Featured with an Announcement

Well I am back!!  My sweet husband and I spent the last 4 days in the beautiful sunshine of Montego Bay.  It was a wonderful trip and a super nice way to celebrate our 10th anniversary.  We tried lots of new water activities including snorkeling and sailing which I throughly enjoyed.  And we ate, and ate, and ate!!  It was so nice to just spend time relaxing and enjoying. And now the snow here has kicked me back into reality, so here it goes.

Back to some quilting, Yippee Skippee!!  I really did miss you Bernina :)  I am super excited to say that I got a nice welcome home present from the lovely ladies over at Quilt Story as they are featuring my Nature's Pathway quilt today.  Isn't that fun!!!  Click on over to check it out :)

What is even more fun and exciting, is that you will notice in the write-up a certain mention of doing this as a Quilt-A-Long come February.  That's right, I am making it official!!!  I am planning a quilt-a-long of this quilt, or a similar variation to it some time next month.  I am super excited about this.

What makes me totally super excited about this is that I get to use my Anniversary present to design it.  My sweet husband got me EQ7 and I can't wait to try it out.  So stay tuned for future details.  I am so excited :)

Pin It!
