Hello World

So turns out when we left the old house behind, we left internet connectivity behind too.  Who knew that it would take almost two months to convince Comcast that there is indeed a house on this lot and that we would happily pay for their services if they would only come out and connect us to the world…

But anyway, blasting the cable company is all too easy, what have I been up to?  I’ve been doing lots of English paper piecing,

I attended my first DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting a couple weeks ago and loved it,

been sketching new fabric designs like crazy.

(Violet helped me by coloring these ones in.  Thanks Sweetie!)

(The thumbnails usually end up being my favorite part of making a collection.  Everything looks so nice and crisp here in black and white.)

I checked out Denyse Schmidt’s Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration from the library, and it has me itching to make, of all things, a tied comforter our of just a few big pieces of fabric.  Perfectly simple, a weekend project, with something beautiful and a feeling of accomplishment at the end.  A September project I am hoping, still getting my little girls’ room together in my mind.

So that’s where I’ve been.  And now back to sketching is where I’m going.
