I'm still alive.....

Yes, I am still here.

I hope everyone had a lovely day with their families yesterday and if you are like me and get a long weekend I hope you will do something fun that you really want to do with the rest of it.

I will be cleaning my bathroom.... once that is done I get to sew though!

I did finish the wedding quilt I was making 2 days before the wedding on June 5th.  I just haven't had time to do much of anything other than work, eat, sleep, work, eat, sleep... you get the gist.

Wedding quilt for William and Kelly:


After that my daughter decided to box up her room so she could do a remodel.  All of her boxes are stacked around my sewing area blocking my access to the quilter and the machine I usually use to piece.  Despite that I finished a baby quilt in October for a coworker who loves owls. I backed it with Care Bear fabric because my co-worker's name is Carrie and a couple of us call her Care Bear... I only call her that in my head.. ;) LOL! 

Carrie's baby quilt for Baby Lily:



The only other sewing I've done is I'm working on a Pineapple quilt in fall colors or earth tones (whichever you prefer) for Patty, the boss I had before I transferred teams to the job I have now.  My new team and I are already planning the quilt for my new boss for next year's Bosses Day.  I get to fabric shop in the very near future for that.  The pattern they picked will be quick but I plan to embroider the blocks so that will be the most time consuming part.

Basically that is it here.  Just a lot of working.  The new role I have at my company means I don't get to work from home as often as I used to but my new boss told me that if I am feeling comfortable enough with what I'm doing now I can start taking a day once in while to work from home so that will be nice.  It will save me the 2 hours or more that I spend commuting each day.  Maybe I could spend that time sitting at the sewing machine. :)

Everyone stay safe and warm!

That's it from here for now.

Hi. Nice to see you blogging again. The wedding quilt turned out really beautiful. Hopefully you'll get the chance to do a bunch more sewing soon.
