Helllllloooooo out there

Well, that was fun. Closed down the shop for three weeks. Oops. didn't think I'd be gone that long, and if the sun hadn't come out today, I might have delayed it a bit longer. I think I'm working like the groundhog, only backwards. It's the last dregs of a long, gray, wet winter and I lost my motivation to jump back in. Inertia again. I relapsed.

I have been sewing, though. This is the longest quilt project ever for me. A wonky log cabin in Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley. I am inspired to quilt diagonal wavy lines from a pic I saw here. Laura J did a beautiful job of a grey modern quilt. I visit her quilt every day and just stare at it when I should be finishing mine. I was also very envious of her sunshine, but coping better today as I have my own.

Back on the grid today, moving among the living again. And added a little clearance section to my shop to celebrate the warm rays.

Hope you get some vitamin D today, where ever you are.


  1. welcome back.
    i can't seem to link to Laura j's inspiration quilt, but ill poke around flickr to see if i can find it.

    your quilt looks super!

  2. Welcome back. I know what you mean about the gray and wet. I kept my office shades open today to absorb the sunshine. I need all the vitamin D I can get! (Oh! I finished a quilt for give a kid a quilt and blogged it yesterday. The one you sent fabric for which is already a quilt top is next in the queue for quilting. Hopefully next weekend!)

  3. I got some sunshine too today - but it was COLD. So I have old lady cold hands that won't warm up. great.

    Loving that top - you are just flying along, you know that, don't you?
