Movin' on

We have two sleeps here at our winter home before we return to our summer home where it is apparently still winter?  It snowed at 'home' last night.  UGH. 

My machine is packed and I have taken pictures of my sewing supplies and equipment because I know I won't remember what I have here in this house when it is time to pack and return. 

In the meantime, I have completed my red/white maple leaf blocks and ready to create something for Quilts of Valour when I am home (and hiding from winter weather). 

Two weeks ago, I went on a shop hop with the quilters here in our park and we visited Patrick Lose's studio in northern Phoenix.  WOW.  He tapes his online quilting show in his studio and the walls were covered in his bright wall hangings, the fabrics were luscious and I was in awe.

One thing I am really going to miss is the glorious colours in my backyard as well as the newly developing oranges and grapefruit.  They will grow for 10 months and hopefully, by next January, we will have more juicy citrus fruit for our daily pleasures.

My last project before we head home was to use a package of 10" squares (cake plates) and stitch them together and use my larger Let's Twist ruler to cut the blocks.  This is sewn together now and packed, ready for layering, quilting and binding when I am back 'home'.  A great way to make a fun quilt.


  1. Travel safely, friend.

  2. Happy trails for you and a safe uneventful trip. The weather is a bit cold and coming from the south I feel it but looking forward to guild again. See you soon, Marge
