I find that while I am piecing, my mind relaxes. I can figure out things. I can put things in perspective. I feel tension leaves me. I am so thankful that I can have quilting in my life. It has brought new friends into my life. So many blessing while my hands stay busy!

Toni and I both finished the tops of the Nancy Halverson Christmas top. We are so happy. It took a little over a month. not too shabby at all...... I bought this for the back....
Now I just have to get the batting and I can finish this baby!
I started this bunny face table topper. just needs some embroidery and borders. I hopefully will have it done by next easter....
I also started a St Pat's table runner. it was a quilt as you go project. super simple. I finished the top, then realized I hadn't put the backing on the back. Poop, now what? I think I can layer the back and do some quilting and it will be good. but that defeats the quilt as you go thing doesn't it?
Next I finished the top to Bonnie Hunter's mystery! yippee!!!!
I think it's 92" square. It is a little busy for me. I am sure I will be able to find someone who absolutely loves it.
Next up Little Woolies from the Wooden Bear.
This is May, August and July - finished! now I have June, September, October, November and December and i will have the series done. I have June all prepped and ready to do the handwork. They go really fast. why have I waited so long? hmmm........
Well that's it for now. it feels good to see what I have accomplished.
