No, I haven't fallen off the planet.

I've just sort of been really busy of late. I have a few pics to share, however. Firstly, I had to share these beautiful flowers with you folk. Spring is just around the corner. Can you feel it?

I will miss those beautiful sunsets we have in the wintertime, however. Here's a sunset from the not so distant past. I love how the silhouette of the trees looks like lace.

As some of you know, I've been helping one of my dear older pals settle into assisted living. Phyl is extremely craft-oriented -- she hated giving up her home to move into a beige room. She's been craving color. I decided she needed a special something to brighten up her room. This is my first foray into making an actual machine-pieced quilt. It's been very interesting. I'm sure my next attempt will be better.

Lastly, I've gotten two of my three blocks for the Palmetto Tat Days scholarship fundraiser quilt well underway -- do these look finished? I hope so. I've started on block #3. Georgia still has some needing homes. Oh - these two are my tribute to Tennessee. I can't wait to see this quilt finished!

Love your blocks. I've just realised that mine is too plain! I like Dolly and Elvis!

oh I never thought (rarely do think as a matter of fact) I was so intent on tatting being a theme I never thought of where the tatting was being done. Very clever and lovely designs. When I grow up I want to be just like you.
