Getting Back on Track

I think I have mentioned it before, but I have been having trouble getting back into things for a couple of months. Finally, I am getting there.

This is a quilt that was part of a workshop when Jo Morton first visited Texas way back in 2007. It was put on the back burner for awhile and then hung in the closet waiting to be quilted. I took it to my long arm quilter and as always Sheri did a great job. My friend Sarah helped me find just the right binding. Thanks Jo for designing it and Sarah for having a great eye .Eagle QuiltI was out of town for a few days attending a wedding and catching up with family. When I arrived back home this was waiting for me. It is a needlepoint tree ornament that I had finished and had sent off to the finisher. I think they did a great job – especially since it is an odd shape. Sorry the photo isn’t better. Maybe I should hit Santa up for a new camera!

Roof Top Santa OrnamentToday I am hand quilting a small Irish Chain quilt and I just put a pot of Anasazi Beans on to cook. I used this recipe except since I did not have any Jalapeno bacon I used black peppered bacon and two minced Jalapenos, with seeds removed. I will mix up some cornbread and pop it into the oven to bake and dinner will be ready. I like it when I can just put my dinner on to cook and forget it don’t you?

Later today, when it cools a little, I need to run out and buy some Mylar and get a challenge quilt started.

Until next time …
