Back from Blogging Break

When I checked the date of my last post I could hardly believe it has been so long since I posted.  Life sure gets in the way of quilting sometime.
July the 28th we were blessed with a new  Grand daughter "Evelyn Irene " so I have been busy helping my Daughter however I can.  At the moment she is battling a case of mastitis.

My DH has some compilations from the motorcycle accident he had a while back and we have also been dealing with this.  Things do seem to be smoothing out a bit so I have a little time to get back to what relaxes me.
First I would like to thank Kris from Lavender Quilts for the nice gift I won on her blog.
Don't you just love it when something arrives all wrapped in pretty paper and tied with a bow.
I know I do.

I won this christmas pattern by Jan Patek really cute.  Thanks Kris.

I find if I can't quilt I tend to buy books about quilting. Like I really need more books.  
Someone once told me you don't have to need something to buy it so  I picked these up the other day.  
I really like both of them and hope to follow through and make something from each book.

Happy stitching,


  1. first of all congrats to you for having such a cute grand daughter.. she is too adorable.. hope your daughter will get rid of the problem soon.. i also suffered from the same problem 4 years ago..

  2. For the mastitis.. hot washcloth on the area. Been there. My mom had me soak in the tub with a hot washcloth on the area.

  3. Evelyn is just precious and I know you are enjoying time with the babies even if you can't quilt for a while. Been missing your posts but know you've been busy!

  4. What a treasure Evelyn is - so sweet.
    Very nice you can help mom out too - hope she feels better soon, DH as well.
    Enjoy your new books and pattern!
