Away from the sewing room

My daughter and I headed to CA this weekend, for a little visit to my hubby and some fun in the sun.  LA is a beautiful place to visit, but I am eternally glad that I don't live there! 



 We had a wonderful visit.  We went to Griffith Park, and had a bit of an unintentional hike, then spent a day at Knott's Berry Farm and one at Universal Studios.  It was wonderful to spend some relaxing time with just the three of us - Isadora is very patient and wonderful with her little brother, but some one-on-one time with both parents just isn't something she gets much of, so this was enjoyable for all of us.
Just another 10.5 months, and the separation will be over!

My First Moda Bakeshop Post!

Wow, it's finally here - my first Moda Bakeshop pattern!


I'm so excited - it was such fun to do!

Thanks for stopping by.  As I said, I'm not a professional blogger, but I love to share bits here and there.  I have several more finishes to get posted soon, and have a couple more in the works.  Please stop back again!  

This was really fun project to do - I do love batiks, and these are just wonderful.  The color mix of warms and cools really lent itself well to the final project - in fact I modified my original idea when I saw the great contrast.


Clara (my quilter) did a wonderful stipple in purple on the cool areas, then stitched in the ditch on the warm strip sets, and it really made the stripes just pop out.  


I finally managed to get outside for some pictures close to sunset, and the colors were so vibrant against the winter day, even with the sunshine!


The lack of leaves also let me play with some new photo locations - this is an OLD cherry tree that was growing entw…

Back in action

I finally managed to make some time for some quilting. Two radically different quilts up on the design wall. A paper pieced Tula Pink, and a ribbon box quilt for a very good friend's new baby.
It feels good to finally be back at the sewing machine. The holidays were wonderful, but I think the whole family is glad to be getting back into a routine.
