Alright Already, I'll Update my Blog!!!!

No, this is not for you, my casual reader, but for local quilting friends!!! They've been driving me nuts, as to why they keep coming to check out my blog and NO updates!! Geez!!!! LOL

I feel like this girl lately!!!
I'm not sick but just still trying to get over the back/ knee problems. I'm exercising, seeing the chiropractor twice a week, and waiting for an MRI  that the orthpeadic surgeon has ordered!  So I havn't been in my studio for weeks and weeks! So not a lot to show you! I'm still working on my hand pieced quilt though and really enjoying it!!
I'll show you a picture of a quilt a friend finished recently..isn't it gorgeous!!
I finished my mug rugs for the Quilting Gallery swap and they've been received by my partner Amy, in Louisiana, here they are.

I'm starting to get excited about our annual trip to Lancaster Pa for the APQS show and lots of shopping and fun with friends. We rent a house and have lots of girl fun and craziness!!! Six days of lots of laughter!!!
I hope my little post will appease my Darling friends!!!
We had a little sewing fun together though, a little impromptu get together and calm hand quilting for the girls and hand piecing for me. So relaxing!!!

I love hand Piecing!!

This is my newest project, all hand piecing and using French General's Rouenneries!

The brown is just the underneath tablecloth.

Aren't the fabrics just gorgeous!!!
I havn't blogged much since before Christmas, been trying to work out the back problems....they are now fixed with the help of a great chiropractor but it turns out the knee problems were separate, and I have a miniscus tear!!! I will be seeing the orthopaedic surgeon on Tuesday!!!! So enough of that...since I mostly sit with ice on my knee, I've really come along on my newest Hand piecing project!! I'm crazy for French General Fabrics so this quilt is very special to will be a long time yet for a finish though!!!! I havn't even been in my studio for a few weeks.I hope everyone else is healthy and looking forward to's been a Long winter here already!!!!
