June already!

I can't believe half the year is gone already. Where does the time go?

I have found that working for the Post Office is challenging. I am always training and learning new things. Hopefully there is a new job in the near future that will give me career status with more benefits and more pay and of course more training LOL. I love it.

My longarm business is moving along. Hard to sew when you work full time but for me sewing has always been a stress relief. Here is Alice's quilt I just finished yesterday. Quilting these preprinted panels lets you really play with the design. I love it when my customers that say 'Do what ever it needs!'

So much fun. I wish I had gotten a picture of her holding the quilt. It always seems the pick up is rushed so I never get one.

I have a great Chicago Bears quilt finished and ready for pickup by another customer. I need pictures of it yet. Its a big one!

Now to sew for myself a little. Will I get one done for fair entry this year? I have a month to maybe.

The flowers are blooming. I need to do some division on my carnivorous plants. So much to do and so little time. We are painting the outside of house and I have been doing some landscaping at the studio.

Off to sew!

Wow. It's been a long time since I've blogged here. Had a great retreat weekend with friends in DeWitt Iowa at the Lutheran Grace Camp put on by the SewMuch quilters. We retreated from Friday till today.

We even slept on bunk beds. Well bottom ones anyway.

I made a colonial pine block quilt top. I did not take a picture so will have to post that later.
