You will never know true happiness until you have truly loved, and you will never understand what pain really is until you have lost it.

Binding the quilts

The past couple weeks I have been working on binding some of the quilts I want to get finished. I also have some cheater panels that I have been putting binding on. (there are several babies due in the next few months and I don't have time to make a quilt from scratch for everyone!) I dvr a lot of the shows I watch and it's relaxing to tack those bindings while watching television.

Today I Remembered I Have A Blog

I'm not sure who's reading, or I should say not reading.... as it's been a while since I posted something. I did notice that the counter has gone up significantly! I get wrapped up so much in my day-t0-day that I don't have to much time for 'me.'

I will try to be better with this. Leave a post if you're reading! Some quilters have been saying they can't post on my blog......... I don't know the reason.

New Life

Over the past few months I've been constantly reminded of how precious life can be. Those that know me are familiar with my personal journey the past couple of years. I had a life change experience 2 years one month and 3 days ago. I decided the best way to get thru this was to not make quick decisions and to focus on the daily and not to far into my future. That has helped me I believe to make more positive decisions that effect my life. It's not been easy road to follow and I still have a long ways to go. But, I'm seeing things more clearly now. One of those things was my decision to go back to college for a while and take a class that could better be. I've had an enormous support group and grateful for the family and friends that are cheering me on! This would be less of a challenge if I was

Also, I'm still working on believing that I have a postive influence on those around me.

This all brings me to sharing with you the news that I have a new granddaughter!! Today she is 22 days old! And, she's as beautiful as my daughter. I had the privilege of meeting my gd on Monday. I can't begin to describe to you how this felt. Just know that I have softened some and will be better for it! As will those around me. I wish the best for this tiny life and know that my daughter and son-in-law have many years of once-in-a-lifetime moments ahead.

Out of respect for my daughter I won't be posting pictures on-line. But, I will share a photo of the first quilt I made for her baby!! This is a quilting blog after

Simple Little Runner

I followed a link from Quilting With Debi to the Moda Bakeshop. And, while I was browsing around in there I found this little simple little runner. I could imagine all kinds of fabric I could pull out and use! I came across this packet of fat quarters someone had given me as a secret sister gift.

I think this will make a pretty fall table runner. I believe I will have enough to make two of them with these fat quarters. I'll put mine away for next fall and give the other one as a gift!
