I'M HERE; I'M HERE . . .

Yep, I'm here.  I promise I didn't get lost!  It's just been a busy couple weeks.  After we returned from visiting our son and family in NY, I had a couple days at home before I went to Nashville to babysit for my daughter Anna Maria while she was in Houston at quilt market.

While at her home I was able to play in her studio and use her new Janome Horizon 7700.  Wow what a difference a sewing machine with a larger throat makes.  I was able to machine quilt my friend's 63" x 63" inch quilt.  (And I can show it to you since I gave it to her yesterday.

I did very little knitting while I was in Nashville.  By the time the children (5) were in bed, I was ready for bed myself!
However I was able to finish my sweater after I got home and I actually wore it yesterday.

Now I'm getting ready to work on a baby shower quilt and some hats for a charity project that our church women's group is participating in.  That will be a wonderful way to use up some leftover stash yarn.

This is the plan for my quilt.  There will be 9 of these 9 patches to make a 36" quilt.

So the quilting and knitting continues.
