What's new in the land of the Crazzies???

Lou trying to decide if she really wants to finish that applique project!
I seem to be always too busy, but things shouldoject!!! slow down soon!!! Seems like I say that a lot lately, but this is the year I really learn how to take the time to slow down the mean time, I have lovely friends that make life seem more that there will come a time and when life is slow and easy. One of them is a very special friend indeed. When our annual retreat was cancelled due to an unforeseen problem with the building, Barbara stepped up and invited us all to a mini all day retreat at her beautiful home. It was simply amazing, lots of laughs and fun, fun, fun!!!!
This is what it was like outside!

We had a wonderful Christmas Celebration, with our little group.

I wonder what Dawn is explaining to Lou?

This is a beautiful silver train in silver with blue lights.

Dead Poets Society

That's what I feel this blog has become, but i don't sweat the small stuff! LOL
Oh well, I'll just post when I have time and when, I have something to say!!!
I havn't even posted pictures from the quilt show yet but anyway, you know I have to keep track of my quilts so.....I just found out my nephews new Baby is a girl!!!!!So, look at what I just printed and cut out!!!
I'm going to make a baby quilt for our little Henley with some wonderful Moda Vintage Modern that I've had waiting around for just the right project! Of course I'm making it using Inklingo, and took my inspiration from a free design on the Inklingo site, Cathi's 

......Emma's Butterfly Stars! Don't you just love the fabric I'm using???
I'll have to do this one, at the same time I'm working on my 1.5 inch Patchwork of the Crosses! Of course you know both of the quilts will be hand pieced using Inklingo !!!

Here's a picture of 5 of my blocks, the others have to have the white added! My question here, if you can see, I've put in 5 different colours for backgrounds. Any idea which one or what other colour I should use. I'd love your feedback!!!!
