Hi again!

I'm finally posting again. It's been alittle while & I'm sorry about that. Things are busy around here as always! Ashley's basketball team won their game on Saturday. They are still undefeated!!! YEA!! :) Ashley is such a great player and Tom is such a great coach. And of course I'm such a great "cheerleader"!

I started a new book today. It's the first book in the "Mitford Years" series by Jan Karon. I started "At Home in Mitford" today & am now on chapter four. My mom has been recommending these books for a long time & I'm finally getting started on them. So far I'm liking them alot. I think Mitford sounds like a great place to live! I wonder if there are any little towns like that left in America. Everything seems so overpopulated with people & stores anymore. I yearn for the simple life.

I've been working on string blocks as well as other stuff. I really like doing the string blocks because they are so mindless. I can just sew and sew. The design when they are all put together is so neat too! Here is a picture of some I"m working on. And here is a picture of some finished blocks.

OH.....and guess what one of my wonderful internet friends sent me....... a whole envelope full of 1930's fabrics. I am so excited to get started on this quilt!! I've got a few other friends that are sending me some 30's scraps as well. It's going to be such a neat quilt when I get it finished. Thanks so much Ellen!

Just found your Blog and am enjoying it very much! Found you from your post from Stashbusters on wanting to sell your quilts, I am in the same boat, my Dh is wanting me to do the same but it is really daunting! I dabbled a little in it last year at a small craft fair and did great, write me if you would like to brainstorm some!

Hey, I saw your blog on the Learn Quilting group. It was great to see your blog! Those string blocks looked so neat! I've never done those before. Thanks for the inspiration.
