Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

Back again!

Had a wonderful quick visit home. It was so good to see friends and family, even for a very short visit.  Some of the little ones just grow so fast!

Managed to, with some very last minute planning, connect with some old high school friends.  Amazing - after nearly 35 years, still able to slip back into the old conversations!
I also re-connected with a few other friends and had a fabulous time.  It was race week in Chester, and we just happened to be able to grab a ride out to where the races were taking place.  So lovely to be out on the water, with the sun and the wind in our faces!

Now that I'm back, I've got a few projects that still need to get finished - the reveal date for the second Tangled Textiles challenge is this Thursday - I've made some progress, but a lot more work is in order.  I've had some fun creating some painted, stamped and photo transferred fabric around the theme Celebrate, and we'll have to wait and see how much of it makes it's way into the finished piece.

Before I left, I quickly added two borders to "The Wedding Quilt".  Unfortunately, I don't like them, so now they have to come off and be re-worked.  Drats!  That means that present is probably going to be even later than first thought.  Off to get some work done!

Happy quilting!

Glad you had a good time. Look forward to seeing Thursday's reveal. Pity about the borders but at least you decided before you got the binding on!

Great pictures, well except for the peek...I always want to see more. LOL
Sorry about the borders, but I have found if I don't like something it is better to just redo it or I will never be happy.
