My first 2010 quilt finish

I think this says it all!
I have had this sign hanging in my kitchen forever and it never loses its charm!
Like many of you, I find that I am blogging less. It's not that I don't enjoy it anymore but it's a time management reality that you just can't do everything! I still stop by or, depending on the day, whizzzzzzzzzzz through my favorite blogs to check on people and see the work in progress. After about three years of blogging, I toy with the idea of discontinuing my blog since I'm not very prolific of late. However, every now and then, I still want a place to post my quilts. What about you gals? Ever think about closing up the old blog??

This last month is a blur. I've been working with a personal trainer two mornings a week before work as well as taking bootcamp classes on my non-training days which requires me to be at the gym by 6:30 am. Needless to say, I am in bed pretty early these days. I didn't know that there were muscles in some of the places I ache!! But it is starting to pay off. I am seeing great results and feel super. It doesn't hurt that my trainer is named Kyle and is 26 years old! Hey, I may be older but I'm not dead!! LOL!

My quilting is still on a bit of a back burner though I did get to meet with Libby at her house a few weeks ago and we had a great sewing day! I am almost done with our project. The applique is just about finished (just a blanket stitch around the wool and homespun) and I hope to quilt it in the next couple of weeks. And speaking of Libby, her house is beautiful and her quilts, ladies, they are to DIE for! She has them all through her house and they are fabulous! I even got to meet her worms! We will be getting together again in a couple of weeks at the Machine Quilters' Expo in Providence, RI for their quilt show. I'm super excited to introduce her to a few of my local quilting friends.

I also just returned from a quilting weekend sponsored by our Mother guild and finished this little beauty. I found this on Kim's Big Quilting Adventure 2 years ago and always wanted to make it. It is bound and I will put the sleeve on tonight. It will be up for next St. Pat's Day. (I told you I was quilting slowwwwly!)

I also made a bit more headway on my taupe and blue quilt. GOSHHH is that a boring project! I love the look but the next time I talk about making a KING SIZE quilt, somebody pleeeeze slap me!
My DH and I are headed to San Antonio again next week for the Women's Final Four and our spring/summer weekends are filling quickly with concerts, baseball and beach weekends so I'm hoping to get some quilting done but there are only 24 hours in a day!~
Well, til I stumble by this way again,

Quilt til you wilt!~

Latest finish and a preview

I am taking this one with me to Florida for Cayden who is now ON THE MOVE. Just started walking! Not sure why the pictures are so pinky! I ...
