I'mmmmmmmmmmmm Baaaaaccccckkk

At loooooooonnnnngggggg last, here I am!!! Back at the ol' bloggin ranch!!! What have I been up to during this horrific absence, you ask??? Wellllll.....I had to have a second back surgery...which wasn't great fun and kinda laid me up....then there was the holidays and all the "stuff" that's involved with them, plus I worked in a couple three meetings with a new group I helped found...the Rocky Mountain Crazy Quilters. I've finished a couple...well, more than that technically, projects which I shall endeavor to post here if I can just remember HOW!!!!! Sooooo, anywhoo.....much thanks to the ever persistent Mary Frances of Frequently Wrong But Never In Doubt fame for getting me back to my cq senses!!!!

The first pic i'm going to try to share with you will be of a very bright, cq'd doll quilt that I made for my grand daughter for her birthday. The second pic i'm tryint to post is of a little cq tree skirt for my grand son's mini xmas tree or maybe vice versa depending on how you look at the pics! LOL!!! Anywhoo, I'm in the process of trying to design a "line" as it were, of cqey and/or embroidered labels for projects such as this that commemorates the maker and the date much like a quilt label. I don't think i've shown either of these projects in this forum....but if I have, please forgive. My memory just ain't what it used to be. ;-)

As to the future....wellllll, i'm starting the 2002 Piecekeepers quilt with all the appliqued trees and cq blocks and such. I hooked up with Mary Frances on this one too....we're going to reward each other if we make our goals of two blocks per month! The reward being a bottle of wine. Hmmmm.....could make for some interesting stitching! LOL!!!!

Wellll, off to figure out how to get the pics in here and get started on supper!!! Later gators!!!
