Good Grief!

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.”-Alfred Tennyson

Thinking about this blog, and blogging have been in constant conflict for the last few weeks and months. (hence the above quote). This truth is I have been buried, swallowed up, embedded, in writing another book. Don’t ask me what the book is about, you know the drill. Later friends later! I will say that while the book has been a lot of work, it was worth the effort. Now, I am ready to blog. reconnect and chat it up. Let’s hope I still have followers to join me back here in blog land. There is so much to talk about so I’ll just pick my topics and get to writing.

Holey Cow I have work to do!  I need to catch up with my fellow designers  sewing and creating the blocks that will become part of the 2014 Aurifil Designers quilt. I have blocks to make!!!! I think I will work backward (backward works for me in a strange sort of crazy way) and get these blocks done. Let’s just begin with this month August!

aurifil 2014 Aug designer of the month Michele Foster

Michele Foster is the August designer. Michele owns the Quilting gallery . I met Michele at market several years ago and was impressed with her desire to get quilters connected through the internet. You should go visit her web site for sure but get a cuppa coffee/beverage because you are going to be there a while. I am over the moon about her adorable block. A BUTTON BLOCK! Michele girl you are speakin my language. Good job. How about a whole button quilt! 

                                          aurifil-block August

 Remember if you make a block and post it to the Aurifil  flicker group , by August 8th you have a chance to win A WHOLE BOX of Aurifil thread.  Nice nice nice. I happen to be addicited to the stuff.

I’m off to make my block so let’s sew together today. I want YOU to win that fabulous thread box.

Leave a comment here and let me know you are still reading. I’m so happy to be back, blogging and reconnect with friends. Send me some love people.

    I know exactly what you mean and I’m not writing a book! Life keeps getting faster and faster, so much that sometimes I think I’m going to fly right off this planet!
    What a teaser and a great segue, will be anxious to see what classy items are in this one and I’ll need to make room on my bookcase for another one of yours, lol.
