Back In The Saddle!

Hello all! I finally managed to find some sewing inspiration! It came from the first group I joined on Flickr. What could be more motivating than a deadline? :)

I joined the S.T.U.D. (Swap Till U Drop) swap for Jan/Feb 2011. My partner was Kolleen (QuiltyBee on Flickr) and WOW! Did she make the perfect mini quilt for me!


To me it looks like sunflowers. It’s so bright and happy! I just love it. It’s about 12” square. I’ve decided to hang it on the wall opposite my front door. That way everyone who comes to see me will see it too!

I mailed the mini I made for Kolleen today, so I will blog about it later, after she’s received it. I didn’t want to send it away! I have pieces cut to make another one and I just might do that.

In other news, I start an adult education course on Thursday. I’m looking forward to it! It will update my job skills and at the end of the course (end of June) they will help me find a job. I’ve also moved into my bigger apartment. It’s so much nicer and I use the extra bedroom for my sewing room. It seems to be working well and I hope I will be happy here for a long time. I don’t want to move again anytime soon. Moving is awful!


  1. I DO like it!! and to meee...yep-yep-yep....it DOES look like flowers! Happy ones YES!!
