A little catch up

It has been a while and I won't guarantee I will be posting again real soon as life has a  mind of its own at the moment .  I will say life isn't always fair , far from it and I am going through a tough time at the moment so don't give up on me , I see I've lost some followers , who can blame them 😊
  Even when the chips are down I try to continue to create , otherwise I'd be a total loss .
I guess since I was last here I haven't shared the fact my quilt The Splendid Sampler won the only award given at our quilt guild show , the viewers choice award, which to me is the most important as those who visited vote on their favorite quilt.

 I have also finished the flimsy for On Ringo Lake a QAL with Bonnie Hunter as her mystery quilt . This was a lot of work and my first Bonnie mystery but I doubt it will be my last , it was really a lot of fun to make. The good news is it is now on the frames to start quilting next Tuesday,  yeah .

While on the topic of finishes I also finished the checkerboard quilt designed by Darlene of a Needle Pulling Thread.  This was to be a block of the week but I loved making them so much on my vintage Singer I kept right on going and then had it quilted by Lynda Campbell at Fiddle Stitches in Mabou . I really love how this turned out,  it is back in her shop now hoping someone will love it enough to buy it.

 I've decided to join in the Moda Blockheads BOW , here are a few of my blocks so far .
I've made a few more since this photo was taken.  I am loving this so far . 
 I could show you more of  what I've been up to but I think that is enough for now.  
 Thanks for stopping by , I appreciate your visit .
