It's been a while

Gosh, it's been a while since my last post. So much has been happening.
Where do I start?

My daughter's friend wanted a vintage prom dress. She bid on a few she found on e-bay but was out bid each time. So, I offered to make her a dress. We found a McCalls pattern that was printed in 1952.
We went shopping for fabric and she found some lovely fabric. The dress is almost done; she comes tomorrow night for a final fitting. Oh my it's been a while since I have sewn other then quilts.

Bear my gelding was chased threw a fence and received some nasty wounds.
He is doing much better now and we are are even back to riding.

I started my Pinwheels and Posies BOM.
WOW the colors are wonderful and the pattern is so well written I am so excited about this project.

The pattern I had published is really starting to take off. The printing is now on it's third run. Wow, what a thrill.

Now on to some sad news. A dear friend of mine has been diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. She has had surgery and is recovering at home. Soon she will start her Chemotherapy and Radiation. So, I wanted her to have a special hug from me and I started a chemo quilt.
I'm using Moda's new line, called "Maypole"
It's nice and bright, and I'm using a white on white.

Well, that should catch you up to speed as to what is going on here.
I hope all is going well in your corner of the world.
Hope to see you again
