March 1, 2018
I know the old saying is...in like a lion and out like a lamb...when it comes to the month of March, but right now our March is pretty lamb-like. I'm excited to be getting back into blogging again, I've really missed it a lot, though I must have needed to have a break since I had been gone so long from the blog.
I have been doing a bit of quilting and finished my Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage Quilt. Although I didn't do the sew along, I had gone on a local quilt shop bus shop hop trip and the theme was Midwest Farm Girls featuring the Farm Girl Vintage book and that was in 2016. It only took me two years to get it done :)
One reason why I had been MIA from the blog was that at the Madison Quilt Expo last September I had purchased a Baby Lock Crown Jewel 3 long arm machine and in the first part of November I had gone to a getaway down in St Louis Missouri to learn my machine, it was a 4 day training on my machine and frame. It was awesome!
My mom had made quilts for all her grandchildren when they had their first baby and when she passed she had left 6 baby quilts not done. So, I took all the fabrics and her pattern ideas and I'm finishing them for her, so now I have 2 down.
So, this is some of what I have been doing since being gone from the blog and it's great to be back.
