I’ve been busy for the past few years with no chance to update my blog. I’ve been working on several quilts and piling up the UFO’s. I’ve even finished a few; mostly baby quilts commissioned by coworkers and family. Not enough to finance my longarm machine yet, but still working my way towards that big purchase.

We took up mud runs a couple of years ago and have amassed a wall full of bib numbers, finishers medals, and t-shirts. Not really that good at it, but it is fun and the people we meet are the best.
The main reason for not writing was that all my time was taken up with guild stuff. I took over the web site, the newsletter, and other projects for their quilt show such as ad design, pins, and program layout. After the show, I finally stepped down to pursue my own projects and work toward my goal of moving out of Orlando to someplace less transient.
In preparation for getting married I have always wanted to create a dowry of quilts (12) as a wedding present for us, but didn’t think that marriage equality would ever get here. I’m now planning on getting married in the next few months, but no quilts done yet. I thought I’d make the classics such as Delectable Mountains, Double Wedding Ring, Bear Paw, etc.
Guess I should get back to work!
