I've been having fun with watercolors lately. 

A bit of the process:

Red Poppies

I have an obsession with watercolor flowers.


I know today's chevron is probably tomorrow's floral wallpaper.....
but I just don't care. I'm lovin' this guy. I just wish somehow I had more time in life. 

And I wish that blogger wasn't having issues & would stop rotating my pics the wrong way. Ugh.

Wonky Star Baby Quilt

Yay! I have another finished quilt! 

This is my first quilt - start to finish - completed in sooo long. 

I am such a fan of the Wonky Star. I love the look. I love to make them. I love a chance to put some of my horded scraps to good use.

Two Quilts Finished!

These 2 quilt tops were made forever ago, and I've finally been able to do the quilting and finish them! It's so exciting to actually have a finish! 

 I wasn't sure how quilting would go after a 3 year break. I was happy my machine still ran pretty smoothly and it felt so good to be quilting again. 

The quilting on this second one isn't my fave. I don't love my thread choice & definitely feel like a need a bit more practice quilting again.  

But it made a little girl really happy. That makes me happy.

I'm also learning how to do the binding all by machine. I really hope that gets better with practice.
I've always had issues with my right hand, but after having a tumor removed from my thumb and growing too much scar tissue, I just can't hold a needle and do hand stitching anymore. Bummer.
I'm not loving my bindings right now, but I'm hopeful they'll get better.  

Happy Quilting!

Why do people Blog?

I haven't updated my blog in...about 2 years...that's a long time. I haven't been consistently updating my blog for almost 3 years...that's a really long time. I've really missed the blogging community. I basically quit blogging after a series of health issues, surgery's, moving and some other changes that just made life feel a little crazy. Something had to give, and blogging was one of those things. It's also been about 3 years since I have really been able to quilt. One of my true loves. Life is still crazy, I will probably always have weird health issues, but at least I've been able to do a little painting and just recently even a little quilting!
As a mentioned, I've really missed blogging, so here we go again!
