Here I am ..........

So ........ it's only been a few months ( as in 6) since I last posted anything ....... ugh!  How dare the day job get in my way so much !!!!   I have managed to squeeze in the start ( notice "start" not "finish") of a couple of projects.  This first one is a high school graduation quilt ( and yes, the recipient is now in college..... but only a freshman ..... so far).  I was inspired by those cute labels sitting there by the fabric and my pen ( found in the scrapbooking sections at Michaels)  to make a signature quilt .  And I'm using a layer cake of Kate Spain "Sunnyside"  fabric that I just LOVE !!!

Here is the preliminary layout with Sam's assistance. 

......and here we have Daisy lounging on the beginnings of a baby quilt (my niece's baby girl due at the end of this month .....).   Of course my family is taking bets on whether this will be finished in time for the baby to go to kindergarten or college !!!  

Well, hope to be back soon with a picture of one of these quilts actually finished ( but lets not hold our breath !)

Be back soon ! (aren't I being optimistic !)
