Better Late Than Never

Hi Guys!  Did you miss me?!  I've missed all of you.

I am currently writing this post at the library because my computer is still broken.  I have been quilting SO MUCH, and I haven't been able to show you!  It stinks!

I finally got some much needed pictures taken, and then I remembered that I still had photos from this spring that I never was able to share.  As I look out the window I see beautiful orange and yellow trees, yet these photos were taken in MAY (disgraceful), when the cherry blossoms were out.

I finished another top made from my pattern "When In Rome".   I had been staring at the fabric collection "April Showers" from Bonnie and Camille for months, when I finally broke down and bought the last I could find.  I was curious how this quilt would turn out with a smaller scale print in the center/borders, and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

 My friend and I took a drive on Old Mission Peninsula this past May to take a gander at the beautiful cherry orchards.  I truly believe that this is one of the most gorgeous places on the planet, and I always feel so blessed to be able to visit with just a short drive.
 I can't wait to get this one quilted, and get it on my bed!  (one other fun secret is that I bought a longarm machine!!! Yay!!!....More on that later)  For now, I will just leave you with photos of these beautiful trees.

Thanks for joining me!  Stay tuned, because there is A LOT more coming soon!
