Updates on everything!

Whew. No blogging. Let's talk about that. I have been crafting. Quilting. Baking. Knitting. We've had fun stuff going on. Christmas. Trips to museums. Vacations. Why no blogging?

I think partly I'm relying on Instagram. I really love the format of quick and easy and many of my crafty friends and using it a lot, too. On the downside....You can't explain your photo as much and the photos are small. I definitely get more feedback on Instagram than I get here.

So, I'm going to try something new. I'm going to set a short-term goal to post here once a week. Maybe a routine and habit will keep me posting here (which I enjoy when I do it) more often. I am also cutting back on the time I spend on Facebook. It has become a time filler for no real reason. I considered getting rid of my account but that seems kind of extreme especially since a lot of my college friends keep up with each other that way.

On to crafty-ness: My Penny Sampler is quilted and ready for binding! Here is a sneak peek before quilting:

This quilt is very busy and crazy and I love it. It is such a departure from my usual style. I really got the hang of paper piecing through this class - check out that dala horse! I love the Scandinavian motifs and the cheerful colors and that little village. I hope to bind it this week.

I also finished a Taffy Quilt top.

I have eyed this pattern since I saw a shop sample many months ago. Then I saw a few made by Lee and I was smitten. I wanted the circular pattern to pop in mine so I chose my fabrics carefully. I think it works. I will post a picture of the whole things once it's quilted and bound.

Okay, if you're still here thank you! I will plan to post again on Sunday and plan to have at least one finished quilt by then!

Real life is always more important than blogging, but I'm glad to see you back.

Your quilts are very cheery!

This looks FANTASTIC! I love all that Nordika, and I agree with you about this wild crazy quilt - it was fun!
