So as you may have noticed it has been a while since I have updated my blog. I confess I have been a bad bad girl ;)
With summer here and my work load increasing making time to blog always takes a back seat. School I am happy to say starts up again in a week! So with the start of school next week I should be able to write again!

I will say that a lot has happened this summer. In my last post I mentioned that I had to replace my old computer after the hard drive failed. Well that was a two week process just to get back up and running there.

One of the other things I had mentioned in other posts was the problems I was having with the Homesteader. Well, shortly after my last post I made the decision to sell the Homesteader!!! I had had enough! It sold the last week of July.
also in that time frame we waited on pin and needles to see if Stuart was going to be laid off, his company got rid of over 1,300 workers. When layoff day came, my darling husband called me and told me that I could use my money I had saved, and the money  I had gotten from the sale of the Homesteader and I could buy a ...... Brand NEW Babylock Crown Jewel!
One week later.......
This was delivered and set up in my quilting studio!
I am just about over the moon with happiness. I have done three quilts on it since it arrived (Gosh that was only two weeks ago!)

One of the quilts I did was for Wendi's daughter Kendra. Kendra won a set of blocks from Craft Warehouse as part of their block lotto, she put them together to make this beautiful black and orange top, then she let me have my way with it!

 I was totally happy with how the quilting turned out on this quilt!

Well, time to make dinner. I will start blogging again soon as I still have much to share!
Happy quilting,
