Design wall Monday

I am back after one whole month away from home
This year has brought some wonderful times and also some very trying times
After loosing both my parents within 5 months I took a much needed trip to visit with my youngest sister in San Clemente, LA
I had the most amazing time.
Today I revisited a PhD (project half done) and finished all 80 blocks
This is on my design board

Happy sewing Susan

What a busy week I have had so far
Tuesday was a public holiday and I spent it with 3 ladies sewing all day
I have stitched all my strips and sub cut them for the Bargello
Three strips have been stitched together and I am already seeing the rise and fall of the design
I have also finished a customers top and loaded the next one
Quilting is such fun!
Happy stitching

A year and then some

I see that it has been more than a year since I have blogged.
So much has happened, some sad, some exhausting, some exciting and so much happiness
I have also been quilting up a storm.
To date more than 85 customer's tops.
I am loving my "Lucey"
and hope to show you many quilted tops.
Life is wonderful and exciting and here's to sharing many happy times with you.

A long time ago.......

It seems like ages ago when I was waiting for my "Lucey"
APQS machine to arrive
So much has happened since then and I have quilted many quilts
It has been the best purchase I have made and I am so enjoying what I do.
Every single day!!
Happy piecing and quilting
