What’s new?

I know, I know, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted.  I was busy from the end of March until the beginning of May working on a quilt for the boss at work.  She celebrated 25 years at the company, and in planning the party we decided that I’d make a quilt with areas for everyone to sign.  I think I planned a little too well, as the quilt was huge!!!  Took me a week to quilt it on my Janome and then took 2 days to hand stitch the binding on.  She loved it though!

I’ve also been spending a lot of time working on cross stitch projects.  With working on this quilt for the last couple of months I didn’t want to work on any other quilting projects, so instead I’ve been working on cross stitch quilts 🙂  I found a series of 5 quilts – one for each season plus a holiday one – and ordered the magazines that had the patterns in them.  I have Spring finished, it’s just not framed yet but will be soon.  I’m currently working on Summer and I’m probably 50% done with that one.  It’s nice to be able to sit on the couch and watch tv or movies with the hubby but still be working on a project.  And I have so many cross stitch projects to do!

Hmmmm….I guess that’s about it….I need to get some things made today for the cookout we are having for Memorial Day…..Until next time!
