I'm still here

I still want to get this blog started, I am trying to figure out how to add a side bar to list the quilts I am working on but I have not got it the way I want yet. I also need to get better at taking pictures as I work, but I am going to dedicate myself to this project. I love to read other quilters blogs and I want to journal what I am doing.
In the mean time work is progressing on the CWBQ, I have finished my third block - which is block 2 - but have to take pictures of it. I am now working on block 1 in the quilt. I also finished a small tablerunner that I received in a gift exchange at my small groups annual quilt retreat. This tablerunner was from Cathy and had the cutest fabric in it. It looks very good on my coffee table. The basket on the quilt was my daughter's good idea. I wanted something decorative on the coffee table but yet something that the cutest grandbaby in the world would not get into trouble for playing with. Smart daughter said to toss all the wine corks I save into a wire basket - TA DAH. I have been saving corks for quite a while, on special occasions we like to date and initial them I just didn't know what to do with them. Too Cute.

Well, that is all for today. Spring is coming to the midwest, I see a bright yellow bush blossoming in my neighbors yard. Yea Spring!
Happy Stitching...


  1. Your tablerunner looks nice, good colors and the wine corks - very clever.
    I also love your CWBQ blocks, they are really beautiful. I hope you are enjoying the journey.
