I'm still here!

You'd think I'd fallen off the edge of the earth! I always look forward to January as it is a new beginning and a fresh chance to catch up and start over. This year it zoomed by so quickly that I almost forgot it was here. And now February is following right along beside it. This winter has been one for the record books. I'm so looking forward to seeing some mud outside instead of ice, slush and snow!

Although I haven't been posting, I have tried to keep up with your blogs and I have been sewing on lots of projects.

Yesterday I finished the binding on my log cabin flag quilt! This was a kit from The Hen House in Charlotte, MI last year. They were featured in The Quilt Sampler with this quilt. The logs were cut one inch and finish at 5 inches and the flag is wool. It's one of my favorites.

I've made the first two blocks from Barbara Brackman's latest offering on her Civil War blog.

Also have the first two months of the Prairie Rose Sampler done. Those blocks are huge!

Here are a couple of flimsy finishes:

The first was a kit from The Quilted Cottage bought a few years ago and the second was made from an Amish block swap in Shipshewana back in 2005.

There's lots more to share. I will be back very soon. :-)
