I'm back.

Well, the storm that was work and the marathon that was life have both slowed a bit and are letting me catch my breath.

(Here's a photo of me with my Mom I took while I was visiting her.)

My projects are all where I last left them--the postage stamp is half done, the purple wonky stars are nearly all made but not assembled, the circle skirt circle quilt top is assembled but I haven't had time to try out stitching down the narrow satin ribbons. At the top of my to-do list is the round robin I got last month, but have only just begun. If I work hard tomorrow (luckily, I'm not working) I may be able to get it done. (The next meeting is Saturday! :-o)

But I really want to start something new! What is that about?!?
There are two ideas I've gotten from the HMQG robins that I want to make; there is the dark Kona roll-up that goes beautifully with an Alexander Henry print that is more than 20 years old; there is the box I recently found full of strips and scraps left over from old projects that I would like to 'bust'; etc; etc; etc.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe St. Patrick's Day!

Welcome back lol. The picture of your hands is a great idea for a picture! I hope you manage to get your round robin project finished!
