Quilting Gallery's Giving Thanks Blog Hop Party

Well...it's been awhile hasn't it?

I am still here but to be honest, this little slice of blogland hasn't been high on my priority list this year.  While 2013 has been a year of challenges, I'm still trying to work my way back and  couldn't think of any better way to try to come back than with a "Giving Thanks" blog hop being hosted by Michele at Quilting Gallery.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways



I have plenty to be thankful for including wonderful family and friends. The professionals in the medical field, and in the palliative care field I've dealt with this year have touched my heart and soul more than I can ever express.

My wonderful husband made a dedicated work area for me as a birthday gift, but I'm afraid I've lacked the focus or energy to do much sewing or quilting this year. I'm hopeful that 2014 will be a better year.

My finished projects this year are far and few between, but I did manage to finish a QAYG Noodlehead 241 tote for myself (working in very short spurts LOL)

 and a Made by Rae Geranium dress for a very special little girl.


And that's all I have to show from the past 11 months.

I have a half yard of Kona Solid to give away as a thanks for reading my blog. To enter, follow me on Pinterest (you'll find lots of tutorials for just about anything you could ever want to make!) and leave me a comment letting me know you are following me. (I'll be checking LOL). Sorry, but this giveaway is for Canadian residents only this time.  Giveaway open until 11:59 PM Sunday (November 24).   ETA--Giveaway now closed. Thanks for stopping by.
