What's up?

Greetings friends! Surprise, here I am.  Hope you're doing well.  It seems like nothing much is new here, and maybe the boring everyday things aren't interesting enough to share. Who tunes into read about how I drank coffee like I didn't drink coffee every day (or just about) since the last time I drank coffee. And in all the years since 2006 when I started this blog. 
  
 coffee

Ok, sure that coffee photo is from last year during summer. That plant isn't blooming yet.  But the days are warming up and the branches are getting all their leaves so hopefully it won't be long.  I know so many people are just getting spring time weather right now, but we're already having days in the nineties, so it's basically summer to me. Chris, on hot days you know I'm thinking about you!

TQS Pictures

Some things are new to me.  A month or so ago I started helping out over at the Quilt Show Store taking photos of incoming goods.  So many pretty things, it's a little like working in a brick and mortar shop again.  This was just a little corner of the table of things I took pictures of recently.  It's nice to get out of the house and see people even though  most of the work takes place here at home on the computer.  The extra bonus is having a little more structure in my day to day, which has led to a tiny bit more productivity in the rest of my life.  But just a tiny bit.

Mostly people follow along on instagram, and I haven't been too good with that either.  But I posted this photo a while ago, kind of a teaser at the time.  But now it's finally coming around to being able to talk about it.  Pat Sloan asked if I'd like to participate in her Table Topper Book Tour and of course I said yes!  One of the best things for me is working on things like this.  Plus the runner I made is cute, so bonus.  You can check out Pat's Instagram post about it here, and see all the sneak peeks.

Glad I hopped on over here today to catch up.  I have to reteach myself how to use blogger each time when it's been so long between posts, My last post was my little box tutorial a bit more than a year ago.  Looking at the post it seems like so much longer than that though.  The new changes are nice, once you remember how to do it.  Maybe I'll be here more often, who knows.  I know I'll be back a couple of time, once for the table toppers tour, for sure.  

So anyway most of you post on instagram and I follow along there.  Your posts always make me so happy to see and read about all the things you're up to.  Many of the way-back bloggers have kids grown up and in college or graduated and there's nothing like that to show you how time has passed by.  Maybe it' an old people thing to mention but time does seem to be flying by right, even though in the moment it seems to plod along.  I hope you're all healthy and doing well. xop

You don't know how nice it is to hear from you. I had to check recently if I had missed a blog post etc from you, as my computer 'bloglovin' sometimes doesn't seem to work. Looking forward to what you will be sewing from Pat Sloan's new book. Coffee in hand :) - I love watching her tutorials each day!

I’m trying to find blog posts again so it’s nice to find you posting. Instagram has become something new (again) and I’m not enjoying it so much. I just want to see pretty fabric and quilts, not see Reels and ads upon ads. I look forward to seeing your contribution to Pat’s book.

Getting ready to dive into Bonnie Hunter's Maymont. I have 1000's of 2" squares I inherited and plan to use a lot of them up in this quilt. Have to do a bit of extra sewing of squares instead of strips but it should be fun. Love your table topper.

Oh what fun to see this tablerunner in your fabrics! Your retro look takes me back to my younger years when the chicken feed my Mom bought was in the printed sacks. (I wish I had some of that original fabric now, but didn't like the look for my clothes as a kid. :)

I love your choice of Lori Holt fabrics. I have a lot of these so I may copy for topper and maybe make placemats to go with it.
