Oh where or where has my little blog gone?

 I believe that my lack of blog posts recently is due to the fact that I have done so much this past summer, I just don't know where to begin! So... I'm going to begin with a quick post of a few great visits. 

In September, my friend Janet (RogueQuilter) and her husband took a cruise. One of the scheduled stops was Bar Harbor, Maine. The last time they came to Maine, our husbands met and really hit it off, so we were both excited at the thought of meeting them for lunch. We had a super time catching up. It went by way too quickly, but was well worth the trip! 

 


 At our "Seven Sistahs" monthly get together we decided to cut back on the food. As you can see by the "spread" we all forgot or simply ignored our decision. There is always too much food, but oh so much fun!! 

 
At our previous meeting, Karen M. brought a number of goodies from her Aunt Marsha. One of them was this unfinished block. We decided to do a round robin and them donate the finished quilt in the end. Fotini did the first border.
 

I added the blue 4-patches. 
 

Also in September, this exciting news - Barb Vedder (FunWithBarb) was featured in Quiltmania. 

Cecile Denis did a wonderful job writing the article and the photographs are just beautiful! Barb also designed this fabulous quilt and her pattern is included in this issue (#157). 

I highly recommend subscribing to this publication. I know people say that it is expensive (what isn't??), but it truly is worth every penny. 

Over the weekend I had a visit from someone I have been wanting to meet in person for years!! Linda Collins (Quilts in the Barn) and her friends, Brenda and Liz came all the way from Australia just to visit me! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚  Actually, they are here on a two week vacation after which Linda will be the guest star in a two week tour (America's Heart Tour). I was so thrilled that they were able to visit my little corner of Maine! 

 
 

That's it for now. Hopefully, I wont lose momentum and will post a few things I've been working on soon!
