I’m still here :)

I am not lost in my sewing room.  Just have been so busy these days in the new year.  A lot of projects at work, so it has been so good just to relax when I comes home.  Been reading blogs, but have not been a good blogger myself. And I have been terrible bad in not commenting on your blogs.  But for you who want to follow be on istagram I am there as abyquilt (of course)

Cold weather and snow storms made me pull this quilt out of the box.  Still a lot of handquilting to do on it, but I have to take it slooooooow.  Did too much handquilting one day and the next day my arm was not good.  So perhaps if I do just a couple of threads each day (now and then) it will be finished one day.  As you see one special guy have claimed this quilt for his.

Started to sew these cute basket blocks from Blacbird Designs blog.  You can find the pattern here if you want to make some too. They are so fun to sew.

I have also prepped some blocks for my Phebe quilt. So easy to just enter the sewingroom and sew a few blocks now and then.  I am a big fan of spending a whole day just prepping and put the parts into small plastic bags.

Progress on my Phebequilt. I have finished all four borders with needleturn.  And have sewed three of them to the center piece.  Doing mitered corners with needleturn applique.  Quick and easy way to do mitered corners.

Still have a lot of needlturn to do in the four corners.  Birds, more flowers and acorns.

And then this book came in my mailbox.  Hurray….a new project designed by Sue Daley.  I ordered this book and bought the fabric back in september at the Norwegian Quilt festival. Finally it came and I am looking forward to start sewing this quilt.

Will add some of my own fabrics to it.  And I have had a fun day prepping some blocks for it already.  Easy to bring in my purse when going away for a visit.

You do such lovely work. I love the soft colors of your Phoebe quilt (one I've wanted to make forever). The first quilt is so "clean looking". That was a favorite phrase from my mother and it was high praise. I think she meant that things were in the right place and not muddled all together. It is a very pleasant quilt to see as I look from one block to the other. The red and white quilt book is a keeper and beautiful fabric choices - keep sewing.

The Phebe is just lovely. I can't believe how much you have done already! Will you be bringing it to Shipshe this fall to share? I hope so!!!!
Looks like you have worked on many projects since Christmas, and they are all wonderful - nice and relaxing stitching.
