Busy ~~~ Love it~

Has been a busy couple of weeks. My Dad had his shoulder replaced so I was playing nurse since my brother & one of my sister works. All went great, giving the praise to God for it.

I recently got a new book in the mail called
Civil War Sewing Circle, The: Quilts and Sewing Accessories Inspired by the Era. I absolutely fell in love with this, talk about getting my quilting juices flowing. So I'm breaking out some of my reproduction fabrics to get started on something this weekend.

I did however finish up my mystery quilt, going to post some pictures once I get my camera all charged & ready to go. How did you gals doing the mystery quilts turned out?? I'd love to see some pictures.

I'm also in the middle of getting ready for a quilting getaway a couple of friend are doing. I can't wait, need a break from life, LOL. I'm hoping to get some quilts quilted out so I can bind them there, and the way it looks I'll be doing some small quilts as well. I'm thinking of doing a muted pink & brown quilt, a scrappy one, and even maybe a kansas trouble one as well. I love decorating with small quilts, I use them with my primitive dolls, on top of my singer treadle, on top of tables, and hanging on the walls.

Have a blessed day
Carolyn

I'm piecing together a log cabin variation in muted pinks and browns. I really like it ... can't wait to see yours.

I'm so glad I found your blog!
