Well, I have been very busy cutting and more cutting of the En Provence Mystery quilt.  I did get a lot of sewing done.  I thought with all this cutting and sewing I should have enough to make my blocks....  So off to making a small design board.

Pictured here

I took some cardboard that I covered the front with batting.  I sprayed it with tacky glue to hold the batting in place.  Then used decorative duck tape around the edges to hold it down.  Works great to take with you to a retreat or class.   Easy to replace when it no longer holds it's shape.



After I got that made, I started to place what I had sewn together on my new design board.   Boy after studying other blocks I found on Quiltville's FB page.   I found that I was still missing some pieces so I could not display the whole block.  I was sad....  So off to so see what was still needed.  After all my cutting I forgot to do the Clue 3 and 4.   GRR  I still have more cutting to do.  Oh well.  I'm just happy I love this quilt enough to finish it.  :)

This one is going on my bed.  Can't wait to finish it!!  Here is my progress, remember nothing has been sewn yet.  It's just on my new design wall as the big design wall is busy with another project.

 So happy so far with what I have going on.  Still can't wait to see more if it done.  Time will tell... My goal it to get a bit more cutting done before I start my Ham Radio class next weekend.  That will keep me busy for the next 4 weeks.

Great way to learn how to use your AnglePlay Templates.   This took me out of my comfort zone.  But I did it!  Going to my 1st retreat in Feb. with Margaret Miller the original owner and Julie the current owner.  Now to quilt and bind it!!  :)

This was a Hoffman Challenge, I was sent the black fabric with design and I purchased Hoffman solids to go with this blanket.  I used Angle play templates  to create my design.

I've been a way for a very long time.

Wow, time has past since I was last here. I was taking care of my dad after work each day, not getting home till 8 or 8:30 each night. This took a lot of time. I would not have traded it for anything. You see he had Vascular dementia and Alzheimer. I had so many questions and got a lot of answers. But we also had a lot of fun. I really enjoyed my time with my dad these last few years. He passed December 10th 2015. I'm having a hard time getting back to a different routine. Now I have time to fix dinner at a normal hour, clean my house, spend time with my husband and family. My dogs have enjoyed me being home more. I now can battle the darn blackberries in my yard. Boy did they take over. I'm also looking for when I can work in my crafts. I have always wanted to quilt and do embroidery. I will post what I'm making here for you to enjoy. I'm glad to be back.
