Some have not even gotten to!!! Augh!!! Sigh sigh...sorry I am rambling...but Fall is one of my favorite times of the year and really wanted some fall wall hangings that I never got to so....I bought yes bought 2 on etsy. And want to share w you: the first is by "Karen Hahn of HorseAndBuggyCountry"...beautifully stitched wool applique...well worth the price
