It's been so long since I spent time in the Board and I feel sort of lost with all the posts to recheck and photos to look at. Everyone's been so busy and doing lovely pieces of art.
It been a long time since I've been able to sit in my sewing cave and spend the day sipping coffee, stitching, and fabric dreaming. We remodeled the basement over the winter and all the stuff from one side of the basement was moved into my sewing cave and I was not able to even get to a corner of
It was a rainy weekend, so I used the time to finish up the quilting on two quilts of valor. I used pantographs on both quilts. The star quilt got a simple swirl. It is a great panto because it can go two passes without having to advance the quilt. This makes the quilting go nice and quick.

Most of our kids are college bound next year. We won't need that much room anymore and will be less to maintain as we age. When looking for a new home, I kept in mind the need for room for my Z44 frame if it was to ever be expanded to Cali King size. I have also been thinking of storage issues. Maybe a cube
