What I've been up to lately .....

I haven't blogged much of late because life has been very busy ... but good!

Recently I was privilaged to attend my little sister Erin's wedding ...

My dear parents have just left on a mission for our Church in Finland, and while I'll really miss them over the next 18 months, I am really happy for them and am so grateful for the wonderful example they are in my life!

I've really enjoyed hanging out with family over the last few weeks .....

I've also done a little bit of sewing too :)

I've finally decided on the background fabric for my single girl quilt. It's Robert Kaufman's Quilter's Linen in grey. Thanks Katy for the idea! Now I've got lots of catching up to do ....

I have had some issues with the thread tension of my sewing machine when using my walking foot. So on a recent visit Kate generously let me use her machine to finish the machine quilting on my That Girl Quilt-a-long quilt. I just have the hand quilting in the white borders to go and I'll be done ....

I've also been working on a few other projects, but more on them later ....

I've had a minor operation this week, so I haven't sewn much in the last few days. But I'm really looking forward to a long weekend of spending time with my husband and a bit of quilting. 
I hope you enjoy your long weekend!!


  1. I hope you recover quickly from your operation.
    Your single girl quilt is going to look amazing!

  2. Hope you feel better soon!
    I love your Prints Charming, I dug mine out last week to start a project with charcoal borders and light grey sashing.
    Seeing yours is making me re-think white and light grey.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love the colors you chose! Hope you get well soon. I am cutting SG fabric tonight too!
