Getting There

Well, I guess it is Happy Belated New Year!  One of my quilt guild friends asked me last week why I had not been blogging.  It never occurred to me that I had not been blogging and so I am now puzzling through that one myself.  Where did the time go?  We had wonderful holidays and I got to enjoy our daughter for 3 weeks, so not much sewing accomplished.

Our daughter left Monday for Turkey to work in a K-12 school for Syrian refugees.  She will only be there about 6 weeks and is helping the teachers and grade 12 students with English proficiency.  She is going as a volunteer and is excited about seeing another part of the world.

Off on a new adventure

So now no more excuses for no sewing.  I finished the 12th block of the Threads of Memory quilt offered by Barbara Brackman on the Civil War Quilts blog.
Final Block

All 12 Blocks Finished!!  WooHoo

 I went to the LQS on Tuesday and found some fabrics for the setting triangles and main border.  There is still more fabric to select for inner borders, but I think I am headed in the right direction.

Someone asked me to post a photo of my finished garland that I put together for Christmas.  Here it is

It really  made a nice effect on the banister.

The Tree Ripe truck is coming in about 20 minutes to the mall nearest my house with a load of Honeybells.  They are so delicious and sweet.  So this is a short post with a happy ending!
