I haven't forgotten about quilting. I'm just a bit occupied the past few months with travel and summer yard work and such. I'm presently trying to finish up two quilts. One is a Wizard of Oz quilt that I hope to send to a college roommate of mine. I lived in a house that was divided into two apartments. Four girls lived in one and four in the other....all friends. Recently we gathered for a 35 year reunion of sorts at a local restaurant. This was the first time we had 100% turn out! We passed around pictures - old ones from "back in the day" and more recent ones of our families. I was reminded how one of the girls and I often dressed up as characters from the Wizard of Oz for Halloween. One year we were both munchkins! Anyway, I hope to send her this quilt when I get it finished.
The second quilt I'm trying to finish is a dog quilt. My husband picked out a fabric panel well over a year ago and I've added to it with dog houses, bones and a few pictures of our sweet Golden Retriever.
Both of them are pinned. The Wizard just needs a bit more quilting and a binding. If I'm lucky I'll have them both done before we head out for the beach! I hope to bring a hand sewing project to the beach with me for the evenings....maybe my yo-yo stuff. I want to make a table runner out of yo-yos. So, if I can get them cut and gather up the supplies I'll take that along.
Hopefully they'll be pictures to post soon!
