And how has it been a month since I posted. No clue.
I have been sewing like crazy. A few of us are making quilts 40 X 60 inches for the flood victims of Haywood County NC. They were flooded out from hurricane Fred. Our plan to provide enough to give out at Christmas time. A lot of fabric has been used of which I am so glad. I need to see more progress so I will keep going.
I recently went on a quilt retreat in Jonesborough TN which was fabulous. It was a Sunday through Thursday morning long and boy did we eat. So much food, all good. And the sewing …. I did get my leaders and Enders top together. I will insert a better picture next time. This is in progress.
The black and white corner stone patches were a happy accident as I forgot my jar of of 1.5 inch squares. Looking through the fabric I had brought I chose this one and it was perfect.
Some pictures of projects happening around the room:
It was a fun retreat and I signed up for next year. 🐸.

I have had these blocks made for well over a year and decided it was time for me to turn them into a top. Well I did and still have a small stack left.

Time seems to be just flying by this year. I am going with the flow. Here are some of my creations of late:
This one was a piece that used all my large and small triangles in conjunction with a 3.5 inch square. I love it and it has already been turned in with about eight others quilts for kids

I arranged to drop off Quilty Hug Quilts and have started sharing them again. For a long time I wondered about not being in the moment when a quilt is given. It’s taken me 2 1/2 years to come to terms with this. In the end just knowing my quilts get to a cancer patient is enough. I have grieved over this enough. I guess this is also part of my grieving process from loosing my husband to cancer 2 1/2 years ago. It’s time to move on…. So today I dropped off these quilts.
