I have been sewing, not that you'd know.

I have GOT to get back on a blogging schedule. I miss everyone!

Alright, so while I can still chat about what's happening in my new endeavors for a healthier me, it's important to note that aside from the physical efforts, I've been ensuring I'm staying healthy mentally, too. Trying to sew several times a week.  I'll give details later on the quilt tops when finished but for now, and because I feel I owe you some photos for being so patient, here's a little roll through of things I've completed or am working on over the last month or two.

A QOV quilt top.
 A jelly roll strip quilt top.
 A foundation pieced quilt top using the block from my SQ Paper-Piece QAL 2011.
 2 blocks for a friend making a comfort quilt.
 More blocks for SIL's quilt.
 A quilt for a co-worker.

 An improv quilt top from fabrics I had to have but had no plan for.
 My first ever zippered pouch for a pouch swap at the Stash Bash Retreat!
 Lanyards & pillowcases (one for a friend) for the retreat.


I'll chat a bit more about the Stash Bash retreat really soon but can leave this post's eye candy with the following thought.  If you have a chance to go to a retreat, meet up with a bunch of like-minded quilters (sewists/crafters), just go. It's fun, relaxing and just plain good to get out and meet new people.

Cheers!
Beck

Girl, you have been crazy busy. Where do you find the time? You and me both need to get back on the blogging path. Are you going to the QU show at the end of the month?
