I'm back from blogger hiatus!

I hope I can keep up blogging now that I decided to take the plunge and start again. My daughter Lisa told me it had been six months since my last post. Really? I told her I had a plan to start on March 1st but I am doing it a couple days early!

I don't know where the fall went and then of course was Christmas and mostly I just did quilting for others. I will slowly try to catch up on photos.

January and February have not been great with several health issues (mono was just the start and I'm still fighting the tiredness of that) but I managed to finish a quilt top today. I started the embroidery after Christmas from Alex Anderson. I used colored pencil to fill in the embroidery and really enjoyed that. I used a bunch of 2.5" 30's squares from my friend Deb, who unfortunately passed away recently. I should have tried to brighten the photo a bit.

On the way back from Deb's memorial service in central WA I stopped at Palouse Falls. I love waterfalls and the landscape around this is so impressive. My friend Robin had not been there before and it was a nice break in the drive.
