Hi friends ... I do apologize for kind of dropping off the face of the earth! Is anyone still out there reading ... My summer has been full of travel and family, and I use Instagram mainly, but I do miss blogging. So if you're still reading, I'm committed to keeping you company!
Here's the latest quilt I finished ... A top ... One of my own!!

Well we have our second college graduate! Our daughter graduated from college 2 weekends ago .. I can't believe it! We are so proud ... Magna cum laude and a couple honors cords ... With a degree in theater arts and communications. It is bittersweet ... So happy and proud for her, but sad as she will probably not live at home again. Her degree probably won't land her a job in San Diego ... Maybe Los Angeles, New York or who knows!
It was just a wonderful day. We drove up with my mom .. And our son and his girlfriend came from Michigan. My brother who lives in Chicago surprised us by calling at the last minute to say he could come. It was a wonderful special day, and my blessings just overflow!
We took the opportunity to introduce Kim to Disneyland (son's girlfriend ... She had never been before) ... We had a ball!
It was a perfect day ... Not too hot, not too crowded! They enjoyed a week in San Diego, and went back last week. Nick started a new job on Monday and we are so happy for him. He is due for a change of work environment and are knowing good things are coming for him!
Through it all I've been working hard ...
As if I don't have enough to do, my friend, Erika, taught me how to crochet! I can't stop ...

Hello, hello. Been a busy week, so I have been fighting for my quiling time. I'm working on my stash sample for April's class's, so trying to fit it all in. Just finished this beauty ...

I am keeping myself busy here ... The next quilt I finished is a colorful customer quilt.
I think she's going to love it.
She loves to do the tops, but always asks me to make the backs and binding. Happy to do it as I like making backs and I do love bindings too! I got all the binding almost sewed on and realized I was one strip short ... Haha! Oops ... Guess my math was a little off.

Well my blogging may improve ... I just treated myself and bought an iPad. My main form of communication with this adorable munchkin is FaceTime.
After using my friend's iPad the other day to F/T, I came home and ordered one! Like everything I buy, it was on sale with a discount ... I bought a completely refurbished one with a one year warranty for the price of a new mini iPad. Anyway, how nice it is to read blogs, do Instagram, and Facebook with a large, clear screen! I'm loving it!!
I did a little fabric shopping this week ... If you haven't heard, the Country Loft is closing the end of June. Since I used to work there, I do get a discount. I figured I should buy a little fabric while I still have a discount.
Here's a quilt I worked on this week ... And guess what, it's actually mine!
So what have you been working on this week?

I know I have been absent ... I am deciding to not apologize, but just to know I am having a hard time keeping up with my blogging! I have been working hard at longarming and creating samples for my classes. I took a vacation the end of February to see my granddaughter and son in MI ... My daughter went with me and we had great fun! Love that special little girl ... She turned 3 while we were there.
Here's quilts I've been working on longarming ...
