Quilty Pleasures

I recently took over leadership of the local American Sewing Guild neighborhood group that concentrates on quilting.  We had a meeting today and worked on the Lucky Charms table runner from the book, Fast and Furious, Quilting As You Go.  We had all of the pieces cut before we started and many of us finished before we left.  I decided mine needed some buttons and I found the perfect ones in my button box when I got home...imagine that!

Here it is on the kitchen table.  It's so great to have a new finished project!

I know, I know

Yes, the summer has come and gone and it looks like the fall has come and almost gone too...and I haven't done any blogging. Work has over taken my life this year. I am so exhausted by the time I get home that I can barely think. I'm finally beginning to think again, maybe blogging won't be far behind. (This post is a good start, don't you think?)
I do have some things to show and as soon as I take some photos I will share them here. Until then here a few of the happy things I experienced in the last few months...

Our niece's new baby girl...isn't she a beauty?

One of my favorite summer had at least two blossoms all summer!

My baby sister and her sons after she finished running 26.2 miles...26.2 miles? How does anyone do that?

My quilting buddies on our mystery getaway...I'm taking the photo so I'm not in it. There's nothing better than good friends!
