Taking a break

I have had several inquiries about my absence. I am taking a short break from blogging while I prepare to move.

I have decided to move to Portland to be closer to my family, so there is much to do.

The sewing machine has been put away for awhile, I am still following what others are doing and can't wait to get re settled so I can start a new project.


In the mean time I will leave you with a few photos of my lastest quilt.

Rosebud Lane.







































And a top topper I recently finished. This is a Thimbleberries pattern.
