very little sewing...

Have not sewn much at all because am so busy with regular life and injured family member. Did manage to finish and send off this block to the lovely and talented Victoria for her signature quilt. I designed the block from a photo of a tile in one of the million interior design books piled up around our mid-reno and never-to-be-finished house. The tile translated really easily into patchwork. This block is 6 1/2" but I may scale it up, change the background and make a bed size quilt out of all my blue Kaffe Fassett fabrics...

brief pause...

My husband broke his leg requiring surgery and lots of hardware. He will be fine but needs lots of loving care so needless to say the new blog is being neglected. Please be patient and I will try to post tons when things settle down a bit...

freaking out...

I just discovered that my quilt (pictured below) won "Best in Show" in this online contest. Am having heart palpitations! My most profound thanks to the organizers of this challenge, the judges, all the participants and in particular my swap partner Tanya A. from sunny California. It was a fantastic experience. Love that because of the internet we can meet and befriend people from all over the world who otherwise we would never get to know. I love seeing everyone's work and reading about their thoughts and ideas. Must get my technological act together and post more of my own... (Am a complete dork in this department. Very often my phone takes pictures of the inside of my handbag. If you know me and you're really lucky it will email them to you ON ITS OWN). Thank you, Thank you, thank you again everyone for the opportunity to be a part of the Brown Bag Quilt Contest!
