Sweet Relief

Hello out there!  Where has the time gone?  I've fallen off of the face of the blogging earth.

Emily is over a year now and very close to walking.  She's certainly all over the place these days.  (This would be why I'm not quilting). Its been a total roller coaster ride of a year and she's been sick with ear infections, viruses, and colds more times than I'd like to count. We spent her birthday in the ER for 8 hrs thanks to croup.  Ugh!

Here's Emily on Halloween.

I've only made one quilt over the past 6 months.  Its a pattern from Moda Bake Shop called Charming Hearts.  I made mine out of a Fig Tree Millhouse Inn layer cake I had and added the purple for the background.  I called mine Sweet Relief :)

For the back I found some Fig Tree fabric from another line at 50% off! Woo Hoo!
I had it machine quilted by Quilting Sweethearts- again that whole time thing.  Hank seems to enjoy it.

Not too much else to report!  I've been ever so slowly hand quilting a quilt I made like 3 years ago.  One of these days it will get finished and one of these days I'll have time to quilt again!! (here's a picture of the quilt in this old entry)

I hope you are all doing well and I hope to have a chance to catch up on everyone's blogs- HUGS to you all and Happy Thanksgiving!!
