ok . . . so what have I been up to . . . it seems the last 6 or 7 quilts I've made I have designed myself . . . all English paper piecing . . . and I have been sharing my ideas and designs with my classes . . . a few months ago the owner of the shop where I teach suggested I write up the patterns and sell them . . . soooooooo . . .
here is the first one . . . the pattern will be out by the end of June . . . it is called "Marley Town Square" and everything in it is English paper piecing except the outer borders . . .
the paper pieces needed are the 1" hexagon . . . and the large house (which is a custom paper only available at Candlelite Quilts in Chelmsford, MA . . . www.candlelitequilts.com . . . and yes, she will take orders by phone . . . when my pattern is available she will also have that . . . if anyone is interested . . .

. . . well I’ve been absent from my blogging for a very long time . . . as you all know my Mom became very ill in the Fall of 2009 . . . she spent almost 2 years in a nursing facility . . . I visited her just about every single day . . . things were very hectic those 2 years . . . but I wouldn’t trade any of those days I spent with her . . . they were very precious hours . . .
my Mom passed away this past September . . . I miss her every single day . . . and would give anything to be able to visit her every day again . . . except that I wouldn’t want to watch her suffer as she did . . . I know she is in a much better place now . . .
but it doesn’t stop me from missing her so very very much . . .
my life has settled down now . . . sort of . . . there is a lot going on but it’s good stuff and so I’ll take it . . . my plan is to begin blogging again . . . so you will see some new things soon . . .
