Happy Weekend Everyone!!

Busy, busy, busy week this past week. I started a new job with an allergist and worked at a Mollen clinic. Of course the highlight was my BIRTHDAY!! I don't usually brag about my birthday, but what the heck, I may not have many left!!! No there isn't any medical problems, but I am over 50 now and I doubt I have 50 more years to go....

One of the things that we have decided to do is to move. Yep, you read right, we are moving. For now it is going to be into a temporary place and put everything into storage. So that means the quilting is going to slow waaaaaaay down. I will be able to get tops done and sew little projects, but the quilt frame will have to go into storage. That's okay it will make it easier for me to concentrate on my new job and maybe we will be able to take a couple of road trips!!

On one of my forums I joined a Birthday Block Swap for this year and I have received 4 blocks so far. Here they are, aren't they BEAUTIFUL??

Now here are the blocks I have been swapping for the Sew Along. Every 2 weeks we have a new pattern and partner. These quilts will be prized possessions when I get them together.

I packed up some of my blocks I have ready to put into quilts and other blocks I have swapped. I have enough swapped blocks to make about 5 quilts. Maybe one day I'll be able to get them done!!!

Since we are moving we are having a garage sale. I am not keeping a lot of our big furniture so if you are in the area come on over on the 24th and you just may pick up some good deals.

Next week I will be teaching a class at Church how to sew together pillow cases, then in November I will be teaching a couple quilt classes. I can't wait for the quilt classes!! It shall be so much fun. I'll also be able to drop my favorite sewing machine off to have an over haul. She sure has been temperamental lately and I'm not sure why. I guess it is just because I work her to hard!!

Well, I am off for some more packing.

Happy Quilting,
