So much to tell you

I cannot believe it has been so long since I posted.  I have TONS to tell you.  But, I will not cram it all into this one post.  So first off, the Babylock found a new home.  I posted her up on Craigslist on Sunday night and she was off on new adventures on Tuesday morning!  I wonder how she's doing?  I hope she's happy. Here's the weird thing.....the girl that bought her had the same name as a dear friend of mine.  When she responded to the ad, I thought "now why is Lizzie being so formal, and I didn't even know she sewed!"  And then when she showed up at my house to take her on a test drive, she had a friend with her named......MICHELLE!  Parallel Universe and all that crazy stuff!

So, last week I took this class from Karen K Stone.  I love her work and have been dying to take a class from her for a long time.  She does New York Beauties, and some really cool paper piecing techniques.  Here is what I learned while I was there.  It's not the whole thing, it's about half of a spiral (I have more to sew)

More will follow after I finish it.  I don't think I'm going to make a whole quilt out this one, but I do think it will make an awesome pillow for my sofa.  Here is another students work.  And I really want those scissors!  I have this "thing" for scissors.  I just love them and have quite a collection.  But I always want more.....

So, enough for now.  But I have to tell you it feels SO good to be back in blogland!  I have missed you all so much.  I have been keeping up with you on your blogs, though.

  2. I KNOW! I was thinking the exact same thing
