Getting back to it….

I am sure we have all had those weeks. You know when you have no idea when you will get back to your hobbies (i.e. quilting) or blogging. That has been my last month at work.

Good news though, I was able to go on our Modern Quilt Guild’s retreat this weekend, jump starting a couple of projects. It was great to spend time with friends and so many great projects were created/worked on!!

One of my biggest successes this weekend, was I finally started quilting Phased Circles, choosing matchstick quilting. I love how the first block has turned out, however I could be in trouble for finishing this up Nov 30th for quiltcon….the one block took at least 12 hours….5 more to go.
