Hello?? Hello?!!?

Hey, over here, remember me?
Wow, it's November and SO much has happened since my last post and I didn't see any of it coming. Life has a way of making you roll and here is the very short version.
That new job I started in June has come to an end, due to my decisions. (all good) I'm head over heals in love with my best friend, someone I've known for 6 years. We got together the end of Sept, hence my lack of quilting and blogging. Finally, my dad had successful colon cancer surgery and is now settled in AZ for the winter.
All that means LIFE IS GOOD!
I've done a few customer quilts and am excited to get back to some of my projects. Quilting has been on hold while I have settled into my new routine.

The one thing I've continued to work on has been my Beyond the Cherry Tree. Wow, that's a lot of hand quilting that I decided to do on this baby, but I'm loving the look of it.

I've started my 6 month workshop at Fabric Etc in Bellingham, WA; two classes completed and so far no one has jumped off the edge, so I must be doing ok with my students. I love sharing the tips and tricks I've gained over the years. It can be so frustrating if you don't know some tips and short cuts, and that's the focus of my workshop.

Fall is here,it's the perfect time to snuggle under a quilt with a cup of tea. I've got an injured cat snuggled up to me and we are happy!
