So you might (or might not) be wondering what I've been up to!   Holidays are always such a crazy time aren't they?  Now we've moved gracefully into January.  Here in Rochester, January is a funny month.  We go from 50 degrees to a day.  So you really can't plan much.   I'm getting ready to head out in a few weeks on a "mid-winter" retreat and I've spent the last week or so trying to pull together my current projects and ascertain which one(s) I might bring with me.

My "Affairs of the Heart" Quilt is forever ongoing.  I don't think this one is going to come with me, but I have made progress!

My "Bloomin Steps" Jewel Box Quilt has come along VERY nicely.  The top is COMPLETE and I've been working on piecing the back.  I will be hand-basting this sucka.  No reason to take this one, it needs to be loaded up on a frame to baste and I'm DEFINITELY not carting the frame out there.

My Bonnie Hunter "Easy Street" top was finished almost a year ago and I haven't touched it.  Really need to move forward with my quilting plans for this one.   Perhaps I'll bring it with me to stare at it a bit...and see if something POPS into my head.

I've been dabbling with teaching Hand Embroidery to some of my guild members.  A dear friend of mine passed away in the Fall and my Hand Embroidery drive kinda dwindled with her.   But I should really get this going again.   Sue would want that.  :-)

I went BONKERS in September & October cutting scraps for a HUGE Halloween Scrap Quilt that I want to do.   I hauled SO much to the Fall Retreat with every intention on working on this the entire time.  For the life of me, I can't even remember now what I did work on at that retreat.  OH!  The Jewel Box Quilt.  I think I overshot on the estimate of how long it would take to get done!  HAHA.  (No one ever does this right?).  That weekend was very bitter sweet regardless.

This would be as easy as grabbing the tote that's all prepped to sew.   Yep.... I think I'll take this one along.

And ..... A NEW project...  We'll just call this "Dexter's Quilt".  :-)  I will be blessed with my FIRST Grandbaby somewhere around March 29th.  It took FOREVER to finally settle on what his quilt would be.  But I got it!!!  :-)   I'll just give you a peek at the few fabrics I picked up earlier today.  :-)

THAT one - is DEFINITELY going.  :-)  In fact, I think I'm going to stop blogging and get it started!  :-)
